JLL Capital Markets arranges $70m refinancing for 108-unit NYC mixed-use development
JLL Capital Markets has arranged a $70.635 million Fannie Mae loan for SMA Equities to refinance 200 East 23rd St., a newly completed, 20-story mixed-use property in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park neighborhood.
JLL represented the borrower in negotiating a 10-year, interest-only fixed-rate Fannie Mae loan through Fannie Mae’s Near-Stabilization program. This will be the first property with a Passive House certification financed by Fannie Mae. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, a Fannie Mae DUS® Lender.
JLL previously arranged SMA Equities’ acquisition financing in 2015, when the developer purchased the site, and subsequently secured construction financing in 2021 to fund the development costs.
