CBRE Arranges $57M Recapitalization of New Jersey Commercial, Residential Portfolio
ORANGE, EAST ORANGE AND JERSEY CITY, N.J. — CBRE has arranged $57 million in loans through Freddie Mac’s Small Balance Loan Program for the recapitalization of a portfolio of 13 mixed-use properties in Northern New Jersey. Part of the proceeds will be used to fund upgrades to the assets, which are located in the cities of Orange, East Orange and Jersey City. CBRE arranged the 13 loans on behalf of the borrower, Newark-based One Wall Partners, which acquired the portfolio in 2017 for $63 million. Mixed-use buildings qualify for Freddie Mac’s small balance loan program if less than 40 percent of a property’s income is generated from commercial leases. In this particular case, the mixed-use buildings were multifamily over ground-floor retail.
