In other news... HFF announced that it has secured a $6.4 million refi- nancing for Port Columbus Executive Park, a three-build- ing, 124,922 s/f office portfolio in Columbus, Ohio.

Loan proceeds were used to replace existing financing on the property. HFF will also service the securitized loan. Port Columbus Executive Park is comprised of 2720, 2740 and 2760 Airport Dr., three office buildings that are 89% leased overall to 13 tenants including Lockheed Martin, AFLAC, Quest Diagnostics and Ohio State University. The properties are situated on near- ly 10 acres at the entrance of the Port Columbus International Airport, close to Interstate 670 about five miles northeast of downtown Columbus. The HFF team representing the borrower was led by director Michael Klein. “The borrower was seeking a fixed-rate loan that would enable them to maximize pro- ceeds and to take interest rate risk off the table for as long as possible,” said Klein. “Natixis was able to provide a structure that allowed Bergman Real Es- tate Group to meet their goals while minimizing the amount of structure required for future tenant roll.” ■
