Of the seven properties in the portfolio, three are in South Carolina near Charleston and Greenville-Spartanburg:  Walmart Neighborhood Market at 10635 Dorchester Road in Summerville (Charleston), Poplar Springs Plaza at 2153 East Main Street in Duncan (Greenville-Spartanburg) and Tire Kingdom & Starbucks at 1820 North Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant (Charleston MSA).  The portfolio also includes two Georgia properties, Albany Square at 2707 Dawson Road in Albany and East-West Commons at 1757 East-West Connector in Austell (Atlanta); Morganton Heights at 400 Henredon Road in Morganton, North Carolina, and The Ridge at Turtle Creek in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  All properties in the portfolio are anchored by national retailers, including Walmart Neighborhood Market, Publix, Academy Sports, Belt, Dick’s, T.J. Maxx, Ross Dress for Less, Hobby Lobby and Bealls. 

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower consisted of senior managing director Kevin Mackenzie, director Greg Brown and associate director Cory Fowler.
