Grandbridge Arranges $41.43 Million Atlanta Multifamily Acquisition

Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $41,433,000 first mortgage loan secured by Collier Ridge Apartments, a 300-unit multifamily community in Atlanta, Ga.

Grandbridge Atlanta-based Senior Vice President Alan Tapie and Assistant Vice President Thomas Wiedeman originated the acquisition.

“The floating rate loan was funded through Freddie Mac's Value-Add multifamily loan product, enabling us to structure the nonrecourse financing with 36 months of interest-only, and two, 12-month extensions. The structure was negotiated to accommodate the client’s upgrade plan,” stated Tapie. The transaction closed with an attractive interest rate and prepayment flexibility after the first year.”

“The property was purchased by a repeat Grandbridge client. Grandbridge and Freddie Mac worked together to complete value-add transaction at a maximum of 85 percent LTV. The deal also qualified for Green Up  SM, one of Freddie Mac’s Green Advantage options, as numerous energy saving aspects were being implemented into the upgrade of the property,” Tapie said.

Property amenities include a fitness center, swimming pool, leasing center/clubhouse, dog park and tennis courts.
