In Milwaukee, Wis., a 506,195-square-foot, Class A office building collateralized a $71.3 million, 123-month, fixed-rate loan for Eaton Vance Management from Principal Global Investors, according to Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP.

Holliday also said it arranged $163.5 million in acquisition and pre-development financing for a 1.1 million square foot condominium interest in 375 Pearl Street located in downtown Manhattan, N.Y.
