Grandbridge Arranges $15.2 Million Orlando Retail/Office Refi
Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $15.2 million first mortgage loan secured by Waterford Park, an unanchored mixed-use retail/office center, located in Orlando, Florida.
Grandbridge Greenville, S.C., office co-managers Bill Mattice and Phillip Cox originated the transaction on behalf of a long-term, repeat client.
The permanent, fixed rate refinance loan was funded through one of Grandbridge’s insurance company correspondents and structured with a 20-year fixed rate term and 20-year amortization.
The 108,599 square foot, Class A property is a two-story, multi-tenant office/retail building in the robust West University submarket of Orlando. The borrower acquired the property in 2012 and has a strong track record of purchasing, re-modeling, re-branding, and re-leasing under-performing retail centers. They have executed their business plan and upgraded the tenant mix to include Bonefish Grill, BB&T, Florida Radiology and Mini ER, Orange Theory Fitness, and Keller Williams, and current occupancy is up to 94%.
