Joint venture led by SHVO with Deutsche Finance America and BLG Capital acquired the 200,000-square-foot property

March 04, 2020

NEW YORK, March 4, 2020 — JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has secured $210 million in acquisition financing for 530 Broadway, a nearly 200,000-square-foot mixed-use building in one of New York City’s most desirable neighborhoods.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, a SHVO-led joint venture that included Deutsche Finance America and BLG Capital Ltd., to place the loan with LoanCore Capital LLC. The borrowers purchased the property from Wharton Property Advisors and Thor Equities in a separate transaction.

The 11-story 530 Broadway was designed by Brunner & Tryon and constructed in 1898. The building totals 197,637 square feet of mostly office space and is fully leased to significant tenants, including Anomaly, JKR, Knotel, Skechers and Club Monaco.

SHVO, Deutsche Finance and BLG Capital have partnered on the acquisition of six other properties in the past 18 months, including 685 Fifth Avenue and 711 Fifth Avenue in New York City; The Raleigh and South Seas in Miami Beach, Fla.; and 9200 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The JLL Capital Markets professionals overseeing the financing transaction include Michael Tepedino, David Sitt and Robert Tonnessen.

“We are thrilled to work with Michael Shvo and his partners Deutsche Finance America and BLG Capital,” Tepedino said. “530 Broadway is a super-prime SoHo property, and it will certainly be a valuable part of this team’s portfolio.”
