A fund sponsored by CBRE Investment Management closed on a $66.3 million mortgage loan to facilitate Albany Road Real Estate Partners’ acquisition of a 366,000-square-foot office campus in Dallas. The floating rate loan has an initial term of three years and can extend up to an additional two years.

The Class A office and retail campus, known as The Plaza at Solana, spans three separate buildings in Dallas’ Southlake/Westlake submarket. The property includes approximately 345,000 square feet of office space and 21,000 square feet of neighborhood retail, which includes three restaurants and outdoor landscaped greenspace with mature trees and foliage.

“This loan provided our team with an opportunity to lend on a strong-performing office asset in a dynamic and evolving submarket at an attractive basis,”said Nick Ito, Managing Director for CBRE Investment Management.“Albany Road’s demonstrated experience in the market, focused capital improvement plan and strong local submarket fundamentals made this an exceptional investment for our platform. We look forward to financing additional transactions with both JLL and Albany Road Real Estate Partners.”

Cullen Aderhold of JLL arranged the loan on behalf of Albany Road Real Estate Partners.

“JLL did an outstanding job securing the financing for us and we are thrilled to be working with CBRE Investment Management on our acquisition of Solana. They were engaged from the beginning and quickly understood the project and the business plan,” said Merrick Egan, Managing Director for Albany Road.

The Plaza at Solana was recently renovated and was originally designed by award-winning architect Ricardo Legorreta.

Situated at 1301 Solana Boulevard, the property is easily accessible via Texas State Highway 114, which provides excellent access to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the Fort Worth Alliance Airport. In addition to the on-site retail, The Plaza at Solana also benefits from its proximity to major retail amenities just four miles away in Southlake, Texas.
