LAW FIRM ON DEED: Kevin A Denti PA, Naples
PLANS, DESCRIPTION: TerraCap Partners II has joined the ownership of three Eastlinks industrial buildings in Eastlinks Business Park. The Bonita Springs investment fund purchased the mortgage, which was current, but had an above market interest rate. In exchange for paying off the debit, TerraCap Partners II and the buildings' current owners Westlinks Estate Associates sold the buildings to a joint entity, Eastlinks RSW International LLC, for $2.77 million.
The sale included the 57,500-square-foot Eastlinks II, 57,500-square-foot Eastlinks III and the 59,850-square-foot Eastlinks IV A and B. The buildings have a total occupancy of 73%.
“They were looking to recapitalize, so we stepped in to do that and took them in as partner,” says W. Steve Hagenbuckle, managing principal of TerraCap Partners. “With that one we now have 15 buildings in that [Westlinks Business Park area] for a combined 510,000 square feet. That allows us to control the available space in that area. Even if a new building were to be built it would be at a much higher cost per square foot.”
Hagenbuckle says the three buildings were very well maintained and won't require more than the typical building maintenance.
