CBRE/NE Multi-Housing Debt & Structured Finance Team Arranges $16.125M Financing for The Meadows

180-unit apartment community financed in Chelmsford, MA


BOSTON (Mar. 31, 2014) — CBRE/New England’s Capital Markets team announced today that they secured acquisition financing totaling $16.125 million for the purchase of The Meadows, a 180-unit garden-style community located in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. The buyer, a joint venture between Taurus Investment Holdings of Boston, MA and Water Street/PhilMor Real Estate Investments, LLC of Newton, MA, purchased the multifamily asset for $20,000,000.


CBRE/NE’s First Vice President of Multi-Housing Debt & Structured Finance, John Kelly, worked on behalf of Taurus and Water Street/PhilMor to secure the financing. “It was a pleasure working with the sponsors and their team. CBRE/NE’s Multifamily Debt & Structured Finance platform gives our clients’ superior access to the right capital, allowing them to seamlessly execute their business plans.”


“The acquisition of The Meadows is a follow-on transaction to the 2013 purchase of Cabot Crossing in Lowell, MA,” commented Taurus Investment Holdings’ CEO Peter Merrigan. Both properties represent quality Class B assets located within one of I-495’s strongest job markets. Taurus and Water Street/PhilMor will look to build off the previous owner’s success with the assets by making a strategic capital investment into each of the properties.” 


The community, located approximately 1.5 miles from I-495, was constructed in 1987 with an average unit size of 668 square feet. The Meadows consists of 10 three-story buildings with a unit mix of 18 studio, 42 one-bedroom/one-bathroom, and 120 two-bedroom/one-bathroom units. There are 375 parking spaces (2.0 spaces per unit) at the property.
