Grandbridge Finances Texas Retail Center

Published On: 09.25.14

HOUSTON — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a first mortgage loan secured by Central Park Plaza shopping center in McKinney, Texas. The transaction was originated by Houston-based Gill Dolan. Funding for the 10-year, nonrecourse financing was arranged through ViewPoint Bank.

The asset was built in 1985 and was 80 percent occupied at the time of the funding. 

“The loan request required a sophisticated lender that understands the strength of the sponsorship as well as local knowledge of the Highway 75 expansion, which has an estimated completion of June 2015,” said Dolan.
