JLL secures $130M post-acquisition loan for industrial portfolio

January 07, 2020

DENVER, January 7, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $130 million in post-acquisition financing for a 22-building logistics portfolio totaling 3.78 million square feet of industrial space with properties in and around Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Louisville and Cincinnati.

JLL worked on behalf of a U.S. subsidiary of a publicly traded Canadian real estate company to place the 10-year, 3.10% fixed-rate loan with a national balance sheet lender. Loan proceeds will be used to place debt on the portfolio as it was purchased all cash earlier in the year.

The portfolio features quality industrial assets built between 1966 and 2016 and located in strong, infill locations across major markets in the midwestern United States. The locations provide ideal access to major highways, intermodals and air cargo distribution hubs. The portfolio is approximately 90% leased to 52 tenants. 

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Placement team representing the borrower included Senior Director Kristian Lichtenfels, Senior Managing Director Eric Tupler, Managing Director Matthew Schoenfeldt and Senior Managing Director Ken Martin.
