Brooklyn calling

Earlier this month, a joint venture between Rose Associates and Benenson Capital Partners landed a $178 million refinancing loan for Hoyt & Horn, the partnership’s 368-unit mixed-income community that was completed last year in downtown Brooklyn.

Brooklyn’s multifamily market has continued to perform well in 2019, according to a just-released Yardi Matrix report. The borough’s occupancy rate in stabilized properties, at 98.7 percent as of March, has remained one of the highest across the country. In 2018, more than 5,000 new multifamily units were added to the market, a new cycle high for Brooklyn.
