“We saw a unique opportunity to capitalize on the tremendous increase in value we had achieved, unique tax benefits,and wish to further improve the assets,” Jeffrey Weiskopf, chairman of White Eagle Property Group, said. “With Meridian’s expertise, we actualized our ability to return all original equity, give additional monies to investors and also inserted fresh capital for projects on the property level, further improving our investments and maintaining consistent cash flow.” 

NewPoint Real Estate Capital and Capital One Multifamily Finance provided the 10-year loan. The financing features a daily secured overnight financing rate-based rate and five-year interest-only period. 

Meridian Capital Group‘s Jacob Katz, Abe Hirsch, Zev Karpel, Daniel Hofstedter and Spencer Isen negotiated the financing.

“Given Mr. Spitz’s proven track record of increasing the bottom line in the multifamily industry and Mr. Weiskopf’s leadership in financial markets, we were able to custom-tailor highly accretive financing that reduced interest expense and provided an additional five years of interest-only payments,” Hirsch said.
