Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $3,500,000 first mortgage loan secured by Club Space Building, a 28,000 square foot, single tenant retail building in Miami, Fla.
The permanent, fixed rate transaction was originated by Grandbridge Miami-based Senior Vice President Philip Carroll and underwritten by Adrian Rahimi. The loan was funded through one of Grandbridge’s banking relationships and featured a five-year term and 25-year amortization.
“The challenge was obtaining financing from a lender who was comfortable with a single tenant asset occupied by a bar/dance club. The property's excellent location in the direct path of future development, right next to the Miami World Center development in the Parkwest district, was a big part in the lender's decision to move forward with the loan. After polling many lenders, we were able to structure a loan that satisfied the owner's desire to refinance and increase the existing loan with a low fixed rate," said Carroll.
