BOSTON – December 18, 2019 – Berkadia today announced the financing secured for Lakeview Avenue Apartments, a 92-unit garden-style multifamily property in Reading, Massachusetts and Marble Park Manor Apartments, a 34-unit garden-style property in Stoneham, Massachusetts. Senior Managing Director Ryan Nelson and Director Anthony Golebiewski of Berkadia’s Boston office secured the respective $12.5 million and $4.425 million in financing for these two properties through a northeast regional bank on behalf of their owner, Winchester-based Albiani Management.
The non-recourse 15-year loans both feature a 3.53 percent fixed interest rate and a 30-year amortization. The deals closed on December 12th.
“Both assets have been meticulously maintained over the years and sit in two of the strongest suburban submarkets of the Boston Metropolitan Area. Given those facts, the lender was able to provide a long-term loan structure that matched Albiani’s business plan,” said Golebiewski. “Long-term holders of real estate are currently able to take advantage of the present interest rate environment and these two transactions are prime examples.”
Paul Albiani, Managing Partner of Albiani Management, stated, “Berkadia provided comprehensive coverage of the debt markets on our behalf. Berkadia’s Boston team took the time to understand our goals and provided a financing option that fit our needs. We are extremely pleased with being able to secure 15-year fixed-rate loans with such an attractive interest rate.”
