Hall Structured Finance closes loan to refinance The MC Hotel in Montclair, NJ
Dallas-based Hall Structured Finance (HSF) has closed a first mortgage bridge loan to refinance the MC Hotel, an Autograph Collection by Marriott property located in Montclair, NJ. The MC Hotel was developed by a joint venture between The Hampshire Companies and The Pinnacle Companies and opened in August 2019. Aparium Hotel Group manages the property. In connection with the closing of the loan, an adjacent restaurant site has been acquired for which a new upscale restaurant is being designed, adding to the hotel’s existing signature food and beverage venues.
Located in downtown Montclair, the 159-room boutique hotel is in a business and entertainment center known for its restaurants, retailers, and arts and entertainment venues. The hotel features multiple meeting and event spaces, including a 3,000-sq.-ft. ballroom that can accommodate up to 200 guests. The hotel features its signature restaurant Allegory, and Alto, the only rooftop indoor/outdoor bar and lounge in Montclair, located on the ninth floor. In addition, the hotel features an art collection on display throughout the property, showcasing both local and international artists.
Hampshire and Pinnacle are also partners on the MC Residences, currently under construction on the same block. The future MC Residences will include 40 high-end multi-family rental units, a 3,500-sq.-ft. food hall and a 4,000-sq.-ft. streetside outdoor plaza.
