Grandbridge Facilitates $37.38 Million in Alabama Industrial Property Loans
Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently facilitated the closing of a $13,100,000 first mortgage loan secured by I-10 Business Park, an industrial/bulk warehouse complex in Loxley, AL. The permanent, fixed rate loan was originated by Birmingham, AL-based Senior Vice President William Silsbee for a repeat client and funded through one of Grandbridge’s insurance company correspondents. “The distribution/warehouse complex was built between 1997 and 2008, and features seven, one-story buildings totaling 977,520 square feet of rentable space,” said Silsbee.
Silsbee also originated a $12,780,000 first mortgage loan secured by Oxmoor South, a 528,428 square foot warehouse/industrial property in Birmingham. The permanent, fixed rate loan was funded through one of Grandbridge’s insurance company correspondents. “The property is functionally desirable as a warehouse/distribution space. It features 27-foot ceilings, multiple loading capacities, reinforced five-inch concrete floors and tilt-up concrete walls,” said Silsbee.
The $11,500,000 first mortgage refinance of Distribution Center was another Silsbee-originated warehouse/industrial transaction. Located in Birmingham, the 515,000 square foot facility was also funded through one of Grandbridge’s insurance company correspondent relationships.
