Grandbridge Provides Financing for The Bricks Perimeter Center

Published On: 01.07.16

ATLANTA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital closed a $52,000,000 acquisition loan secured by the first mortgage on The Bricks Perimeter Center, a 448-unit apartment community located at 302 Perimeter Center North in Atlanta, Ga. 

The acquisition loan was originated by Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie and Assistant Vice President Thomas Wiedeman.

Funding for the loan was provided through BB&T Real Estate Funding, a proprietary lending program of Grandbridge Real Estate Capital. The nonrecourse loan featured an interest-only period and a fixed interest rate below four percent with a very flexible prepayment structure.

“To meet the client’s needs we were able to structure a long-term permanent loan with the flexibility of a short-term bank loan, giving the client options during the loan term,” Tapie said.

After the planned renovation, the building will feature a new clubhouse, landscaping and common area improvements, as well as upgraded unit interiors.
