Cronheim Mortgage has secured $49.5 million acquisition financing for a 634,495 s/f industrial property in Highstown, NJ.
Dev Morris, Allison Villamagna, and Andrew Stewart arranged permanent financing for the acquisition of the Modway Corporate Headquarters in Hightstown, NJ.
The 10-year loan was structured with interest-only financing for the entire term and was priced at 3.46 percent at 80 percent loan-to-cost.
The financing was arranged on behalf of the borrower, an affiliate of Modway Inc., which maintains its headquarters there.
Situated at 329 Wyckoff Mills Road, the 634,495 s/f state-of-the-art warehouse facility features 36 ft. clear ceiling heights, 111 dock doors, 153 trailer spaces, and 271 car parking spaces, all in a location that is adjacent and visible from the NJ Turnpike.

According to Stewart, “Modway is a fast-growing company and was able to acquire this property at a reasonable price. We recognized that and were able to help them save significant money by providing a high leverage, interest-only solution at an attractive rate that allows them the cash flow and flexibility to grow their business with a modest fixed-rate payment stream.”
