Granbridge closes $31.9 million first mortgage; CBRE sells a 304-unit student-housing community; and HFF closes sale of suburban apartment property.

Camden Heights Apartments

Houston—Granbridge Real Estate Capital’s office in Houston has closed a $31,875,000 first mortgage loan secured by Camden Heights Apartments, a 352-unit, Class ‘A’ multifamily property in Houston. The seven-year acquisition loan features three years of interest-only and a 30-year amortization. Jim Richard, a Houston-based SVP, originated the transaction, which was funded through Fannie Mae’s DUS loan product.

“Our client needed a quick close on this transaction,” says Richards. “Granbridge had to approve, underwrite and close this loan within 30 days. In order to do that, we had to fully quantify the market and rent comps.”

Camden Heights Apartments, which is located in Houston’s Midtown Height neighborhood, is comprised of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The property has a resort-style swimming pool, clubhouse with social lounge, modern business center and an athletic club.
