April 15, 2020

MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 15, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $18.6 million in financing for the acquisition of Thompson Center Waters, a nine-building flex property with light industrial and office space totaling 225,651 square feet in Tampa, Florida.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Denholtz Properties, to place the seven-year, fixed-rate loan with a regional bank.

Completed between 1986 and 1990, Thompson Center Waters features nine one-story buildings with 12-foot clear heights, 25 grade-level loading dock, ample parking ratio and high office finish of 87%. The buildings are situated on 19.97 acres at 5455, 5461, 5463, 5481, 5501, 5503, 5553, 5555 and 5557 W. Waters at the intersection between West Waters Avenue (State Route 584) and Anderson Road. The property is in the Westshore/Airport Flex Industrial submarket, which has a vacancy of just 4.1%, and is approximately seven miles from Tampa International Airport.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Directors Michael Klein and Jon Mikula, Director Maxx Carney and Analyst Carlos Silva.

“JLL is pleased to have worked with Denholtz Properties once again and to have helped them add to their growing portfolio of industrial, office and light industrial properties in the Tampa region with this acquisition financing,” Klein said. 

“The bank quickly recognized the Denholtz team’s expertise in managing properties with small and mid-sized businesses from a wide range of industries, understood the strength of the market and was able to provide attractive deal terms that best met the borrower’s needs,” Klein added. “The bank was also able to flawlessly close within a condensed closing time frame.”
