Arbor completes a $40.7M Fannie Mae loan for an affordable community

First King Apartments

Newark, N.J.—Arbor Commercial Funding has closed a $40.7 million loan under the Fannie Mae DUS Affordable Housing Loan product line that refinances the First King Apartments in Newark, N.J. The 654-unit complex is currently 95 percent leased. The new 10-year loan amortizes on a 30-year schedule.

Job losses in Newark have been declining since 2009 and Arbor predicts that demand in the rental market will continue to increase. Stephen York, a director at Arbor, originated the loan working out of the group’s New York office.

“Our client in this transaction significantly improved the physical condition and operations of the property over a four year span in order to take advantage of attractive long-term fixed rate financing,” says York. “In an environment where most lenders are shying away from large transactions, Arbor thrives and continues to deliver liquidity to the market.”
