Mega Furniture Secures $81M Refi for Gilbert Shopping Center

Two years after purchasing the Gilbert Gateway Towne Center, Mega Furniture has obtained an $81 million refinancing on the property.

Commercial Edge reports CBRE arranged the senior loan with fixed interest rates for 5 years. The financing was structured on an interest-only basis for the entire 5-year term to maximize cash flow. CBRE’s Shaun Moothart led a team that secured the non-recourse financing.

Mega Furniture purchased the Class A asset in 2021 from Vestar. The $50.2 million transaction also involved a $37.7 million acquisition loan from Oceanview Life.

Completed in 2005 on Power Road in Gilbert, Gilbert Gateway Towne Center’s tenant roster features a mix of more than 40 national retailers including Ross, PetSmart, Michael’s and Cost-Plus World Market. Vestar still serves as property manager.
