HFF Arranges Acquisition Financing for HP Plaza at Springwoods Village in North Houston

Apr 17, 2019 04:17 pm

HFF announces that it has closed the financing of HP Plaza at Springwoods Village, two newly constructed Class AA office buildings totaling 378,402 square feet at CityPlace, a 60-acre, mixed-use urban district within Springwoods Village at the intersection of Interstate 45 and the Grand Parkway in North Houston.

HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, Northridge Capital, LLC, to secure the fixed-rate acquisition loan through Apollo Global Management, who provided the loan on behalf of Athene Holdings. HFF also represented the seller in the sale of the property to Northridge.

HP Plaza at Springwoods Village is located at 11300 and 11400 Energy Drive within the 2,000-acre Springwoods Village mixed-use community that is positioned at the intersection of Interstate 45 and the Grand Parkway North Houston. When fully complete Springwoods Village will include four million square feet of Class A office space, 400,000 square feet of integrated retail space, diverse housing options, civic facilities, outdoor recreation, shopping, dining and lodging in an urban walkable environment. Completed in 2018, the two LEED-certified buildings are fully leased to HP, Inc. and join corporate neighbors ExxonMobil, Southwestern Energy and American Bureau of Shopping in Springwoods Village.

HFF’s debt placement team representing the borrower/buyer was led by senior director Chris Hew and managing director Cary Abod. The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included managing director Trent Agnew and senior managing director Jeff Hollinden.

“HP Plaza checks the three boxes Northridge Capital looks for when pursuing single tenant opportunities: strong credit quality and cash flows; desirable underlying, functional real estate and a dynamic suburban/urban location that will cater to the workforce of the future and serve as a recruiting tool for the tenant,” David Etemadi, Vice President of Acquisitions for Northridge Capital, said. “We believe more and more Fortune 500 companies will choose to locate in these types of locations around the country in the ‘arms race’ for the best human capital.”

“HP Plaza is a world-class asset that offers excellent yield in a growing submarket of Houston,” Hew said. “We’re pleased to have helped Northridge secure financing for this property.”
