Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm served as the exclusive advisor to the ownership group in the procurement of a combined $223,869,000 for the refinancing of the Harbor Point portfolio, a four-building, 989-unit multifamily portfolio located at 301 Commons Park South, 111 Towne Street, 110 Towne Street and 120 Towne Street in Stamford, Connecticut. The Freddie Mac financing was provided by Greystone.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Equity, Debt & Structured Finance team of John Alascio, Alex Hernandez, Alex Lapidus and Chris Meloni, with assistance from the firm’s Capital Markets team of Niko Nikolaou and Ryan Dowd in coordination with Brian Whitmer, represented the borrower in the transaction. Greystone’s Judah Rosenberg originated the four loans, all seven-year fixed-rate Freddie Mac mortgages with 35-year amortization periods.
“We are thrilled to have successfully arranged the financing for the Harbor Point Portfolio, featuring four prestigious Class A multifamily properties situated in Stamford's coveted South End,” said Alascio. “The portfolio redefines luxury living with a host of top-tier amenities and strategic location within a ten-minute walk from the Stamford Transportation Station.”
“We were able to take advantage of an early index lock in order to achieve a lower interest rate, a true benefit in today’s rising rate environment,” added Rosenberg.
The portfolio consists of a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units ranging from 544 square feet to 1,429 square feet. Each building features tenant parking, resort-style pools, a clubroom with a kitchen and multiple lounges, a fitness center, controlled building access, resident concierge, gaming tables, on-site management and an affordability component.
The portfolio is located within a ten-minute walk from the Stamford Transportation Center, servicing the Metro-North and Amtrak trains allowing convenient access to and from Manhattan. The properties are in proximity to Interstate 95 and the Stamford CBD.
