NEW YORK, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a leading commercial real estate finance firm, announced it has closed $67,450,000 in bridge financing secured by a portfolio of five (5) multifamily properties on behalf of Conquest Housing and BLVD Communities, the Sponsor. The refinancing transaction, which was brought to Greystone by Cushman & Wakefield, and funded by a Greystone Monticello affiliate, comprises a 619-unit portfolio of Section 8 HAP properties across various states including New Jersey, Arkansas, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
