Grandbridge Arranges $25.38 Million Georgia Multifamily Refinance

Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $25,388,000 first mortgage loan secured by Capella Apartments, a 320-unit multifamily community in Tucker, Ga.

Grandbridge Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie originated the refinance for a repeat client. The permanent, floating rate loan was funded through Freddie Mac. The nonrecourse financing was structured with an initial period of interest-only, a 10-year term and 30-year amortization.

“The Capella Apartments transaction was a refinance of a property that Grandbridge financed approximately two years ago for the original acquisition. The sponsors were successful in executing their business plan, creating significant value. The refinance allows the sponsors to recapitalize their investment, while also enabling them to enter into Freddie Mac’s Green Advantage program for specific upgrades that will create efficiencies with energy and water consumption at the property,” Tapie said.
