Mag Mile Capital Completes $3.8 Million Acquisition Loan for R&R Global Partners’ Fedex Distribution Center in Flint, Michigan
CHICAGO – Mag Mile Capital is pleased to announce it has completed a $3,800,000, seven-year fixed rate, 80% LTV acquisition loan on behalf of repeat client Bryan Rishforth and Philadelphia-based firm, R&R Global Partners. Located adjacent to Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, the 57,500 square foot distribution facility is 100% leased to FedEx Corporation (NYSE: FDX), which has occupied the property since it was constructed as a build-to-suit more than 20 years ago.
“Given R&R Global Partners’ mandate for a highly competitive rate, low fees, leverage and asset flexibility during the term of the loan, we knew it would be critical to present this request to lots of lenders. Our network, combined with the quality of the tenant and R&R Global Partners’ track record of managing institutional-quality real estate, allowed us to get the loan closed quickly and with the desired mix of leverage, rate, and prepay flexibility,” said CEO of Mag Mile Capital, Rushi Shah.
R&R Global Partners sourced the acquisition through Stan Johnson Co., which marketed the property on behalf of the seller. After a successful closing with Mag Mile in October of 2019 for a property in Lincolnwood, Illinois, that is fully occupied by Planet Fitness (NYSE: PLNT) and Walmart’s (NYSE: WMT) first dedicated full-scale grocery pick-up location, R&R approached Mag Mile while considering the Flint purchase to better understand where the local market might be for a loan.
“FedEx distribution centers are internet-proof and future-proof, which are key investment criteria for us, making them highly valued. We negotiated a favorable purchase price, and we were confident Mag Mile would deliver an excellent set of terms notwithstanding COVID-related credit market challenges,” said Rishforth. “The Mag Mile team has delivered excellent loan terms for us twice in the last year, and we look forward to growing our mutually beneficial relationship.”
