Grandbridge Facilitates $23 Million Florida Multifamily Refinance

Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $23,000,000 first mortgage loan secured by Azul at Baldwin Park, a 178-unit Class A luxury multifamily community in Orlando, Fla.

“The luxury resort-style property is located within Baldwin Park, an 1,100-acre Orlando development which is home to 8,000 residents, more than 125 businesses and over 200 acres of parks and lakes.
