Raleigh-Durham’s Research Hub Draws Lenders

JLL secures $76M loan for Lenovo Enterprise Campus


CHICAGO, March 3, 2015 – On behalf of a joint venture between U.K.-based 90 North Real Estate Partners LLP and Dubai-based Arzan Wealth, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured $76.2 million in acquisition financing for the Lenovo Enterprise Campus.  The Lenovo campus is comprised of three office properties located in Raleigh-Durham’s renowned Research Triangle Park. PNC Bank provided the acquisition loan, which adhered to Shari’ah-compliant financing standards.
Managing Directors David Hendrickson and Keith Largay and Vice President Fiorentina Malko led the JLL team on the financing transaction.
The loan closed following the campus’ acquisition by 90 North Real Estate Partners, led by Dan Cooper, Partner and Head of the firm’s North American operations.
“We’re seeing more lenders seek opportunities and yields in secondary markets, and this serves as a testament to the strength of the debt capital markets,” said Largay. “Two of the properties just received significant, high-tech renovations and the third is currently under construction and set to feature state-of-the-art research facilities – all of which drove lender interest.”
The Lenovo Enterprise Campus serves as the headquarters of Lenovo’s Enterprise Server Division and is comprised of three office buildings: two office buildings totaling 445,484 square feet and a 39,952 square foot mixed-use office / laboratory building currently under construction. The property operates under a single tenant NNN lease.
