MORRISTOWN, NEW JERSEY (January 3, 2022) – Gary Cohen, senior vice president/managing director of Northmarq’s New Jersey office secured financing totaling $66.5 million for three affordable multifamily properties located throughout Hudson County, New Jersey. The properties, all of which are under PILOT agreements, contain a combined 376 units and are subject to Long Term HAP (Housing Assistance Payments) Contracts.

Westview Apartments: Northmarq arranged the $32,500,000 refinance of this 116-unit multifamily property located at 55-75 Bloomfield Street in Hoboken, New Jersey. The property (originally built in 1905 and renovated in 1995) consists of sixty-three 1-bedroom/1-bath units, thirty-nine 2-bedroom/1-bath units and fourteen 3-bedroom/1-and-a-half-bath units.

New Floral Gardens 1B: Northmarq arranged the $22,000,000 refinance of this 145-unit multifamily property (originally built in 1959) located at 26th Street & Newkirk in North Bergen, New Jersey. The property consists of 39 one-bedroom/one-bath units, 54 two-bedroom/one-bathroom units, forty-nine 3-bedroom/1-and-a-half-bathroom units and three 4-bedroom/1-and-a-half-bathroom units.

New Floral Gardens II: Northmarq arranged the $12,000,000 refinance of this 115-unit multifamily property located at 2615-2635 Kennedy Boulevard in North Bergen, New Jersey. The property (originally built in 1952) consists of 28 studios/one-bath units, eighty-four 1-bedroom/1-bath units and three 2-bedroom/one-bath units.

The loans were structured with a 10-year term followed by a 30-year amortization schedule and were index locked in August. Northmarq secured the financing for the borrower, an affiliate of the Applied Housing Management Company, through its OPTIGO status as a Freddie Mac Lender.

"Applied Housing Management is the premier affordable apartment management organization in Hudson County,” said Cohen. “NorthMarq arranged long-term financing for all three properties at a rate below three percent prior to the latest run up in Treasuries.”
