Grandbridge Finances $8,850,000 Bi-Lo Anchored Retail Center

Published On: 03.05.15

Raleigh, N.C. — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed an $8,850,000 first mortgage loan for the acquisition of Camfield Corners, a 69,857 square foot shopping center anchored by Bi-Lo located in the Ballantyne-area of Charlotte, N.C 

Raleigh-based Wesley Fricks originated the transaction on behalf of a New York-based borrower.

Grandbridge successfully worked with the borrower and lender to structure the transaction to meet the borrower’s objectives and the acquisition timeline. This collaborative relationship enabled the borrower to accomplish all set goals to ensure the long-term success of the investment. Grandbridge worked with Starwood Mortgage Capital, a CMBS lender, to provide a fixed-rate, 10-year mortgage with a 30-year amortization. The property was 97 percent occupied at closing. 

“With the work on Elm Lane, which fronts the property, finally complete, and the strength of the surrounding demographics, we feel this center is well-positioned for continued success,” explained Fricks.
