Frontera Real Estate has received $10.5 million in refinancing for A-Storage-Place Palm, a 96,082-square-foot facility in Riverside, Calif. Transamerica Life Insurance Co. provided the 15-year loan, Riverside County records show.
According to Yardi Matrix data, the recently built property was previously subject to a construction loan of $7.9 million, originated by Western Alliance Bank.
