Kushner Cos. borrows $400M to finance multi-family biz plan

Kushner Companies, a diversified real estate organization headquartered in New York, announced brisk financing activity across its portfolio of properties — totaling $395.8 million — for the first quarter of 2015.

The announcement was made by Kushner Companies’ CEO Jared Kushner.

Kushner has financed 3,800 apartments in 50 buildings.

This activity was centered in the multifamily portion of the firm’s holdings, and includes more than 3,800 apartment units and nearly fifty buildings — affirming what is expected to be a strong year for financing in the multifamily space.

• Bank United provided $84 million in loans to finance 16 buildings containing 291 apartment units and five retail properties located throughout Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Murray Hill, East Village and Greenwich Village, as well as the Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. The loan closed March 25th and covered a total of sixteen buildings.

• New York Community Bank refinanced seven Manhattan multifamily buildings in Soho, Greenwich Village and the East Village totaling $46.2 million. The seven buildings contain a total of 118 apartment units.

• Signature Bank provided $97.7 million in loans to refinance nine apartment buildings containing 182 units in the East Village.

• MC-Five Mile Commercial Mortgage Finance provided $89.2 million of 10-year, fixed rate loans that closed March 13th for a portfolio of 2,457 apartment units located in Ohio.

• PNC Bank and Freddie Mac led $42.8 million in financing for 2 properties containing 338 apartment units located in Hasbrouck Heights and Lodi, New Jersey. The loan closed March 17th.

• Bank United provided $35.9 million January 9 to finance 4 buildings containing 143 multifamily units in Astoria, Queens.

“Our financing activity for the first quarter of 2015 approached $400 million—all of that for multifamily properties, which we think speaks to both the strength of this asset class and our ability to execute on business plans to make improvements and build long term value at these properties,” said Kushner Cos. CEO Jared Kushner.
