The project. The $6M project was financed by New York’s Piermont Bank and the location is now officially celebrating its grand opening.
The deal, designed to ensure the long term success of the project, was spearheaded by Piermont Bank. Says Rob Rynarzewski, Head of Commercial Real Estate, Piermont Bank, “Piermont was able to work with Alan at StorageBlue to creatively structure an interest-only loan that would give him the time needed to lease-up his newest facility in Garfield. This is another example of how the Piermont team is able to think outside of the box for our clients. We also believe it is about building a long-term relationship that will support each other’s growth.”

With an entrepreneurial culture, where decisions are made quickly, consistently, and diligently, they offer clients the peace of mind with our certainty in strong execution and quick turnaround.
