HFF worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, Capodagli Property Company, to place the long-term, fixed-rate loan through MetLife Real Estate.

Meridia Metro is situated at the intersection of State and Warren Streets proximate to Routes 4 and 17 and Interstate 80.  The transit-oriented property provides access into New York City and other nearby employment hubs.  Completed in 2016, Meridia Metro features a mix of one- and two-bedroom units and community amenities that include a 24-hour fitness center; rooftop terrace; pet grooming room; and grade-level parking garage.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Jon Mikula and managing director Michael Klein.

“The borrower was seeking a way to take advantage of today’s historically low interest rates and avoid the contingent liabilities associated with the in-place construction loan while still in lease up,” Klein stated.

“MetLife was able to lock the rate on a 15-year term at application, providing a structure that best met the borrower’s needs.”
