Haven Court Apartments at 1 Haven Court is a 22-unit apartment complex in a quiet residential area that consists of four two-bedroom / one-bathroom apartments, 12 one-bedroom / one-bathroom apartments, and six studio apartments. The property had been held by the same ownership group since the 1970s.
“The sellers wanted to take advantage of strong investor demand that would allow them to garner attractive pricing and realize decades of appreciation,” said Michael Scrima, a Director at Redwood Realty Advisors.
The buyer is a private investor based in New Jersey who plans on upgrading and rebranding the building. “The new ownership recognized the opportunity to buy a rare investment asset in a highly sought after submarket,” added Thomas Gorman Jr., a Director at Redwood Realty Advisors. Scrima and Gorman represented both the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

Program Guide For Restaurant Revitalization Fund Available
SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman has announced details on application requirements, eligibility, and a program guide for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RFF). The restaurant industry has been among the hardest-hit sectors during the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help bring jobs back and revive the industry, the American Rescue Plan, signed into law by President Joe Biden, established the $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA will administer the funds to the hardest-hit small restaurants.
“Today, we are starting the process to help restaurants and bars across the country devastated by the pandemic, and this is our message: Help is here. With the launch of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, we’re prioritizing funding to the hardest-hit small businesses – irreplaceable gathering places in our neighborhoods and communities that need a lifeline now to get back on their feet,” said SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman. “And, thanks to clear directives from Congress, we’re rolling out this program to make sure that these businesses can meet payroll, purchase supplies, and get what they need in place to transition to today’s COVID-restricted marketplace.”
Administrator Guzman emphasized, “We’re also focused on ensuring that the RRF program’s application process is streamlined and free of burdensome, bureaucratic hurdles – while still maintaining robust oversight. Under my leadership, the SBA aims to be as entrepreneurial as the entrepreneurs we serve – and that means meeting every small business where they are, and giving them the support they need to recover, rebuild and thrive.”
