Recap Brings Northern NJ Offices Under Sole Ownership
HFF has arranged the recapitalization of Greenbrook Executive Center, a 203,028-square-foot, Class A office building at 100 Passaic Ave. in Fairfield, NJ. A debt placement team led by Jim Cadranell and Matthew Pizzolato worked on behalf of Accordia Realty Ventures to arrange a buyout of Accordia’s equity partner in the three-story property, Guggenheim Real Estate.
The team arranged a $22.425-million, 10-year securitized loan with Silverpeak Argentic, and a $4.575- million, 10-year mezzanine loan with Morrison Street Capital, totaling $27 million in proceeds. This provided Accordia with the flexibility to buy out Guggenheim’s stake in the property the two companies have co-owned since 2006.
“Accordia has been headquartered at the property since they purchased the asset in 2006, and we knew how important this transaction was for them,” said Pizzolato. “Silverpeak and Morrison Street stepped up to the plate and provided excellent terms and a seamless execution.”
