Grandbridge Secures $35.8M Refinancing Through Freddie Mac for Student Housing Property in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA — Grandbridge Real Estate Capital has secured a $35.8 million refinancing for The Edge, a 602-unit, purpose-built student housing property near Temple University in Philadelphia. Gill Dolan and Blake Willeford of Grandbridge arranged the floating-rate, first mortgage loan for the undisclosed borrower through Freddie Mac. The financing was structured with an initial period of interest-only payments, followed by a 10-year term and 30-year amortization. The borrower requested a floating-rate loan to facilitate the refinancing of the existing CMBS mortgage, according to Grandbridge Vice President Gill Dolan. Built in 2006, the property is situated on a 1.7-acre site just south of Temple University’s main campus. The 12-story student housing community contains 1,067 beds across 602 units. Amenities include a two-story fitness center, study rooms, grilling stations and on-site laundry facilities.
