Grandbridge Real Estate Capital recently closed a $30,500,000 first mortgage loan secured by a 124-unit, Class A property in Minneapolis, Minn. The financing was originated by Minneapolis-based Vice President Matt Halberg.
The loan was funded through Grandbridge’s exclusive balance sheet lending platform, BB&T Real Estate Funding (BBTREF). This nonrecourse refinance featured a seven-year term with three years of interest-only followed by a 30-year amortization, closing with a fixed interest rate in the mid four percent range.
BB&T Real Estate Funding (BBTREF), a wholly owned subsidiary of Grandbridge Real Estate Capital, offers both fixed and floating rate nonrecourse loan products for all major property types across the United States.
The combination of BBTREF's responsiveness, reliability, structuring capabilities and pricing, combined with Grandbridge’s knowledgeable professionals, makes it one of the strongest, most competitive nonrecourse lending products in the market. BBTREF’s permanent, fixed rate loan program offers some of the most attractive prepayment flexibility in the market by allowing its loans to be prepaid halfway through the loan term for only a 0.5% exit fee.
The property was developed by Curt Gunsbury of Solhem Companies and was 100 percent leased within three months of construction completion, a testament to the product Gunsbury creates and the property’s premier Minneapolis North Loop location. A vibrant, walkable community, the North Loop is home to many popular restaurants and shops. In the past few years the North Loop has become one of the most highly desired residential neighborhoods in the Twin Cities. The property features a high-end amenity package that includes: a fitness center, yoga room, rooftop deck, underground parking, and community lounge.
