Meridian Closes Loan for Soundview Multifamily Buy

Meridian Capital Group arranged $18.3 million in acquisition financing for the $24.4-million purchase of a multifamily property in the Bronx, on behalf of RJ Block Properties. 

The five-year loan features a rate of 3.00% and three years of interest-only payments. The deal was negotiated by director Jacob Schmuckler and VP Meir Schlusselberg.

“Meridian was able to negotiate a favorable rate and close this loan for our client from start to finish in just 45 days as the market was starting to rise,” said Schmuckler. 

Located at 1240 Morrison Ave. in the Bronx’s Soundview neighborhood, the 12-story multifamily property contains 154 studio-, one-, and two-bedroom apartments. The property includes an elevator, a live-in super, and a laundry room. 

Residents benefit from easy access to the Cross Bronx Expressway, Bronx River Parkway, Arthur Sheridan Expressway, and the Bruckner Expressway, as well as the 6 train at the Morrison Avenue-Soundview Station.
