DENVER, Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ProLogis (NYSE: PLD), the leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today that it has closed a $189 million loan for ProLogis North American Industrial Fund (PNAIF).  In exchange for additional property collateral, the interest-only loan refinanced an existing loan that was scheduled to mature in 2017.  The new loan matures in 2020, and the interest rate was reduced from 6.22 percent to a weighted average rate of 5.075 percent over the term of the new loan.
