Gantry has arranged permanent financing in the amount of $6,600,000 secured by an Albertson’s-anchored retail center located in Liberty Lake, WA. Demetri Koston and Skip Slavin, Vice Presidents for Gantry, worked on behalf of the Borrower, to arrange the 10-year fixed rate term.
While grocery-anchored retail is highly desirable security in the debt markets, this particular transaction posed some significant financing challenges; the anchor’s (Albertson’s) credit-related concerns and the market size was a limiting factor. However, strong operating history and experienced sponsorship worked in the Borrower’s favor, and Gantry identified various options and programs to best meet the Borrower’s objectives.
