Washington Mews Secures Construction Loan of $12.5 Million For 60 Units In Suffern
Washington Mews LLC of Suffern secured a $12.5 million dollar construction loan to construct 60 market rate apartments at 15 Washington Avenue in Suffern. With all approvals in place, Washington Mews LLC, led by Don Brennan, is prepared to break ground on a 65,000 square foot apartment structure on 1.36 acres, zoned MR-50, and estimated to cost $15 million dollars to construct.
The developer sought and received tax benefits through the Rockland IDA, including approximately $157,000 in mortgage recording tax exemptions, and $586,000 in sales and use tax exemptions.
The development is considered to be a “Transit Oriented Development” (TOD) because of its proximity to the Suffern train station and village center. Numerous variances for lot coverage, FAR, and parking were granted, and the original plan for 48 units was increased to 60. Only 23 units were allowed as a matter of right under the original zoning.
The construction loan was obtained through Columbia Bank of Fair Lawn, NJ with the Rockland County IDA acting as “Agency” for the purpose of the recording tax exemption.
