JLL arranges $9.35M financing for Pennsylvania industrial portfolio

Foxfield Industrial completes construction of and finances the bulk warehouse distribution facility in Elizabethtown 

May 13, 2020

PHILADELPHIA, May 13, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $9.3 million first mortgage financing for two newly completed and partially leased Class A bulk warehouse distribution facilities totaling 198,721 square feet in the central Pennsylvania community of Elizabethtown.  

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Foxfield Industrial, to place the floating-rate bank loan. Loan proceeds will primarily be used to recapitalize construction costs and provide leverage through stabilization.

Situated on 20.34 acres, the industrial portfolio is located at 1405 and 1473 Zeager Rd. in Elizabethtown. The buildings are in the Central Pennsylvania Industrial submarket in an area that is an established modal transfer point, as highways, railroads and air traffic come together to provide easy, quick and reliable access to all the major Northeast markets. The Zeager Road buildings are at the confluence of Interstates 81, 76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike), 78 and 83, which are four of the busiest regional highways in

Pennsylvania, and have immediate access to Interstate 81, one of the most important logistical corridors in the United States. Completed in 2019, the state-of-the-art buildings feature single-side load configurations, 21 dock doors (expandable by 10), concrete tilt-up construction, 32-foot clear heights at the first column, LED lighting and four drive-in doors.

The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team was led by Director Michael Pagniucci.

“The strong lender interest in this financing opportunity is a testament to both the sponsorship involved and the strength of industrial as an asset class,” Pagniucci said.
