Published On: 12.02.10

A $61,189,000 first mortgage loan secured by Park at Arlington Ridge I, a 435-unit garden style multifamily property in Arlington, Va., was originated by Grandbridge Real Estate Capital’s Washington, D.C.-based Senior Vice Presidents Paul Aanonsen and Jack Bauer.  Funding for the fixed rate refinance loan was provided by Freddie Mac under its Capital Markets Execution (CME) product. “Freddie Mac’s CME product enabled the borrower to better manage its refinance risk and at a much lower interest rate than initially anticipated,” explained Aanonsen.
