$57 million financing for 1.4 million-square-foot manufacturing facility in Southern California arranged by HFF
LOS ANGELES, CA – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has arranged $57 million in senior financing for Century Business Center, a seven-building, 100-percent-leased industrial manufacturing facility totaling 1.4 million square feet in Hawthorne, California.
HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, Zelman Development Co., to place the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with AIG Investments. Loan proceeds were used to recapitalize the property.
Century Business Center is fully leased to Triumph Aviation Group, which produces fuselages for Boeing’s 747 passenger and freighter commercial jets, and SpaceX, the largest private space transport company in the world. The center’s two main buildings total approximately one million square feet and provide a column-free work space with 35’ clear heights. The other buildings serve as office space, hangers, cafeteria, medical office and physical plant services. Additionally, the facility has more than 1,300 parking spaces and has rail access served by Southern Pacific Railroad. Situated on 43 acres just off Interstate 105 at 3901 Jack Northrop Avenue adjacent to the Hawthorne Municipal Airport, the property is approximately three miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 21 miles from the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.
HFF’s team was led by senior managing directors Paul Brindley and Anthony Brent, and managing director Ryan Martin.
“AIG's entrepreneurial approach allowed them to structure a transaction that allowed the borrower to buyout their partner and be positioned for the future with an attractive long-term financing,” Brindley said.
