Meridian Capital Group, America’s most active deal maker, arranged $71.3 million in financing for the refinance of the SDK Millbridge Gardens multifamily property located in Clementon, NJ, on behalf of Dr. Dinesh Khosla of SDK Apartments.
The seven-year loan, provided by a local balance sheet lender, features a fixed rate of 3.75%. This transaction was negotiated by Meridian Managing Director, Zev Karpel and Vice President, Judah Hammer, who are both based in the company’s New York City headquarters.
SDK Millbridge Gardens, located at 1341 Blackwood Clementon Road in Clementon, NJ, is a premiere 848-unit garden-style multifamily community in the heart of historic Gloucester. The well-maintained property offers residents newly landscaped lawns and spacious, newly renovated apartments. Community amenities include a bilingual staff, assigned parking, on-site 24-hour maintenance, as well as swimming pools and tennis courts. SDK Millbridge Gardens is in close proximity to regional employment hubs, medical facilities and a variety of restaurants and shops. The property is a short drive from major transportation arteries, including the North-South Freeway and Blackwood Clementon Road.
“Meridian leveraged its strong lender relationships to secure a below-market fixed rate despite the sharp rise in interest rates in November and December of 2016,” said Mr. Karpel. “Additionally, the lender held the rate for 100 days in a very uncertain environment,” he added.
