NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company, announced that it has closed a $33,900,000 loan on behalf of Larken Associates for Copper Chase Oaks and Preserve, a recently completed 239-unit Class A multi-family rental complex comprised of two phases located at 2900 and 3145 Honey Drive, York, PA. The new permanent loan was provided by Berkshire Bank and used to refinance the original construction loan which was also held by Berkshire Bank.

Phase I of the property, the Copper Chase Reserve, comprises 132 units which were built in 1983 and acquired and renovated by Larken in 2019. Phase II of the property, the Oaks of Copper Chase, comprises 107 newly constructed units in twelve 2-story buildings fully completed and fully leased since October 2021. Phase II added a list of brand-new amenities available for use by residents of both phases, including a swimming pool, community clubhouse with lounge, state – a state-of-the-art fitness center, dog wash, bark park, walking/biking trails, and playground. Each one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment comes with modern, high-end finishes, washer/dryer, and dishwasher.

“The Larken team has done an incredible job, from recognizing the opportunity to executing the business plan, throughout the pandemic. We are delighted to have worked with them and their lender to ensure the success of the project through this refinancing,” said Paul Fried.

“Greystone did an excellent job advising us on the refinance. We are delighted to continue working with them and with Berkshire Bank,” said David Gardner, President and CEO of Larken Associates.
