Property is situated in Manhattan’s Revitalized Harlem Neighborhood
Hackensack, NJ, September 06, 2013 – Silver Arch Capital Partners has announced the closing of a $1.125 million loan for 27 West 120 Street in New York City. The borrower, 200 Lenox Avenue, LLC, a special-purpose entity, will utilize the funding to refinance an existing first mortgage.
“This is a unique property situated in a Harlem neighborhood that has been rapidly revitalized, driven by federal and city policies,” said Jeffrey Wolfer, president of the Hackensack, NJ-based loan originator. “The loan will enable the borrower to position the property to repay the loan through conventional financing.”
The property is a five-story mixed-use walk-up with 6,112 square feet of gross building space. It includes two residential units, and 3,688 square feet of commercial space including a ground floor unit, a duplex unit on the second and third floors and 1,250 square feet below grade.
“The borrower has leased the ground floor and duplex commercial space to an experienced restaurant operator who is completing renovations at their own expense and will open for business immediately” said Wolfer. “The commercial space presented an opportunity with upside potential for this property.”
