The deal was part of a four-commercial-property acquisition in Florida and Texas, as well as the refinance of two of its current commercial properties in Florida.  The complex transaction, which totaled $220 million, closed on November 30.

Bank United, Banesco and Thorofare provided roughly $110 million in loan proceeds. Beach Point Capital Management provided a preferred equity/mezzanine loan of roughly $70 million, with the sponsors, Basis and NexPoint, funding the remaining. The transaction encompassed all six properties under one shallow bay/multi-tenant industrial portfolio totaling 1,328,443 square feet.

“This $220 million portfolio transaction combining acquisitions, refinancing, multiple lenders and mezzanine financing represents our ability to achieve success in diversifying our asset classes and locations. This transaction, which took months, involved multiple sellers and lenders. It was extremely difficult, but we worked through it and got it closed,” said Scavo. “We appreciate the sellers for working with us on extensions that gave us time to piece this difficult transaction together. Shallow Bay industrial assets have done very well for us, and we are extremely pleased to close on these properties to complete this portfolio, which offers unique benefits in strategic locations.”


“This is a huge step for Basis’ growth and my vision,” added Daniel Weinstein, founder and CEO of Basis Industrial. “We expect to add millions of square feet over the next few years in targeted Sun Belt markets, and I want to thank my team for all their work on this enormous and complicated transaction.”
