CBRE | Melody Arranges $20 Million in Acquisition Financing for Alabama Condo
January 20, 2006 (Gulf Shores, AL) – The CBRE | Melody Denver office announced that it has
arranged financing in the amount of $20 million for the acquisition and condominium
conversion of Eagles Landing in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Eric Tupler, senior director, of CBRE |
Melody’s Denver office and Mark Gibson, vice president, of CBRE | Melody’s Jacksonville office
secured the funding for this transaction through a Mid-west based national Bank. Terms of the
financing include a 24-month interest-only loan, with a 12-month extension option, at a floating
rate of 2.35% over LIBOR.
A senior mortgage of $18,000,000 was funded at closing with an additional $2,000,000 to be
advanced as certain condominium sales targets are accomplished. The loan represented
approximately 85% of the total cost.
Constructed in 1997, Eagles Landing consists of 168 units with a total net rentable area of
174,840 square feet within 21 two-story buildings. At the time of financing, Eagles Landing was
95% leased. Above-standard amenities at the gated-access community include a 24-hour
fitness center, lighted tennis court, resort style pool and spa, community grill, and playground.
Interior improvements include granite countertops, stone tile floors and new kitchen packages.
The acquisition of Eagles Landing was made by Sagebrush Development Company, a Denver
based real estate development firm that specializes in multi-family residential projects. Eagles
Landing, now known as the Colony Club at Drake’s Landing, represents the third condominium
conversion project undertaken by Sagebrush Development in the past 12 months.
Condominium sales will begin in February.
