MRC bullish on Queens
Madison Realty Capital (MRC) closed $66 million in financing for a 100,500 s/f retail and office property, a 24,000 s/f retail condominium, and an 88-car parking garage in Flushing, Queens.
The properties are adjacent to one another at the corner of Main Street and Sanford Avenue.
MRC structured a customized financing solution which enabled the borrower to recapitalize the properties from the special servicer who was managing the assets.
41-60 Main Street is a three-story mixed-use office and retail building with a tenant base of credit worthy tenants and high occupancy. The retail condo at 133-38 Sanford Avenue consists of 24,000 s/f over two floors.
Josh Zegen, co-founder of MRC, commented, “We have analyzed the Flushing market extensively and feel that it is among New York’s strongest, and these commercial assets are perfectly positioned to benefit from their stellar location at one of Flushing’s busiest corners.”
