BINGHAM FARMS, MICH. AND NEW YORK CITY — Newmark has arranged $240 million in joint venture financing on behalf of Bingham Farms-based Burton-Katzman and New York City-based DRA Advisors for the recapitalization of 24 light industrial properties in the Midwest. The portfolio totals more than 2.2 million square feet and is 99 percent leased. With over 40 tenants on the rent roll, no tenant occupies more than 15 percent of the portfolio’s total square footage.

Roeschlaub, Stolly and colleague Chris Kramer arranged a $150 million acquisition loan. Burton-Katzman is a fully integrated real estate company with an emphasis on the industrial market.
