The 18-month loan from Octopus Real Estate — which was secured against four office buildings totalling 170,000 sq ft — refinanced the developer’s existing debt and funded the capital expenditure works on two of the offices: Clyst and Brook House.
The deal was under tight time constraints as the two offices had leases agreed and due to start in the new year.
