DELRAY BEACH, FLA. – Craig Romer of Dockerty Romer & Co. has arranged a permanent mortgage loan in the amount of $78,000,000 for a class “A” CBDbuilding known as 100 North Tampa.
100 North Tampa is comprised of 552,080 SF and is widely regarded as Tampa’s premier CBD address. The 42-story skyscraper, Tampa’s tallest, features a pewter-tinted glass and Spanish Rosa Dante granite façade. This postmodern architectural style is highlighted by a gothic-style roof, granite cornices, prominent setbacks at the 38th and 40th floors and forty foot high arches at the two entrances.
Additionally, 100 North Tampa has achieved a Silver LEED certification. 100 North Tampa boasts an impressive roster of tenants such as Holland & Knight,Bank, Foley & Ladner, Chartis Claims, DLA Piper USA and Citi Group-Morgan Stanley. Given its prominent position within the Tampa CBD, 100 North Tampa consistently outperforms the overall market and currently reports an occupancy level of 95%. The Tampa office of MetLife Real Estate Investors provided the five-year, floating rate facility to the borrower, an institutional pension fund advisor, while Craig Romer of Dockerty Romer & Co. acted as an intermediary.
Romer commented that,” Working with a sophisticated borrower and lender was truly a pleasure. Both parties brought highly competent teams to the transaction, and worked with a cooperative spirit throughout the process.”
Romer went on to say that,” The overall quality of the real estate coupled with the strength of the borrower made 100 North Tampa a desirous financing assignment. However, in the end, having local knowledge of Tampa’s CBD gave the folks from Met an upper hand which allowed them the ability to capture the business.”
