JACKSONVILLE, April 13, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $20.1 million refinancing for One Deerwood, a 161,167-square-foot, Class A office building in Jacksonville, Florida.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, an affiliate of Boston-based Taurus Investment Holdings, LLC, to secure the three-year, floating-rate bridge loan with Prime Finance.  

One Deerwood is located at 10201 Centurion Parkway within Jacksonville’s prestigious Butler/Baymeadows submarket. The property has a highly visible and accessible location near the interchange of J Turner Butler Boulevard/Route 202 and Southside Boulevard and is surrounded by a robust amenity base, including St. Johns Town Center. Renovated in 2017, the six-story building is 88% leased.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower included Senior Directors Porter Terry and Tarik Bateh.

“The closing took place in the midst of the current unrest in the financial markets and both Taurus and Prime worked diligently through those challenges to get the transaction closed,” Terry said.  

“Having both a best-in-class and cycle-tested borrower and lender allowed JLL to close a transaction in an extremely challenging environment,” Bateh added.
