New York — Pembrook Capital Management LLC has secured a $20 million first mortgage loan for the acquisition of a retail property located in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The property is currently a three-story, 15,000-square-foot vacant retail asset with the potential for residential development. The undisclosed borrower plans to lease the current three floors to a retail tenant and redevelop the property for residential use by adding five additional floors of apartments. Upon completion, the new property is expected to be eight stores with 31,000 square feet of rentable space. Terence Baydala of Pembrook arranged the financing.
