NEW YORK CITY-Acting on behalf of the Chetrit Group and Read Property Group, both based here, Meridian Capital has secured $28.2 million of first mortgage financing. The financing will go toward the acquisition of 138 luxury residential condominium units and 22,400 square feet of retail space in the Plaza at Oceanside in Pompano Beach, FL.

Ladder Capital Finance, formed last year to focus on the commercial real estate sector, provided the non-recourse loan with a two-year term; the rate was not disclosed. Meridian is one of Ladder’s founding and strategic partners, along with TowerBrook Capital Partners, based here, and GI Partners, based in Menlo Park, CA.
