CBRE Arranged the Loan to Refinance Phase I of Bridge Industrial’s Largest Business Park in South Florida
MIAMI, FL – (December 17, 2021) – Bridge Industrial (“Bridge”), a privately-owned, vertically integrated real estate operating company and investment manager, today announced it has secured a long-term, fixed-rate loan to refinance Phase I of its Bridge Point Commerce Center in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Delivered in January, Phase I of the Class-A industrial park consists of three buildings totaling 1.1 million square feet of space that is nearly fully leased at 97 percent to notable tenants including CITY Furniture and HapCor, among others. Construction is underway on Phase II of the project, which encompasses two buildings, totaling 1.5 million square feet and is on schedule to be delivered in early 2023.
The loan was issued by Hartford Investment Management Company and secured by Steve Roth of CBRE’s Debt & Structured Finance team. Loan proceeds will be used to retire an existing construction loan with a floating rate.
“Modern, last-mile logistics centers like Bridge Point Commerce Center continue to outperform the market,” said Kevin Carroll, Partner, Southeast Region of Bridge Industrial. “We are pleased to have been able to take advantage of historically low interest rates and lock into an extremely attractive fixed rate.”
Strategically located between Miami-Dade and Broward Counties on a 185-acre site at 4310 NW 215th Street, Bridge Point Commerce Center offers Florida Turnpike frontage with 155,310 cars passing per day. Divisible to 40,000 square feet, the first two buildings in Phase I are 286,991 square feet with 32’ clear ceiling heights and the third is a 534,816-square-foot, cross-dock facility with 36’ clear ceiling heights.
