The deals also include a mezzanine loan secured by two office properties located in the Denver, Colorado suburb of Lakewood.
“The properties, with occupancy rates in excess of 95 per cent, are leased by long standing tenants including; the National Institute of Health, in Raleigh; Oracle, in Frisco and; the law firm Baker Hostetler, in Lakewood,” said Mohammed Al-Shroogi, president of Gulf Business at Investcorp.
During the last 12 months, the firm’s real estate team has invested in eight equity transactions with a total deal size in excess of $300m, he said.
