Joni Sweetwood , repre- sented the seller, Teleflora Realty Group, LLC -- a long-time Kislak client – as well as the buyer, Goldcrest Properties, a new client. Sweetwood commented: “Buyers are attracted to new construction and gut-reno- vated properties when there is a PILOT program in place, and this property had a 30- year PILOT program in place already.” In New Jersey, Tax Abate- ment Programs provide for Payments in Lieu of Taxes or “PILOTs” to help with community growth and prog- ress in areas most in need of redevelopment or rehabilita- tion, attracting commercial, residential or industrial de- velopment more easily to such areas. Under such programs, municipalities are authorized to grant developers exemp- tions from traditional prop- erty taxes for a set period of time to encourage property improvements or to locate a project in a distressed area. Instead of property taxes, developers make annual PI- LOT payments to munici- palities which benefit both the municipality and the devel- oper alike: the payments are structured so that the munici- pality receives more benefit than from typical property taxes; and since the PILOT payment is much less than typical property taxes, the developer gains an increase in the fair market value of the property as a result of a higher net operating income. The Roselle property is lo- cated on the border of Eliza- beth, New Jersey’s fourth largest municipality; near shipping andWarinanco Park, an expansive, green space offering lake activities, an ice-skating rink and multiple playing fields and trails. The property is a four and one-half story brick, elevator building consisting of 32 one-bedroom and 3 two-bedroom renovated
