“With The New Colonies’ prox- imity to Chicago and 98% oc- cupancy, we look forward to installing new amenities and raising output from rents at this up and coming property, while simultaneously break- ing into a new market.” Muller echoed Sabo’s sen- timent. “This is a class B property with a ton of upside potential,” he said. “It’s right up CityR’s alley with their knack for repositioning and maximizing potential, we view this as a great opportunity for CityR to once again work their magic.” n

Or iginated by Eastern Union president Ira Zlotow- itz and Michael Muller , senior managing director, the FannieMae loan features a ten year term, locking in a 4.03% interest rate. Provided by Ar- bor Commercial Mortgage , the loan covers roughly 83% of the purchase price. The property, The NewColo- nies, traded for $51.658 mil- lion and is located at 316 West 34th St., Steger IL, roughly 35 miles south of Chicago. The size of the deal also measured significant growth, as Zlotow- itz pointed out. “As CityR started working on larger deals we facilitated their growth accordingly, and the underwriting that went into this deal allowed us to ob- tain the full proceeds we need- ed,” Zlotowitz said. “Thanks to our relationship with Arbor and understanding of Fannie Mae, we could ultimately de- liver the dollars, branch out into different markets, comple- ment a nationwide presence and grow with our client.” CityR Group is an interna- tional firm with offices in the United States - where it owns thousands of units - as well as Israel and London. Yariv Ben-Ari of Akerman LLP , an attorney with a longstanding history with the investment firm, represented CityR Group on this deal. “For us, this deal is about increasing upside and grow- ing as a multinational firm. Eastern Union has become a national brand and they could appreciate that,” said CityR Group CEO of American Acquisitions, Michael Sabo .
