In Guttenberg, NJ — Meridian Capital Group ar- ranged $7.7 million in ground- up construction financing for the development of a luxury apartment building. The 18-month construction loan, provided by a balance sheet lender, features full- term interest-only payments and two six-month options to extend the loan. This financing was negotiated by Meridian vice presidents, Paul Gilbert and Emil DePasquale , who are both based in the com- pany’s Iselin office. The future multifamily prop- erty, located at 62-68 69th St. in Guttenberg, is planned to be a six-story, 39-unit luxury apartment building. The prop- erty is one of a kind that will offer state-of-the-art smart home technology, high-end ap- pliances, exceptional interior designs, a fitness center and a vegetated rooftop terrace with outdoor gas fire pits. 62-68 69th Street will be the first property in Guttenberg to offer below- grade onsite secured parking that utilizes car elevators. “The loan was already com- mitted in early 2016, but the borrower decided to enter into contract to sell the property,” said DePasquale. “Nearly a year later, after the sale was not completed, Meridian uti- lized their relationship with the original lender and was able to achieve favorable terms with full-term interest-only payments, despite the change in the lenders underwriting guidelines.” n

“With CPC’s lending expertise I’m not just buying a building, I’m revitalizing the block.”
