JLL secures $98.5 million loan for 22-12 Jackson Avenue

Construction loan green-lights new Long Island City condo development

​JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the company secured $98.5 million for the development of 22-12 Jackson Avenue, a forthcoming 182-unit condominium building in Long Island City's Court Square neighborhood. JLL represented a partnership between Adam America Real Estate and Vanke Holdings USA. Bank Leumi provided the loan.

Managing Directors Aaron Appel and Keith Kurland, and Senior Vice President Michael Diaz led the JLL team on the deal.

"Developers recognize the enormous potential for Long Island City as residents look for a more affordable option with direct access to Manhattan," said Appel. "Construction financing continues to be available for high-end developments that boast experienced sponsors who have pin-pointed consumer demand."

The proposed building will be 11 stories with 5,018 square feet of ground floor retail space. Its location in Long Island City puts it just 10 minutes from Grand Central Station and 15 minutes from Times Square via the 7 train.

The building will feature units ranging from studios to three bedrooms, some of which will include outdoor terrace space.
