JLL Capital Markets arranges $11M in financing for Rahway Plaza Apartments

JLL Capital Markets arranged $11 million in permanent financing for Rahway Plaza Apartments, a two-building, 288-unit high-rise apartment community located in downtown Rahway, according to a Wednesday announcement.

JLL represented the borrower, Denholtz Properties, to secure the five-year, fixed-rate loan through Malvern Bank.

The two-building Rahway Plaza Apartments offers one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with large terraces, all-inclusive appliances, independently controlled gas heat and air conditioning and high-speed internet access. Community amenities include a champion-size swimming pool and children’s wading pool, a BBQ area with grills and picnic tables and a newly renovated playground and recreation area.

Situated at 1171-1181 Main St. in the heart of downtown Rahway, the property is within walking distance to the city’s entertainment venue, retail shops and restaurants and the Rahway Train Station, which offers a 36-minute commute to New York Penn Station. Within a 15-minute drive are several retail centers, such as Aviation Plaza, Clark Commons, Menlo Park Mall and Woodbridge Center.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Michael Klein and Jon Mikula, and analyst Salvatore Buzzerio. Malvern Bank was led by Bill Boylan, executive vice president and chief lending officer, along with several members of the executive team to coordinate the approval and closing.

“Malvern Bank … was attracted to Denholtz’s history with the property, having developed it in 1970 and owning and managing it ever since,” Klein said. “The affordable units at the property added some complexity to the transaction that the bank easily got their arms around and was a pleasure to work with on this transaction.”
