Financing Provides Flexibility for Advisor’s National Portfolio Strategy

JLL secures $150 million portfolio financing for Clarion Partners

HOUSTON, March 23, 2017 – JLL's Capital Markets​ experts today announced the firm secured a $150 million facility loan for a national portfolio of eight commercial properties on behalf of Clarion Partners, in its role as an advisor to a separate account managed by the firm. Wells Fargo provided the seven-year, floating rate loan, which is structured as a cross-defaulted mortgage pool.

The portfolio consists of eight Class A buildings in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Oregon and Texas. The portfolio includes two industrial, three office and two retail assets as well as one hotel.

Executive Managing Director Mike Melody and Senior Vice President John Ream led the JLL team that secured the financing. 

"This is a deal structure which gives the client exceptional flexibility," said Melody. "The facility allows Clarion to substitute assets into the collateral pool in the future as properties are sold or financed individually."

Added Ream, "The varying asset types and multiple locations within the portfolio added a layer of complexity to this financing that shows the full capabilities of our finance platform."
