Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has
arranged refinancing for The Summit, a 1.03 million-square-foot, trophy
retail center with Class A office space in Birmingham, Alabama.
HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, a partnership between Bayer
Properties LLC and Institutional Mall Investors LLC, a co-investment
venture co-owned by Miller Capital Advisory, Inc. and CalPERS, to place
the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with Bank of America. Loan proceeds are
being used to refinance an existing loan.
Developed in phases between 1997 and 2009, The Summit is one of the
Southeast’s premier locations to shop, dine, work and play. Anchored by
the only Saks Fifth Avenue (tenant owned) in Alabama and a flagship
Belk, the 99-percent-leased center is also home to Carmike Cinemas, Bed
Bath & Beyond, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Anthropologie, Gus Mayer,
Lululemon Athletica, Trader Joe’s, Sur La Table, Kate Spade, West Elm
and Michael Kors. Restaurant tenants include Cheesecake Factory, P.F.
Chang’s, Seasons 52, Macaroni Grill and California Pizza Kitchen.
Situated on 102 acres at 125 Summit Boulevard, The Summit is bordered by
U.S. 280, Interstate 459 and Cahaba Heights Road. The center is at the
epicenter of four of the most affluent Birmingham suburbs: Mountain
Brook, Homewood, Vestavia and Hoover. More than 40,000 residents earning
an average annual household income of more than $106,100 live within a
three-mile radius of the property. Additionally, the daytime population
within seven miles of the property is approximately 335,330.
The HFF debt placement team was led by director Jim Curtin.
