New York Life Insurance Real Estate Investors Originated $264,524,000 Mortgage Loan Secured by a Portfolio of Five Class a Multifamily Properties in Dallas, Atlanta, and South Florida

New York, August 10, 2015—New York Life Real Estate Investors announced today the financing, on behalf of institutional investors, of a portfolio of five Class A multifamily properties located in Dallas, Atlanta and South Florida.

The $264,524,000 floating rate loan has a term of four years with three one-year extension options. The financing was a part of the acquisition of Associated Estates Realty Corp by a real estate fund managed by Brookfield Asset Management.

“New York Life Real Estate Investors was pleased to work with a strong sponsor such as Brookfield Asset Management on such a significant transaction. The timeline was challenging as we took the deal from the initial request to closing in about 60 days. We pride ourselves on understanding the real estate and getting the deal closed on time,” said Randall Hall, Senior Director in the Atlanta office of New York Life Real Estate Investors, who spearheaded the loan origination. “There was a lot of great cooperation between Brookfield, CBRE and New York Life to accommodate one another’s needs in a compressed closing process.”

CBRE was the mortgage broker for the transaction.
