JLL Arranges $140M Refinancing for Mixed-Use Development Adjacent to Wrigley Field
CHICAGO — JLL has arranged a $140 million loan for the refinancing of Gallagher Way, a recently completed mixed-use development adjacent to Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The project includes more than 93,000 square feet of office space, 85,100 square feet of retail space, the 173-room Hotel Zachary and an 8,000-square-foot open-air entertainment plaza. Office tenants include American Airlines and the Chicago Cubs. Danny Kaufman, Christopher Knight, Jeff Bucaro and Nicole Aguiar of JLL arranged the 30-year, fixed-rate loan on behalf of the borrower, Hickory Street Capital, the real estate arm of the Ricketts family. Barings, an international investment management firm owned by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co., provided the loan, proceeds of which will replace the construction financing arranged by the same capital markets team in 2016. The Ricketts family owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team.
