SEATTLE, January 20, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $30.35 million in acquisition financing for the Commodore Way Portfolio, an industrial site consisting of three buildings and a parking lot totaling 213,000 square feet in Seattle, Washington.

JLL represented the borrower, ScanlanKemperBard Co., to secure the floating-rate bridge loan through a national debt fund.

With the funds, the borrower plans to redevelop the existing buildings into best-in-class industrial warehouse facilities. Capital improvements will include an office buildout, rollup doors, new roofing, updated systems and cosmetic improvement.

The portfolio is located at 2500 W. Jameson St. and 2501, 2421, 2331 W. Commodore Way, well positioned near one of Seattle’s most prominent industrial-field submarkets, which has approximately 7 million square feet of industrial inventory. Additionally, the property sits just four miles from Seattle’s Central Business District, one mile from the Port of Seattle and near the BNSF Railway’s Balmer Yard.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Tom Wilson and Zach Kersten.

“We were very pleased with the options that the capital markets provided on this opportunity,” said Kersten. “We look forward to watching SKB transform this project into a best-in-class facility in a very attractive submarket for tenants.”
