Published On: 11.08.13

ATLANTA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $5,400,000 first mortgage loan secured by Global Mall, an 185,000 square foot South Asian mall in Norcross, Ga. 

The refinance transaction was originated by Atlanta-based Brad Walker.  Funding for the loan was provided by a life insurance company and featured a 10-year term and 20-year amortization.

“The ability to offer a long-term, fixed rate at historically attractive pricing on a non-traditional asset allowed Grandbridge to meet the borrower’s investment objectives,” stated Walker.
