CDK Realty Advisors provided $200 million in funding to RED Development LLC. The money will help fund RED’s development projects, including seven already identified projects located throughout Arizona, Arkansas and Missouri, and as yet unidentified projects in RED’s future pipeline. The projects will include lifestyle centers, power centers and mixed-use properties.
CDK has been investing in RED Development for 10 years now and has enjoyed a high rate of return, according to Dave Claflin, vice president of marketing with RED, so the company felt comfortable making another cash infusion to help RED deal with the current credit crisis. “CDK was looking to increase its holdings in RED projects and RED was looking for a way to march forward in these difficult times, so this agreement will achieve both goals,” he said.
