CBRE ARRANGES $58M LOAN FOR HINES’ ACQUISITION OF FORT WORTH OFFICE TOWER
FORT WORTH — CBRE has arranged $58 million in financing for Chesapeake Plaza, a 20-story, Class A office building in Fort Worth. CBRE worked on behalf of the borrower, Hines, while BBVA Compass provided the floating-rate loan. Chesapeake Plaza is a 460,000-square-foot office building with on-site amenities including a gym, café and dining area. The property was built in 2004 as the corporate headquarters for Pier 1 Imports. The seller, Chesapeake Energy, bought the building in 2008 during a time it acquired interests in the Barnett Shale. As part of the sale, the property will be renamed the Pier 1 Imports Building. Greg Greene and Scott Lewis with CBRE’s Dallas office worked on the loan.
