E.V.P. Janet Bortz Arranges Exclusive Sale of 77 Units on 4.2 Acres in Orange County
Woodbridge, N.J., May 24, 2022 – The Kislak Company, Inc. announced the recent sale of Towne Terrace Apartments, a 77-unit apartment complex on 4.2 acres at 50 Cantrell Avenue in Middletown, Orange County, New York, for $10,850,000.
Kislak marketed the property on an exclusive basis with executive vice president Janet Bortz managing the assignment on behalf of the seller, Towne Terrace Partners, L.P. Ms. Bortz also procured the purchaser, Towne Terrace Apts., LLC.
Ms. Bortz commented, “Our marketing of Towne Terrace Apartments resulted in aggressive offers given the property’s 100% occupancy, its private scenic setting, large units including duplexes, and upside in rents. The property was off the market within two weeks of the offering.”
Constructed in the 1970’s, the property had been family owned and managed for approximately 50 years prior to closing. It is a classic brick garden-style complex located at the end of a quiet residential cul de sac. The property includes four-two story buildings with 77 units – 42 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedroom units and five three-bedroom units – ranging in size from 600 to 1,200 square feet. Amenities include laundry facilities, tenant storage areas, and on-site parking. Recent improvements include new gas boilers, new windows in 50 units and a new roof.
At the time of closing, the property was 100% occupied consistent with its historically high occupancy.
The property is well-located only a half-mile from route 211 in downtown Middletown with area houses of worship nearby, and it is only two blocks from a new YMCA facility. The property’s ideal location gives residents easy access to other major thoroughfares as well including Route 17, Interstate 84, and the New York State Thruway. Middletown is west of Newburgh and north of Goshen.
The Orange County area has been experiencing strong population and economic growth over the past few years. Stewart International Airport is only 20 minutes east of Middletown giving it a strong business and tourist position in the region. The recent announcement of a Legoland entertainment complex, the construction of an Amy’s Foods facility in Goshen, and the announcement of a one million square foot Amazon.com facility Montgomery will each generate employment, population, and economic growth.
