New York City — Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP (HFF) has secured $200 million in financing for the acquisition and pre-development of a 19,684-square-foot development site at 151 East 60th St., which is located at Lexington Avenue across from Bloomingdale’s in Manhattan.
The undeveloped parcel has zoning square footage that will accommodate up to 350,000 square feet; development is slated to begin in March 2017. Working on behalf of Kuafu Properties, HFF placed the floating-rate loan with Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies.
Loan proceeds will facilitate the purchase of the fee simple interest in the property and fund pre-development costs towards construction of a luxury residential tower with approximately 40,000 square feet of retail space. Christopher Peck and Jay Marshall led HFF’s debt placement team.
