NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 1, 2023 –  JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $29.5 million in financing for Whitehall Tech Center, a three-building, industrial business park totalling 279,150 square feet in Charlotte, North Carolina.

JLL represented the borrower, CIP Real Estate, in securing the three-year floating-rate loan through a life insurance company.

Whitehall Tech Center is comprised of three buildings — Whitehall I, II and III. Whitehall I and II are multi-tenant, mid-bay industrial buildings totalling 204,900 square feet. Whitehall III is a to-be-built, 74,250-square-foot building that is projected to break ground in Q2 2023. The buildings will have a combined 493 parking stalls, clear heights ranging from 20 to 28 feet and 57 dock-high doors.

Situated on 26.7 acres, the properties are located at 2745, 2915 and 2705 Whitehall Drive in Charlotte’s Southwest industrial submarket. This submarket is one of the most sought-after and prestigious institutionally owned industrial submarkets in the Carolinas. Bisected by I-77 and located along the I-485 beltway, the Southwest market is advantageously positioned to provide users a touchpoint to the fundamentally stable Charlotte economy and its world-class logistics infrastructure.

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team representing the borrower was led by Executive Managing Director Kevin MacKenzie and Senior Directors Peter Thompson and Taylor Alison.
