ORLANDO, Jan. 12, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $13.2 million in financing for Celebration Business Center, a two-building office property totaling 106,068 square feet in Celebration, Florida.

Working on behalf of Denholtz Properties, JLL placed the seven-year, fixed-rate acquisition loan through National Life Group. JLL was also involved of the sale of the property to Denholtz Properties.

Celebration Business Center comprises two single-story buildings that offer unique, flexible floorplates for office, medical office and creative office tenants. Completed in 1997, Celebration Business Center is 82% leased to a mix of local and national tenants and is anchored by Walt Disney World.

The properties are positioned on 9.12 acres at 1120 and 1130 Celebration Blvd. in the Tourist Corridor submarket of Orlando. The master-planned community of Celebration was developed in the 1990’s and is one of the most successful in the state, boasting a live-work-play community with top-rated schools, golf courses, walking trails, community centers and numerous retail shops, cafes and restaurants. In addition, the property is close to two heavily trafficked interstates, The Greenway and Interstate 4, providing regional access throughout the Orlando MSA and beyond.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower consisted of Director Maxx Carney and Senior Managing Directors Michael Klein and Jon Mikula.

“We’re pleased to have advised Denholtz Properties on the acquisition financing for Celebration Business Center as the firm continues to expand its’ already substantial presence within the state of Florida,” Carney said. “The firms’ acumen in acquiring strategically located office assets such as Celebration Business Center is reflected in the significant interest we were able to generate in debt capital markets on their behalf.”
