FLORHAM PARK, NJ – HFF announced today that it has secured $5.8 million in financing for Franklin Square Shopping Center, a 51,911-square-foot community shopping center on the border of Bloomfield and Belleville, New Jersey.   

Working exclusively on behalf of The Hampshire Companies, HFF placed the five-year, fixed-rate loan with a TriState Capital Bank.  Loan proceeds were used to refinance existing debt on the property.

Situated on 13.96 acres, the property is 100 percent leased to tenants such as Marshalls, Dots, The Children’s Place, Sprint and JP Morgan Chase.  The center is shadow-anchored by a Stop & Shop grocery store and is located approximately 10 miles west of Midtown Manhattan.      

The HFF team representing The Hampshire Companies was led by director Michael Klein and senior managing director Jon Mikula.

“The borrower needed to close this loan within a short time frame,” said Klein.  “TriState Capital stepped up with a very competitive rate and structure and was able to close the loan within 30 days.”
