Recapitalization for Luxury Residential Building in New York’s East Village

JLL arranges $63M recapitalization financing for Magnum’s 62 Avenue B

NEW YORK, August 25, 2015 — A newly revamped residential building bests the status quo in the East Village community. On behalf of Magnum Real Estate Group, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured $63 million in recapitalization financing for 62 Avenue B, an 81-unit residential building which includes market-leading finishes and a full amenity package. Santander provided the $44 million senior loan while TPG provided $19 million in mezzanine financing.

Managing Director Aaron Appel, Senior Vice President Michael Diaz, Vice President Mark Kindrachuck, and Analyst Brian Buglione led the JLL team on the transaction.

“This property is among the top one percent of luxury rental buildings in the East Village,” said Appel. “Located in close proximity to entertainment, transportation, and corporate centers, 62 Avenue B gives residents the ability to live luxuriously in the most coveted city in the United States.  It certainly stirred significant interest from lenders eager to play their part in this prime asset.”

The 81,094-square-foot residential building, known as 62 Avenue B, is located in the heart of East Village. The property features a doorman, rooftop deck, fitness center, and bike storage. A best-in-class building, this property offers an ideal proximity to retail, corporate, and entertainment environments while also providing security and luxury to residents in the East Village.
