WASHINGTON, D.C. – HFF announced today that it has arranged $26 million in financing for Monroe Crossing (top left photo) and University Mall (middle right photo), regional malls in Monroe and Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
HFF worked exclusively on behalf of Madison Marquette Retail Enhancement Fund to arrange the loans.
A $10 million, five-year, floating-rate loan was placed with BB&T for Monroe Crossing and a $16 million, three-year, floating-rate loan was placed with PCCP, LLC for University Mall. Proceeds were used to facilitate refinancings for both properties.
Monroe Crossing is located at 2115 West Roosevelt Boulevard about 20 miles southeast of Charlotte. The 350,000-square-foot regional mall was most recently renovated in 2010 and is anchored by Sears, JC Penney and Belk. Occupancy is 83 percent.
University Mall is located at 201 South Estes Drive close to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The 90 percent leased mall has 366,000 square feet of space and is anchored by Harris Teeter, Dillards and Southern Season.

“Meehan’s is Chapter One in what will be the story of Atlantic Station’s restaurant re-tenanting,” said Mark Toro (middle left photo), Managing Partner, North American Properties.
“When North American Properties took over Atlantic Station just over a year ago, we asked the people of Midtown what they wanted to see.
“Meehan’s represents well what they said they wanted — a welcoming, locally owned concept with great food and a great atmosphere. We are thrilled to welcome Meehan’s to Atlantic Station and to offer our guests a great new dining option.”
While the newest Meehan’s won’t officially be open for St. Patrick’s Day, the restaurant is partnering with Atlantic Station to present the first-ever Shamrock Station celebration March 17.
The St. Patrick’s Day celebration, sure to be a new tradition for Atlanta, will include Irish music and family activities during the day, as well as a big music headliner (stay tuned for an announcement) and plenty of beer as the day goes on. Meehan’s plans to feature beer trucks and barbecue stations.
Meehan’s, which has three locations in the Atlanta area (downtown, Vinings and Sandy Springs), is the perfect place to gather for a quick lunch, after work gathering, dinner with friends and late-night fun.
This brand proudly carries forward the message, “Irish Customs, Neighborhood Charm” and the menu features interesting and satisfying twists on Irish and Southern cuisine.
Meehan’s is part of 101 Concepts, a privately owned restaurant group with more than 20 years experience in developing and operating successful restaurant concepts in the Atlanta area. Other restaurants include Food101 in Sandy Springs, Soho in Vinings, Cibo e Beve in Sandy Springs and Coastal Kitchen on St. Simon’s Island.
