$84.3M in financing secured for 6-property industrial portfolio
JLL Capital Markets arranged senior financing for MDH Partners’ acquisition of the portfolio located throughout the Sunbelt
MIAMI, November 11, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $84.3 million in post-acquisition financing for a six-property industrial portfolio totaling 1.58 million square feet throughout the Sunbelt with assets located in Miami, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Greensboro, North Carolina; Memphis, Tennessee; and Phoenix, Arizona, markets.
JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, MDH Partners, to place the five-year, floating-rate loan with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
The borrower acquired the portfolio properties in separate transactions throughout the year. The portfolio comprises two Florida properties, 1350 NW 74th St. in Miami and 3115-3165 Lakewood Ranch Blvd. in Bradenton, along with 5300 Kennedy Rd. in Forest Park (Atlanta MSA); 404, 420 A&B N. Chimney Rd. in Greensboro; 4565 W. Watkins St. in Phoenix; and 3527-3539, 3543 Lamar Ave. in Memphis. The well diversified portfolio is home to more than 30 local, regional and national tenants and located within high-performing industrial markets with robust tenant demand, demonstrated by limited vacancy rates and substantial 12-month net absorption.
The JLL Capital Markets Debt Placement team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Christopher Drew, Director Maxx Carney and Associate Reid Carleton, along with Senior Managing Director Ed Coco and Director Carl Beardsley.
“The portfolio received significant lender interest, which is a testament to exceptional strength of the sponsorship and the markets’ demand for industrial financing opportunities,” Drew said. “We are honored to have advised MDH Partners on this transaction.”
“The capitalization of this portfolio is a prime example of how industrial assets and exceptional borrowers continue to command superior interest from debt capital providers in a fragmented capital markets environment,” Carney added.
MDH Partner’s CFO, Arun Singh said, “This new portfolio enhances MDH’s platform with great tenant diversity, long leases and expanding MDH’s reach to Central Florida. We are delighted with JLL’s financing execution, especially given uncertain market conditions. We wanted to evaluate multiple loan structures and were impressed with the final outcome.”
