  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) September 23, 2011 - Adam Mermelstein, a principal of TreeTop Development, has announced the purchase of a 115-unit rental apartment complex located at 135 Prince Street in the Central Ward district of Newark, N.J.

    The locally-based developer purchased the property - named Willie T. Wright Apartments - and has plans to invest $1.5 million in renovations for the complex, including upgraded building systems, common areas, unit interiors and site landscaping.
    Richard Kelin of Feinstein, Raiss, Kelin and Booker represented the buyers as legal counsel.

    The deal is representative of a unique investment strategy implemented TreeTop Development to take advantage of today's market conditions by purchasing high-performing and well-located HUD apartment assets. The aggressive philosophy has enabled TreeTop to grow its portfolio of rental apartments to more than 1,250 apartments in Newark and over 2,000 units in Essex County, N.J.

    "Two years ago we examined real estate acquisition opportunities to discover new and creative avenues that could strengthen our presence in local markets and grow our portfolio" says Mr. Mermelstein. "Purchasing high-quality HUD apartment assets emerged as an extremely viable niche market and has enabled us to significantly expand our company by adding well-performing rental communities at competitive prices that immediately generate capital.

    "Since we began utilizing this creative acquisition approach, we've added nearly 1,000 rental homes to our portfolio and solidified our place as a leading property owner, manager and developer in the Essex County marketplace."

    Situated near the Newark Court House, Willie T. Wright Apartments features one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes housed in a three-story garden-style apartment complex.
