South Florida industrial portfolio refinanced with $73.35M loan
JLL Capital Markets arranged the loan for the five-property industrial portfolio in Miami and Broward County markets
MORRISTOWN, N.J., Jan. 12, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $73.35 million refinancing for a five-property industrial portfolio totaling 713,481 square feet in high-demand South Florida Industrial markets.
JLL worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, Seagis Property Group LP, to place the 10-year, fixed-rate, interest-only loan through a correspondent life insurance company.
The 12-building portfolio includes Class A and B industrial properties at 8305 NW 27th St. in Doral, 8150 NW 76th St. and 2101 NW 82nd St. in Medley, 3000 NW 125th St. in Miami and the nine-building small-bay Cooper Commerce Center at 2229-12260 SW 53rd and 12323 SW 55th Streets in Cooper City (Broward County). Currently 99 percent occupied, the portfolio is home to 67 tenants with an average occupancy rate of 95 percent since 2011. All buildings are very functional with efficient loading and clear heights ranging from 21 to 24 feet.
The properties are in infill locations within the Miami-Dade and Broward County Industrial markets, two of the strongest industrial markets on the East Coast. According to JLL Research, the Miami-Dade Industrial market is showing little to no signs of slowing down. As vacancy has declined to a low 4.5 percent, asking rates, which during the third quarter of 2021 increased to $8.84 per square foot, are anticipated to continuously break records for the foreseeable future. The Broward County Industrial market tells a similar story with asking rents rising to $9.70 per square foot, as demand is expected to remain robust.
“As industrial real estate in strong in-fill markets backed by top institutional sponsors remains at the top of lenders’ wish list, there was substantial competition to finance this irreplaceable portfolio,” Nalbandian said. “The sponsor took advantage of record-low interest rates while also repatriating a significant amount of equity to use towards future acquisitions.”
