HFF secures $25 million financing for Philadelphia-area luxury multi-housing community


FLORHAM PARK, NJ – February 9, 2017 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has secured $25 million in financing for The Station at Manayunk, a 149-unit luxury multi-housing community in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Working on behalf of J.G. Petrucci Company Inc., HFF placed the 15-year loan with Principal Real Estate Investors.  Loan proceeds were used to refinance the construction loan on the property.

Completed in 2014, The Station at Manayunk is located at 1 Parker Road in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia, immediately adjacent to the Ivy Ridge SEPTA train station.  The property’s 149 luxury units average 820 square feet with amenities such as open-concept floor plans, nine-foot ceilings, walk-in closets, private patios or balconies, full-size washers and dryers, faux wood flooring and gourmet kitchens.  The community features a fitness center, bike share program and numerous landscaped outdoor spaces, including two picnic areas with grilling stations.  In addition, the property is adjacent to the Manayunk Canal and Towpath, an approximately two-mile trail that runs parallel to the Schuykill River and provides residents with a scenic destination for jogging, biking and fishing.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Jon Mikula.

“There is a lack of new luxury multifamily housing near transit in the Philadelphia area,” said Mikula.  “With a train stop immediately in front of the property, The Station at Manayunk has helped to fill the demand in the market, which was evidenced by the property’s quick lease-up.”
