MORRISTOWN, N.J., September 23, 2020JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $25 million refinancing for the fully leased, 706,487-square-foot distribution center at 500 Meadowland Pkwy. in the suburban New York City community of Secaucus, New Jersey.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, 500 Meadowland Parkway, L.L.C., to place a fixed-rate loan with Hartford Investment Management Company (HIMCO). JLL will service the loan, proceeds of which will be used to refinance the existing debt.

The property is situated on 32.475 acres within the 750-acre Harmon Cove development, which was developed by the borrower. Harmon Cove is three miles from Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel and proximate to Port Newark-Elizabeth and the Newark Liberty International Airport. 500 Meadowland Pkwy. is accessible via multiple New Jersey Turnpike exits, and multiple New Jersey arterials that connect to Interstates 80, 95 and 280 are easily accessible from the property.

Completed in 1977, the building has been renovated and expanded multiple times over the years. The original tenant, a large retailer that has occupied the property since 1978, uses the property as a distribution warehouse and office space. The building features 24- to 26-foot clear heights, 200 loading docks and substantial truck and car parking on site.

The JLL Capital Markets Debt Placement team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Thomas Didio.
