Located at 212 Durham Avenue, around 35 miles southwest of Midtown Manhattan, The Kempson is slated for completion in early 2026. The property’s amenities will include a saltwater pool, a fitness center, a resident lounge, a dog park, a pet spa, barbecue grilling areas and electric vehicle charging stations. It will also have green building elements including rooftop solar panels. 

“Closing a financing of this magnitude and building a project of The Kempson’s quality and scale in this current financing environment is a testament to our relationships and our history of successful execution,” Daniel Klein, president of Klein Enterprises, said in a statement. “We believe strongly in the demand for Class A multifamily housing going forward, and we understand how long-standing successful relationships with municipalities, partners and lenders alike are essential to bring our vision to life.”

Northwestern Mutual did not immediately return a request for comment.
