 “Our client in this transaction significantly improved the physical condition and operations of the property over a four year span in order to take advantage of attractive long-term fixed rate financing,” York said. “In an environment where most lenders are shying away from large transactions, Arbor thrives and continues to deliver liquidity to the market.”
