Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $110 million financing of a portfolio comprising six grocery-anchored retail properties totaling 876,153 square feet in Georgia, Florida and Tennessee.
The HFF team worked on behalf of Branch Retail Partners, L.P. and its affiliate Branch Properties, LLC to place the $110 million, seven-year, fixed-rate loan with one of HFF’s life insurance company correspondent lenders.
The portfolio consists of six grocery-anchored properties located throughout the southeastern United States and anchored by Publix, Kroger and Whole Foods. The portfolio boasts excellent locations in high-growth markets in Georgia, Florida and Tennessee and received considerable interest from the lending community due to its strong financial performance.
The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower included senior director Chip Sykes and analyst James Clingman.
“We are thrilled to have arranged this financing with one of our strongest insurance company correspondent lenders on behalf of our valued client, Branch Properties,” Sykes said. “Branch had not previously worked with this particular lender and we hope this deal will mark the beginning of a long and productive relationship between them.”
