Mesa West Capital Provides $56.8 MM Loan for Acquisition of W. Palm Beach Office Building
MESA WEST PROVIDES $56.8 MILLION LOAN TO FINANCE ACQUISITION OF CLASS A OFFICE BUILDING IN WEST PALM BEACH, FL
Mesa West Capital's New York office has originated a $56.8 million first mortgage loan to 515 N. Flagler Drive Owner LLC for the acquisition, renovation and stabilization of Northbridge Centre, a Class A office building in West Palm Beach, FL.
The sponsor acquired the 287,000-square-
The property was 71 percent leased at closing.
The floating rate loan allows the operator to leverage the acquisition and includes a future funding component to be used towards leasing costs associated with stabilizing the property, according to Vice President Russell Frahm, who covers the southeast for Mesa West.
"Downtown West Palm Beach is one of the most institutional and accessible office markets in the Southeast," said Frahm. "Increased demand and a lack of new supply have resulted in a steady increase in rents and occupancy which we expect to continue over the next several years. The sponsor acquired a quality asset at a cost basis far below that of competing product, and our financing will allow ownership to implement its business plan to capitalize on the improving market."
