Meridian Capital Group, America’s most active dealmaker, arranged $19 million in construction take-out financing for the refinance of a mixed-use property located in the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
The seven-year loan, provided by a local balance sheet lender, features a fixed rate of 4.00%. This transaction was negotiated by Meridian Associate, Blake Orman, who is based in the company’s New York City headquarters.
The property, located at 1122 Chestnut Avenue in Midwood, is a seven-story mixed-use property, consisting of 57 class-A rental units and 12,600 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Building amenities include high-speed elevators, parking with optional valet service, a laundry facility and a bicycle storage room. Each residential unit features wide plank floors, oversized windows, custom designed kitchens, and private outdoor space. Situated on a busy corner lot at the intersection of Chestnut and Coney Island Avenues the property houses notable tenant HASC Diagnostic and Treatment Center. Residents and tenants enjoy walking distance from the Q subway line at Avenue M, as well as the Avenue M/Coney Island Avenue bus line B9.
“1122 Chestnut is a newly developed contemporary-style building with a sophisticated interior, making it a stand-out property in the neighborhood,” said Mr. Orman. “The lender recognized the value created by our client and Meridian was able to negotiate a seven-year non-recourse loan that provided significant proceeds above the property’s cost basis,” he added.
