JLL Arranges Financing for Thor Equities on Meadowlands Industrial
JLL Capital Markets arranged pre-development and construction financing on behalf of Thor Equities for the development of a 150,917-square-foot speculative warehouse and distribution facility at 14-22 River Rd. in Bogota, NJ. JLL’s David Sitt, Peter Rotchford, Matthew Pizzolato and Michael Lachs placed the floating-rate loan with Centennial Bank.
“We continue to see tremendous interest form the lending community for well-located, institutional-quality industrial projects,” said Pizzolato. “Centennial Bank recognized this and stepped up to offer attractive terms and a structure that will allow our client to execute their business plan.”
Once completed, the facility will offer tenants a 40-foot clear height, 28 dock doors, three drive-in doors, low office finish, ESFR fire protection, 15 trailer parking stalls and 225 parking spaces. The property is in the dense, infill Meadowlands industrial submarket, which has a limited inventory of modern, Class A distribution product.
