Capital One Closes $21.2MM Loan to Finance Texas Medical Office Building

Capital One announced it provided a $21.2 million first mortgage to a joint venture formed by Harrison Street Real Estate Partners and Pisula Development Company. The funds were used to purchase Imperial Medical Center, a 128,000-square-foot medical office building in Sugar Land, Texas, a suburb of Houston. Both Harrison Street and Pisula Development are longstanding Capital One customers.

“The Capital One team was extremely responsive to our needs and worked closely with us throughout the transaction to provide strategic financing options that align with our long-term goals,” said Jim Pisula, Chief Financial Officer at Pisula Development.
