Greystone Arranges Bridge Loan on Jersey City Multifamily 

Greystone arranged a $47-million lease-up bridge loan on behalf of Namdar Group for 28 Cottage, a new 166-unit class-A multifamily property in the Journal Square neighborhood of Jersey City. The new loan was originated by Cerberus RE and used to refinance the original construction loan provided by Centennial in 2019.  

The Greystone Capital Advisors team led by Drew Fletcher, Matthew Hirsch and Bryan Grover served as the exclusive advisor on behalf of Namdar. 

“The 28 Cottage transaction is another great example of the tremendously favorable capital markets environment for high quality multifamily assets in strong markets such as Jersey City,’ said Fletcher, president of Greystone Capital Advisors.  

He continued, “The Cerberus execution closed at TCO and allowed Namdar to repatriate substantial equity and lower its borrowing costs, while providing additional time to lease-up and season the asset prior to conversion to permanent financing.”
