Meridian Capital Group senior managing director Seth Grossman and senior vice president Sarah Kuebler arranged the financing on behalf of Blue Roc Premier Properties, which also manages the property.

“The term sheets were executed during the week of March 23. This was only days after the stock market bottomed, volatility and fear were at their peak and nearly all lenders were on the sidelines,” Grossman said in a prepared statement, adding that the lender stepped “at a critical time” to execute.
