Greystone Arranges $94M Construction Loan for Newark Multifamily

Greystone recently arranged a $94-million construction loan for an affiliate of J&L Companies to finance the development of a 12-story, 403-unit Class A multifamily project at 55 Union St. in Newark, NJ’s Ironbound District. 

The construction loan was provided by a four-bank syndicate led by Valley National Bank (VNB), with Bank Hapoalim, Abanca USA, and TriState Capital Bank as participants.

Greystone Capital Advisors, led by president Drew Fletcher, director Matthew Hirsch and VP Steven Deck, served as the exclusive advisor in arranging the financing.

“As a local developer, long-term stakeholder, and property owner for over 40 years, J&L is deeply committed to advancing the revitalization of downtown Newark by developing projects that will create a thriving, vibrant neighborhood for local residents and businesses,” said Fletcher. “We are excited to have delivered this execution and look forward to growing our relationships with J&L and our financing partners at VNB.”
