Berkadia announces it has secured debt for the refinance of The Carter @ 4250, a 300-unit apartment community located in Norcross, Georgia, on behalf of Miami-based One Real Estate Investment (OREI). In addition, Berkadia also sourced a capital group to recapitalize the sponsor’s equity partner.
Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg of Berkadia Boca Raton and Managing Director Brad Williamson of Berkadia Miami arranged a $33.12 loan through Freddie Mac. Chinmay Bhatt, Noam Franklin and Cody Kirkpatrick of Berkadia JV Equity & Structured Capital lined up an equity partner, MLG Capital, to complete the equity stack for OREI.
Freddie Mac provided a 10-year, floating-rate loan with a competitive rate and five years of interest-only. MLG Capital contributed $16.55 million in equity to the deal.
“The Carter underwent an extensive value-add program by OREI prior to its recapitalization,” said Williamson. “We are excited to see OREI continue its plan and create value at the property for both the tenants and the new equity partner.”
“OREI has continued to grow its multifamily portfolio and is now over 5,000 units in Texas and the Southeast,” said Jeronimo Hirschfeld, CEO of One Real Estate Investment CEO. “In an effort to capitalize on this dynamic market and deliver superior returns to our investors while still maintaining our portfolio, we opted to recapitalize a strong performing asset in an excellent submarket of Atlanta.”
Berkadia has arranged debt and equity for OREI’s multifamily portfolio expansion several times over the past two years.
