Charlotte, N.C. — The Charlotte production office of Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently originated and closed a $21,600,000 first mortgage loan secured by Morrison at SouthPark, a 214-unit Class A residential community located in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

Charlotte-based Grandbridge Senior Vice President Mike Ortlip arranged the acquisition financing through a major insurance company. “The lender believed in the buyer’s ability to acquire and optimize the operations of this incredible infill mixed-use property. Their willingness to deliver competitive pricing and a customized loan structure met all of the borrower’s needs, and the asset’s complicated condominium ownership structure called for a lender with the ability to think outside the box,” said Ortlip.
