JLL: $58M in refinancing secured for 3 Journal Square, 240-unit apartment building in center of Jersey City

JLL Capital Markets on Wednesday said it arranged a $58 million refinancing for 3 Journal Square, a 240-unit, luxury midrise multihousing apartment building located in Jersey City.

JLL represented the borrower, 3 Journal Square Urban Renewal LLC, to secure the seven-year, fixed-rate loan through a life insurance company.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales Advisory team was led by Thomas Didio, Thomas E. Didio Jr., Gerard Quinn and John Cumming.

Built in 2017, 3 Journal Square offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units with bright, open layouts, full-size washers and dryers, chestnut wood vinyl flooring, granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom kitchen cabinetry and quartz bathroom countertops. Community amenities include a state-of-the-art health and fitness center, a yoga studio, a resident lounge with fireplace and billiards, a rooftop deck with Manhattan skyline views and lounge areas and more.

Situated at 2955 John F. Kennedy Blvd., 3 Journal Square is set within the center of Jersey City in Journal Square, allowing residents the convenient walkability to area amenities, and is just steps from the Journal Square Path Station. Additionally, the property is proximate to major north-south and east-west road corridors, as well as the connections to the New Jersey Turnpike and Pulaski Skyway. The community is approximately three miles from the World Trade Center and New York City’s financial district, nine miles from Midtown Manhattan and seven miles from downtown Newark.

“This financing is a testament to the quality of product the developer has delivered to the market. The lender stepped up to the plate and delivered very strong economic terms to allow the partnership to continue operating this tremendous asset in a burgeoning submarket of Jersey City. JLL is grateful to play a role in continuing to grow the relationship between the developer and lender teams,” Didio said.
