HFF arranges $180M credit facility on behalf of a programmatic joint venture between Bixby Land Co. and an institutional partner

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – December 19, 2018 – HFF announces that it has arranged a $180 million credit facility on behalf of a programmatic joint venture between Bixby Land Co. and an institutional partner.  The initial closing of $48.875 million was used to finance a four-building, Class A industrial portfolio totaling 982,493 square feet in San Bernardino and Sacramento, California, and Phoenix, Arizona.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the partnership it previously assisted in forming, whose strategy is to acquire core and core-plus industrial properties throughout the Western U.S.  The seven-year, full-term, interest-only facility was arranged with a correspondent life insurance company and provides the partnership the ability to add assets for up to 24 months and the flexibility to fix or float the interest rate.  In addition, it has various attractive features, including flexible prepayment, substitution and release provisions.  HFF will service the facility and the remaining capacity will be used to acquire additional industrial properties throughout the Western U.S.

The initial assets comprise two California and two Phoenix, Arizona, properties. The California properties are the 104,500-square-foot, Class A property at 19949 Kendall Drive in San Bernardino and the 387,420-square-foot building located at 3510 Carlin Drive in West Sacramento.  The Phoenix properties consist of Canal Crossing Logistics Center, a 155,114-square-foot building at 5670 South 32nd Street, and Riverside@ 51st Avenue, a 335,459-square-foot building at 2300 South 51st Avenue.
