Hackensack's Meridia Metro Snags $50M In Financing

Capodagli Property Co.'s Meridia Metro, a 222-unit multifamily building in Hackensack, N.J.

Meridia Metro, a six-story, 222-unit multifamily property in Hackensack, has received nearly $50M in financing from MetLife Real Estate.

HFF senior managing director Jon Mikula and managing director Michael Klein placed the 15-year, fixed-rate loan on behalf of borrower Capodagli Property Co., which sought to take advantage of historically low interest rates and avoid contingent liabilities associated with an in-place construction loan.

Meridia Metro, at the intersection of State and Warren streets, is a transit-oriented development near New Jersey Transit's Essex Street and Anderson Street train stations. It also provides access to Routes 4 and 17 and Interstate 80.

Completed last year, the property features one- and two-bedroom units and amenities including a 24-hour fitness center, a rooftop terrace with cabana bar and fire pit, a social room with poker and pool tables, a pet grooming room and grade-level parking.

Earlier this month, HFF managing director Scott Aiese and senior managing director Mike Tepedino also secured a $100M refinancing for Tonnelle Commons, a 410K SF, Class-A retail power center in North Bergen. The 10-year, non-recourse, fixed-rate loan was placed on behalf of borrower Urban Edge Properties.

The eight-year-old retail center is fully leased to 16 tenants and anchored by Walmart, BJ's Wholesale Club, PetSmart and Staples.
