BridgeInvest, a direct CRE private lender, funded a $3.5 MM refinance bridge loan secured by a 148,000 square foot industrial facility located in Kannapolis, North Carolina, a suburb north of Charlotte. The Borrower/Sponsor will use the cash out loan proceeds to pay off existing loans and prepare the asset for sale. The property was vacant and not cash flowing. It was most recently used as an FDA-approved pharmaceutical manufacturing plant with clean-laboratory, office and warehouse space. The high-spec equipment is a huge benefit and value-add. The sponsor was a business owner with limited commercial real estate experience. However, we looked past that, and the loan was structured based upon the real estate collateral only. BridgeInvest executed and closed the transaction in a few weeks to meet the sponsor’s needs. This commercial property bridge loan was funded in March 2021.

Bridge Loan for North Carolina Retail Shopping Center Acquisition
Archway Fund recently closed a $5,025,000 bridge loan for the acquisition of a retail center located in Gastonia, a city east of Charlotte, North Carolina. Our loan was 75% of the $6,700,000 purchase price. The property is 94% occupied and anchored by a large grocery store. We were able to provide a quick closing to accommodate the purchase through auction and bridge the gap until they can secure traditional financing. One of the challenges with this transaction is the anchor tenant recently went through a bankruptcy and restructure. We were able to get comfortable with the tenant and moved forward to close the loan in a timely manner.
