The shopping center real estate investment trust also amended the facility to improve the borrowing margin to London interbank offered rate plus 82.5 basis points. The revolver includes a competitive bid option that allows the REIT to request bids for up to $250 million, along with an accordion feature that could boost the facility's amount to as much as $850 million.
