JLL secures $57.5 million in acquisition financing for Gateway Plaza in Richmond, Virginia

RICHMOND, VA, Feb. 24 2016 – JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured, on behalf of an affiliate of Lexington Realty Trust, $57.5 million in acquisition financing for Gateway Plaza, a 330,000-square-foot office and retail property located in Richmond, Virginia. An undisclosed lender provided the 15-year, interest-only loan.

Managing Director Dustin Stolly, Senior Vice President Jonathan Paine and Vice President Aaron Niedermayer led the JLL team on the transaction while Executive Vice President Mike Yavinsky provided local market expertise.
“New office product, owned by best-in-class sponsorship, continues to attract large swaths of low-cost and efficient debt capital,” said Stolly.
Added Paine, “Gateway Plaza is Richmond’s premier office property, simultaneously boasting high-quality tenancy and growth opportunities through large blocks of contiguous space.”
The 18-story trophy property was completed in August 2015 and features state-of-the-art finishes and panoramic views of downtown Richmond and the James River. Additional on-site amenities include 202 tenant-reserved parking spaces, valet parking, and car wash and concierge services.
