PHOENIX, AZ – Gantry, the largest independent commercial mortgage banking firm in the U.S., has arranged $6,500,000 in financing for the acquisition of ~30 acres of land located in Phoenix, AZ just north of the Deer Valley Airport. The subject property did have an income stream as the land was being leased to 17 tenants for storage purposes. All but one of the leases was short-term in nature which aligned with the buyer’s business plan. The buyer/borrower was purchasing the land to eventually develop a ~392,000 SF industrial warehouse asset in the future.
Adam Parker, Principal, and Chad Metzger, Associate Vice President, arranged this acquisition loan through a regional bank. The bank offered attractive loan terms as it was interested in making a construction loan to the sponsor when they are ready to develop the industrial warehouse buildings.
