HFF Arranges Take-out Loan for Multifamily Near Harrison PATH

HFF has arranged $70 million in financing for Steel Works, a recently-completed, 286-unit apartment community in Harrison, NJ near the recently-redeveloped PATH station. The firm’s Greg Nalbandian and Jim Cadranell worked on behalf of a joint venture between Advance Realty and DeBartolo Development.

An institutional lender provided the 10-year, fixed-rate loan. Proceeds were used to retire existing construction financing.

“Steel Works represents the first Class A apartment project completed by the first class development team of Advance and DeBartolo within the Riverbend District, a 35-acre site that will ultimately deliver 3,000 luxury apartments and 100,000 square feet of retail,” Nalbandian said. “There was significant interest to finance this project, and we were successful in arranging a very aggressive fixed-rate loan with a heavy interest-only period for our client.”

Completed in 2017, Steel Works contains a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom floor plans. It’s 96.5% occupied.
