The building, located on North 12th Street in Brooklyn overlooking McCarren Park, was fully leased and occupied within just five weeks of obtaining final C of O. Amenities include a gym, lounge and full-service doorman.
David Eisen, Vice President of Eastern Union Funding, one of the largest commercial mortgage brokerage firms in the US, was able to secure a long term fixed rate loan in the low three percent, replacing the existing floating rate construction loan on this project which was over 5% prior to this takeout.
“David was very dedicated and successful,” Schwartz said. “What sets him apart is his understanding of what makes a lender tick. He routinely closes deals with lenders, who may not offer said loan products, but because he’s consistently bringing them the best deals out there, their vision of value lines up with his.”
Never one to turn his nose at a hairier deal, Eisen recently closed a $17 million bridge loan on a vacant building in NYC, as well as a non-recourse $2.4 million IMD status multifamily in Bushwick and $4 million non-recourse loan on an eight-unit walkup in Park Slope.
“Because of the strength of the area and the market, we got the bank to agree to underwrite and commit the deal prior to full stabilization,” Eisen said. “The project is in a peak location of a market that recently went through a strong and positive transformation.”
