55-unit apartment community financed in West Roxbury
Boston – September 22, 2015 – CBRE/New England's Multifamily Debt & Structured Finance group announced it arranged $7.5 million in acquisition financing for the $9.4 million acquisition of 218 and 250 Spring Street in West Roxbury. An affiliate of Yee Enterprises closed on the 55-unit, two-building multifamily property in September.
CBRE/NE Senior Vice President John Kelly and Financial Analyst Sam Dylag, on behalf of the buyer, secured financing through a local bank. “We leveraged our strong banking relationships and were able to arrange a financing solution that aligned with our client's business plans,” stated John Kelly. “The lender emerged from several local and regional banks to offer excellent terms and exceptional service.”
“We were pleased with the response of the local debt markets on this transaction,” said Ivan Yee of Yee Enterprises. “It allowed us to leverage our acquisition with very attractive financing terms that would have been challenging to obtain without the assistance of CBRE/NE.”

The portfolio consists of two, four‐story buildings constructed in 1968. Both buildings have brick exteriors and off-street surface parking.
