Meridian Arranges Acquisition Loan for Retail Condo

Meridian Capital Group arranged $9.5 million in acquisition financing for the purchase of a retail condominium, located at 119 Second Ave. between Cooper Square and the East Village, on behalf of Premier Equities. The 6,400-square-foot condo is tenanted by Bank of America. 

The 15-year loan, provided by a balance sheet lender, features a rate of 3.43% and amortizes on a 25-year schedule. This transaction was negotiated by Meridian senior managing director Cary Pollack and VP Judah Neuman, who are both based in the company’s New York City headquarters. 

“We are pleased to have negotiated long-term, fixed-rate acquisition financing for Premier Equities that reflects the high-quality tenancy they put in place while they had the deal under contract,” said Pollack.
