A real estate investment firm got a 10-year, fixed-rate loan to finance its $16.3 million acquisition of a warehouse complex next to Tampa International Airport.

Equitable Real Estate Partners borrowed $10.53 million to acquire Westshore Logistics Center, a 167,956-square-foot warehouse complex at 5411-5521 Southern Comfort Boulevard in Tampa.

The property was 100 percent leased at the time of the sale to tenants including Baystone Tile, Shriner Hospitals, Vitamin Discount Center and XPO Logistics.

Westshore Logistics Center comprises four single-story warehouse and distribution buildings on a 10.7-acre site.

Originally constructed in 1972, the buildings got a $4.2 million renovation in recent years under the previous ownership.

Senior managing director Charles Foschini and managing director Christopher Apone of the South Florida office of Berkadia secured the acquisition loan for Equitable Real Estate Partners.

“The borrower had multiple options to choose from,” Foschini said in a prepared statement. “In the end, a lender who could rate lock at the inception of a transaction proved to be a wise move with the continued volatility of the capital markets.” – Mike Seemuth
