JLL secures $36.35M loan for acquisition of Boston warehouse portfolio

BOSTON, March 21, 2018 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the company has secured a $36.35 million, 10-year loan from a life insurance company to finance the purchase of a two-building industrial portfolio in suburban Boston. The loan was secured for Dallas-based L&B Realty Advisors, LLP, which acquired the industrial portfolio on behalf of an institutional client.

Senior Vice President Robert Borden and Executive Vice President Heather Brown led the JLL team handling the financing transaction.

The 775,000-square- foot portfolio consists of two 32-foot clear height warehouse distribution buildings in Massachusetts.  They are: 1 Distribution Center Circle in Littleton, and 154 Campanelli Drive in Middleborough.  Both buildings are 100 percent leased, with the 275,000-suqare-foot Middleborough property occupied by a single tenant. The 480,000-square-foot Littleton property is fully leased to six tenants.

"This fixed-rate financing is backed by fully-leased, Class A buildings with secure and durable rent rolls in a fundamentally solid industrial market and was secured on behalf of an exceptionally strong institutional sponsor," said Borden. "After assessing several competitive proposals, the life insurance company was able to provide the most compelling long term financing package for the asset."
