Waypoint Lands $52M Financing for Ground-Up Hackensack Rentals

Cushman & Wakefield’s Equity, Debt, & Structured Finance (EDSF) group has arranged approximately $52 million in construction financing for a ground-up multifamily development set to launch in Hackensack, NJ. Waypoint Residential will redevelop the property at 435 Main St. with 235 Class A rental units.

EDSF team members John Alascio and Sridhar Vankayala headed the assignment on behalf of Waypoint. Additionally, Brian Whitmer of Cushman & Wakefield’s New Jersey capital markets practice provided market support for the transaction, which was collectively sourced and executed through Citizens Bank.

“435 Main Street represents a compelling financing opportunity for lenders, given its transit-oriented location, strong sponsorship and the opportunity to develop in a vibrant re-emerging neighborhood,” Alascio noted.

Despite the “tightening availability” of construction financing, Vankayala said, “Hackensack’s compelling growth story proved attractive to lenders, who are still keen to lend on multifamily construction projects – particularly for strong, proven sponsors, like Waypoint.”
