Grandbridge Arranges $19.5 Million Tampa Multifamily Refinance
Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $19,500,000 first mortgage loan secured by The Park at Ravenna Apartments in Tampa, Fla.
Grandbridge Senior Vice President Mike Ortlip originated the refinance loan for a repeat client. The permanent, floating rate loan was arranged through Freddie Mac’s Capital Markets Execution (CME) loan product.
“The floating rate loan was funded through Freddie Mac's standard delivery multifamily loan product, enabling us to structure the nonrecourse financing with terms that accommodated the client’s continued upgrade plan,” stated Ortlip. “The transaction closed with an attractive interest rate and prepayment flexibility.”
Renovated in 2016, the 300-unit multifamily community is comprised of 20 two- and three-story buildings. The property, approximately four miles from the main campus of the University of South Florida (USF), features two swimming pools, a dog park and a fitness center.
