Commercial real estate finance brokerage Eastern Union arranged a $78,575,000 refinance of a portfolio of apartment properties in New Jersey and the Bronx

Eastern Union Arranges $79M of Apartment Properties in NJ and Bronx

Alex Jaffa, a senior loan consultant with Eastern Union, has arranged a $78,575,000 loan to refinance a 1,017-unit portfolio of 12 multifamily properties consisting of 11 sites across nine New Jersey localities, along with one property in the Bronx. The loan, secured through Kearny Bank, carries a fixed 4.25% interest rate over a 10-year period. 

“Leveraging our understanding of the lending marketplace, Eastern Union successfully secured highly competitive rates for one of our longstanding clients,” said Jaffa. “This expansive portfolio transaction illustrates the way a top-performing brokerage can demonstrate value in today’s challenging financial climate.” 

The properties, representing a total gross building area of 931,411 square feet, included properties in the following Central and South Jersey locations: Audobon, Bellmawr, Bordentown, Haddon Heights, Haddonfield, Laurel Springs, Lindenwold, Long Branch and Stratford. It also included the circa-1926 1164 Cromwell Ave. in the Bronx’s Concourse section.
