CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CBL Properties (NYSE: CBL) today announced that, along with its 50% joint venture partners, it has closed on a new $40.0 million, ten-year, non-recourse loan secured by The Shoppes at Eagle Point, a Publix-anchored shopping center in Cookeville, TN. CBL and its joint venture partner opened the newly developed center in 2018. The new loan bears a fixed interest rate of 5.4%. Proceeds from the new loan were utilized to retire the existing $33.9 million partial recourse loan, which was set to mature in October.
“We are pleased to complete this new financing,” said Stephen Lebovitz, chief executive officer, CBL Properties. “It provides attractively priced long-term capital and eliminates the partial recourse remaining from the original construction loan. This new loan is a great example of how we are improving the flexibility of our balance sheet and building a stronger CBL.”
