Newly Built Seniors Housing Trades in Sayreville

AMS Acquisitions LLC, a New York City-based investment firm, sold Gillette Towers, a two-building seniors housing community in Sayreville, NJ for $28 million. The buyers were A&RW Properties LLC and its affiliates, JYW Holdings LLC and Nadlan Capital Inc.

AMS purchased the two building, 136-unit site in 2019 for $13 million from Gillette, a New Jersey-based development firm. The 80-unit building at 100 Kennedy Dr. was already completed, and AMS subsequently broke ground on the 56-unit second building at 110 Kennedy Dr.

While other New York City developers have moved to Florida or Texas, “We have continued to invest in the NY metro area, developing projects in suburban counties of New York and New Jersey,” said AMS principal Michael Mitnick.

The buyer closed with its own equity and a bridge loan from lender MF1 Capital LLC, represented by brokers David Eisen and Meir Kessner of Sevenstone Capital.
