Eastern Union Arranges $54M in Funding on Properties in NY, FL
Eastern Union recently arranged financing totaling $53,745,000 for four commercial properties in New York State and Florida. The transactions were arranged by managing partner Abraham Bergman and VP Yossi Orzel.
The first transaction was a $28-million construction loan for a 159-unit, condominium project in upstate Monroe, NY. A second Monroe deal provided $5 million in financing for a 26-unit, fractured condominium property that is coming out of construction.
“Negotiating the right deal for a fractured condo transaction poses special challenges because many lenders simply don’t engage with this particular asset class,” said Orzel. “Nonetheless, Eastern Union succeeded in securing a loan that catered to the borrower’s specific needs.”
A third transaction secured $11 million in financing for a mixed-use property in Brooklyn. The fourth transaction supported a 160-unit, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) property in Immokalee, FL with a 10-year fixed loan valued at $9,745,000.
