The Ritz Plaza is a 43-story building featuring 479 luxury rental apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail and office space. The 10-year fixed rate loan has an interest rate of 5.34 percent and features two years of interest only payments. “The timing of the rate lock was precise,” says Abe Hirsch of Meridian. “The borrower was able to take full advantage of an extreme single day drop in treasury yields to achieve such an attractive fixed rate.” The loan was placed with Freddie Mac via the New York office of Walker & Dunlop. The newly renovated Ritz Plaza includes amenities such as a fitness center, indoor pool and newly remodeled social center for tenants.Cushman & Wakefield Completes Sale of 328-Unit Rental Community for Over $22MLouisville, Ky.–Cushman & Wakefield has completed the sale of the Terraces at Forest Springs, a 328-unit apartment complex (pictured right) in Louisville, Ky. for $22.87 million.
