Medical Office Owner Files $800K Loan
The new owner of the Applingwood Professional Office Building at 1540 Appling Care Lane in unincorporated Shelby County has filed an $800,000 loan on the property.
DCR Mortgage IV Sub I LLC, which lists a Florida address, bought the 10,744-square-foot medical office building for $500,000 last month in a substitute trustee’s sale. The loan was through Wells Fargo Foothill LLC.
The building’s previous owner, Applingwood Professional Office Building LLC, defaulted on a $1.3 million construction loan through Union Planters Bank (now Regions Bank) dated May 23, 1997. Ultimately, the debt was secured by DCR Mortgage, which foreclosed on the owner in May and then reclaimed the property in the substitute trustee’s sale.
R. Spencer Clift III of the law firm Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC was appointed substitute trustee and served as seller of the property.
Completed in 1997, the Class B medical office building sits on about 1 acre on the west side of Appling Care Lane near Cordova. The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2009 appraisal is $1.2 million.
The building has office space from 487 square feet to 5,916 square feet, according to a Web site run by its Crye-Leike Property Management Inc. leasing team of Michael Hall and Michele Harris. A request for further information was not returned by press time.

Nashville Opts Out Of New State Gun Law
The Metro Nashville City Council has reinforced its ban on guns in parks.
While the city’s attorneys say a decades-old ban was not superceded by a state statute about to take effect, council members voted 22-18 on final reading to opt out of the law that allows people with gun carry permits to take their weapons into parks.
The Tennessean newspaper quoted supporters of the ordinance who said they wanted to guard against any attempt to repeal the 43-year-old previously enacted ban.
