JLL secures $64.4 million in permanent financing for General Electric @ The Banks


CINCINNATI, Nov. 1, 2016 – Capital is freeing up as investors look to take advantage of downtown Cincinnati's revitalization efforts. On behalf of 90 North Real Estate Partners and KAMCO, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm secured $64.4 million in permanent financing for the acquisition of General Electric @ The Banks, a 338,146-square-foot build-to-suit Class A office tower in downtown Cincinnati. Principal Real Estate Investors provided the loan.

Managing Director Keith Largay and Vice President Fiorentina Malko led JLL's financing efforts.

"This financing allows our client to acquire a top-flight asset within one of Cincinnati's premier master-planned communities," said Largay. "With stable, credit-worthy tenancy and the high-growth potential of the area, General Electric @ The Banks is truly one of the city's most coveted office assets."

The building is located within The Banks, a master-planned community that features hotel, retail, residential and office spaces along the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati. It is flanked by Paul Brown Stadium and Great American Ballpark, home to the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals and the MLB's Cincinnati Reds.
