Denver, CO November 15, 2021 - Essex Financial Group (“Essex”) arranged a $15.3 million bridge loan for Dalfen Industrial (“Sponsor”) for the acquisition of 6383 Las Positas Road in Northern California. The 106,700 square foot industrial building is situated in the Tri-Valley region with access to both Oakland and San Jose. The Seller, Prism Logistics, has been the sole tenant in the building for more than 10 years. The parties negotiated a sale and short-term leaseback with the seller.

Essex placed the $15.3M, bridge loan with a prominent national life insurance company at a competitive rate that was fixed throughout the term of the loan. The loan includes an initial principal balance, a future funding facility to finance tenant improvements, leasing commissions and capital improvements, and an up-front reserve for debt service payments while the property is being re-tenanted. The loan features an initial term of 24-months, followed by two extension options.

6383 Las Positas Road was constructed in 1985 and features 25’ clear heights, 11 loading docks and one drive-in door, located at the front of the Property. Additionally, there are four rail doors in the rear of the Property, which connect to a rail line. The building is currently configured for a single tenant, but could be converted to a multi-tenant building at a relatively minimal cost.

Essex’s Capital Markets team was led by Assistant Vice President Blaire Butler and Principal Alex Riggs.
