Gantry (formerly Newmark Realty Capital, Inc.), the largest independent commercial mortgage banking firm in the U.S., has arranged $17.80 million of permanent financing for Central Business Park (“CBP”), a 500,000-square-foot industrial property located in the heart of the Spokane Valley in Eastern Washington.
Demetri Koston, Principal with Gantry’s Spokane office, and Skip Slavin based in Gantry’s Seattle office worked together to source the financing on behalf of the borrower. The loan was placed with one of Gantry’s life insurance company lenders. The borrower had a unique set of objectives including locking the rate for a long period to take advantage of the historic lows in the cost of capital, help maintain cash flow after debt service, and provide maximum loan flexibility. Gantry worked with the lender to deliver to the borrower’s specs, all on a non-recourse basis, with no structure or reserves.
