Grandbridge Real Estate Capital has originated and closed a more than $63.2 million fixed-rate loan secured by Murray Business Center, a 332,000-square-foot suburban office building located in Beaverton. Funding for the transaction was provided by TIAA-CREF. The loan was made at 98 percent of appraised value with an interest rate of 5.61 percent fixed for the entire 21.3-year loan term. The transaction features an initial 39-month interest-only component with negative amortization, which converts to an 18-year amortization. Rob Meister of Charlotte, N.C.-based Grandbridge, a subsidiary of BB&T Corp., arranged the financing on behalf of a long-time client. The main tenant at Murray Business Center currently occupies 72 percent of the property with an unrelated, non-credit tenant occupying the remaining portion of the property until September 30, 2013, at which time the main tenant takes over the entire building.
