Greystone Lines Up $203M Financing on Ronkonkoma Rentals 

Greystone provided a $203,143,000 Freddie Mac Optigo loan to an affiliate of TRITEC Real Estate Company for the Alston Station Square, a recently built, six-building, 489-unit Class A market-rate rental apartment complex located at 1000 Mill Rd. in Ronkonkoma, NY. The new 10-year, fixed-rate Freddie Mac loan refinances the original construction loan from Bank of America. 

The Greystone Capital Advisors team led by Drew Fletcher, Matthew Hirsch, Jesse Kopecky, and Tori Colledge served as exclusive advisors on behalf of TRITEC. They assisted in arranging the financing, which was provided by Greystone Servicing through its agency lending team, led by Dan Gillard, who originated the loan from Greystone Servicing. 

Alston is the first phase of The Hub at Ronkonkoma Master Development, a two-million-plus-square foot master plan that the Town of Brookhaven awarded to TRITEC in 2012 to lead the transformation of Ronkonkoma as a regional transportation center for eastern Long Island.
