PITTSBURGH, PA – HFF announced today that it has arranged a $53.7 million construction loan for a to-be-built, two-building Class A office campus totaling 336,000 square feet in Southpointe Office Park located 15-miles southwest of downtown  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

HFF worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, Quattro Investment Group, to secure the three-year construction loan through Wesbanco Bank with First Commonwealth Bank and First National Bank as participants.

Due for completion in October 2014, the project will consist of an 186,000-square-foot, LEED certified, five-story building that is a build-to-suit for the world headquarters of Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) plus a 150,000-square-foot speculative office building.  The properties are situated on a 21 acre site within Southpointe Office/Industrial Park, an 830-acre mixed-use development about 15 miles southwest of the Pittsburgh central business district and 12 miles southeast of the Pittsburgh International Airport in Southpointe. 

The HFF team representing Quattro Investment Group was led by senior managing director Mark Popovich and managing director Matt Kafka.

The managing partner of Quattro is Jim Scalo, president of Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services.

Mr. Scalo states that, “this is an incredible development in a very tight office market.  Based on the activity in the market, we anticipate that the speculative office building will be leased before construction is completed.”
