Capital ne- g o t i a t e d $23.353 mil- lion for the r e f i n a n c e of a newly constructed h i g h - r i s e apar tment b u i l d i n g l ocat ed at 115-129 37th St.in Union City. The 10-sto-

Brad Domenico

ry property, also known as “Hudson Heights”, is c omp r i s e d of 96 high-end residential apartment units. When the borrower called Progress Capital, his request was simple (to him). “I have a newly constructed apartment building that will be leased for 1 month and I would like to take out all my equity, plus some.” As a general rule, banks require a sufficient amount of time to demonstrate prof- itability, also known as “sea- soning” before considering a permanent loan. In this instance, Domenico had only one month of performance to work with, while sourcing an acceptable 10 year fixed-rate loan. Ultimately, Domenico was able to secure several op- tions for the borrower who quickly made the decision to proceed with an Agency Loan (Fannie Mae) underwritten through Red Capital . The loan closed after only one month of stabilized perfor- mance at a rate under 4% fixed for 10 years, 3 years in- terest only and non-recourse. Many borrowers wind up paying costly fees to extend their construction loans or miss an opportunity to lock into a low rate thinking they need 12 months of history to qualify for a permanent mort- gage, which is not always the case. In Sicklerville, Progress Capital closed a $22.3 million loan from Valley National Bank to refinance The Shop- pes at Cross Keyes, a 176,000 s/f retail shopping center located in Sicklerville.
