JLL secures $600M refinancing loan for HFZ portfolio

​Capital remains available for high-quality multifamily assets, especially in robust markets like New York City, as residents continue to drive demand for luxury product. JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured $600 million in refinancing for a four-property portfolio of Manhattan condo buildings owned by HFZ Capital Group. JPMorgan Chase and Oaktree Capital provided the loan.
