Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $42,975,200 first mortgage loan secured by Waterside Marketplace, a 291,231 square foot retail center in Chesterfield, MI, 25 miles north of downtown Detroit.

Grandbridge Mobile, AL-based Vice President Gerry Robbins originated the acquisition transaction. The loan, funded through one of Grandbridge’s correspondent lenders, was structured a 3-year term and 25-year amortization and closed with an interest rate in the low 4% range.

“Center anchors include Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy, TJ Maxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ulta, Jo Ann Fabrics, Old Navy, DSW, Five Below, Party City, JC Penney and Lowe’s Home Improvement,” said Robbins. “The property is situated adjacent to Interstate 94, providing outstanding access to both a local and regional customer base and affords tenants the ability to draw consumers from several communities in the northeast Detroit suburbs.”
