JLJ Capital has agreed to provide a $57 million loan to Parkview Management [aka 329 LLC] for completion of a mixed-use 16-story tower at 329 Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
“Williamsburg remains one of the most popular neighborhoods in Brooklyn and continues to draw young professionals and aging hipsters who want all the borough has to offer while remaining close to Manhattan,” said Jonathan Lewis, founder and CEO of JLJ Capital.
“We’re very happy to be working with 329 LLC, whose principle is an experienced developer with more than 20 years of expertise in this area, to get this exciting project completed.”
The new project is next door to the landmark St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church offering access to the M, J, and Z subway lines.
When completed 105,364 s/f building will include 63 apartment units and almost 60,000 s/f of retail space.
The first floor will be devoted to retail space, the second floor to a commercial office, with three additional floors of community facilities.
Net leasable residential space totals more than 45,000 s/f with units, which range in size from studios to three-bedroom apartments, located on floors six through 12.
There will also be a number of common areas such as decks and terraces, below grade amenities, and a sub-cellar parking garage for 50 vehicles. In addition, the project, which is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2020, will offer residents more than one half of an acre of outdoor space.
The building’s owner plans to apply for a 421(a) tax exemption. That regulation gives landlords tax credits in return for leasing 30 percent of the building’s apartments at “affordable” rents as defined by state regulations.
