TOMS RIVER, N.J. — HFF has arranged $17.4 million in acquisition financing for Commons at Hooper, a community shopping center located at 1350 Hooper Ave. in Toms River. A partnership between Unison Realty Partners and ALTO Real Estate Fund is the borrower. OceanFirst Bank provided the five-year, fixed-rate loan, as well as a $3.4 million construction line that will be used for capital and tenant improvements as well as leasing commissions. Constructed in 1987, the 120,349-square-foot center is 86 percent leased by 21 tenants, including Michaels, DSW, Dollar Tree, Mattress Firm, Dress Barn, The UPS Store, Avenue, Sally Beauty, Jersey Mike’s Subs and Citi Financial. The borrower plans to lease the remaining available space, extend tenants with pending maturities early and invest in capital improvements. The improvements will include a new roof, resurfaced parking lot, new pylon signage and façade upgrade. Additionally, the partnership may construct a 2,500-square-foot pad site at the center. Michael Klein and Greg Labine of HFF arranged the financing for the borrower.
