JLL Capital Markets announced that it has arranged $21.65 million in refinancing for The Lexington, a multihousing community consisting of 50 apartments across two, five-story buildings in Hoboken, New Jersey.
JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, JDA Group, LLC, to secure the 10-year loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo lender.
Constructed in 2007, the 100 percent-occupied property spans across 7th St., between Adams St. and Grand St. with a central courtyard separating the two buildings.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Michael Klein and Director Matthew Pizzolato.
“We were excited to be a part of this transaction and help our client take advantage of these historically low interest rates,” said Pizzolato. “The agencies continue to be the most competitive lender for stabilized multihousing product, and we were able work with Freddie Mac to lock in a competitive interest rate for 10-years while also achieving full term interest only.”
