VIZZDA—June 2nd, 2013 – A group formed by Daryl R Burton of Phoenix, Rod Saunders of Mesquite, Texas and Bernie Van Maren of British Columbia, Canada have acquired the First Arrowhead Commerce Center in Peoria for $15.8m or $73.83 per square foot. The 203,000 ft2 complex is located south of the southwest corner of Loop 101 and Bell Road in the West Valley and is comprised of four 1-story buildings with six truck wells and seven grade level roll-up doors. The facility sits on 17.38 acres and is zoned PAD; it was completed in 2001.
The seller was LNR Partners as special servicer for the registered holders of Greenwich Capital Commercial Funding Corp. Commercial Mortgage Trust, Series 2005-GG5, with US Bank as trustee. Lasalle bank had previously securitized the debt and assigned it to US Bank on November 8th, 2011 and US Bank placed the $19.6m portion of the $317.5m cross-collateralized debt secured by the Arrowhead Commerce Center—originally underwritten by Archon Financial, a Goldman Sachs subsidiary—into Special Servicing on January 10th of 2012. The property was subsequently noticed for trustee sale on March 9th, 2012 and reverted to US Bank as beneficiary on June 22nd, 2012 with a $16.1m credit bid.
The prior owners acquired the buildings in four consecutively recording deeds on April 20th, 2004 with a total sales price of $25,396,051 or $125.10 per square foot with $8,394,283 down and $222m new cross-collateralized debt accruing to the benefit of the Mortgage Electronic Registration System with Bank of America as Trustee. An additional $317.5m in new cross-collateralized debt was issued by Archon Financial on November 10th, 2005 and assigned to Lasalle Bank on August 26th, 2009. The current buyers secured an additional $13.5m with US Banks to finance the acquisition. The $15.1m sales price represents a decline of 40.5% from its pre-distress acquisition price.
