HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, a co-investment partnership between Regency Centers, LP and Global Retail Investors, LLC (a joint venture between CalPERS and First Washington Realty, Inc.), to place four separate 10-year, fixed-rate, interest-only loans totaling $61 million with Sentinel Asset Management.  Loan proceeds are being used to refinance existing debt.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Jim Cadranell.

“It was a pleasure to work with the Regency team to find the most competitive financing in the market for these shopping centers,” Cadranell said.  “Sentinel Asset Management is a new capital source for Regency, so both lender and borrower are pleased with the outcome.”
