High-Rise Finance

The owner of a 25-story office building in downtown Little Rock landed a $25 million funding agreement.

Ltd., Prudential Arizona Reinsurance Universal Co., PICA Hartford Life & Annuity Comfort Trust and Par U Hartford Life Insurance Comfort Trust.

The 2.06-acre development previously was tied to an August 1995 mortgage of $25 million held by Prudential Insurance Co. of America.

The limited partnership bought the 432,000-SF Stephens Building and adjoining seven-story parking deck from Doyle and Josephine Rogers in November 1989 for $26 million.

On June 1987, the development was linked with $39.5 million in debt to Republicbank of Dallas and a $3.6 million mortgage held by FirstSouth of Pine Bluff.

The Rogers family assembled land for the project in two buys totaling $1.73 million. The sellers were First Southern Corp., led by Howard Wiechern, $1.5 million in March 1978; and Jack Collier East Co., led by James East, $233,000 in August 1980.
