Short Hills, New Jersey (March 15, 2013) – Investors Bank’sCommercial Real Estate Finance Group recently provided $44.1 million in commercial mortgage financing to McKinney Properties, which used the funds to acquire a 674-bed, high-rise student housing complex in New Brunswick, N. J.

The 12-story structure, known as Rockoff Hall, serves Rutgers University, the State University of New Jersey, and the building is within walking distance of the College Avenue and Cook Douglas campuses. New Brunswick Development, a non-profit real estate development company that revitalized the city’s downtown, built the structure in 2005 and sold the property to McKinney Properties and Virtus Real Estate Capital. This is McKinney’s first institutional joint venture relationship, and Investors Bank provided a fixed-rate, five-year mortgage.

In announcing the completed transaction, Investors’ Chief Lending Officer Rich Spengler said, “We have the capital resources to finance a loan of this size and the capabilities to complete the financing in a timely manner. McKinney Properties appreciated our willingness to close the transaction within a very tight timeframe.”

Rockoff Hall contains 2-and 3-bedroom units, and the building is named in honor of Alvin J. Rockoff, who is a 1949 graduate of Rutgers College and a longtime advocate for the revitalization of the City of New Brunswick.
