Grandbridge Facilitated $12.4 Million Florida Hospitality Refinance

Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $12,400,000 first mortgage loan secured by Courtyard Marriott – Madeira Beach, a 91-room luxury hotel in Madeira Beach, Fla.

The transaction, originated by Grandbridge Columbus, Ohio-based Vice President Doug Brooks, was arranged through one of Grandbridge’s CMBS relationships.

The refinance featured a 10-year term and a 30-year amortization, closing with an interest rate in the low five percent range.

“The property opened in March 2015. We were patient as the property’s performance got through its first year of operations and gained solid performance through spring 2016. With an excellent T-12 we were in a good place to obtain the requested loan amount of the Borrower,” said Brooks.

With incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico and a superb location on the Intracoastal Waterway, guests are just steps from a marina and close to area beaches. The property’s amenities include a large patio and pool, fitness center and on-site restaurants. Located in the St. Petersburg MSA, the property hosts business and leisure guests year round.
