Newmark Knight Frank arranged a $205 million floating-rate loan for the refinance of 10 Jay Street in Brooklynon behalf of Glacier Global Partners and Triangle Assets.
The NKF team was led by Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub, vice chairmen and co-heads of Debt & Structured Finance, along with Dylan Kane, Chris Kramer, and Nick Scribani. The loan was provided by Natixis.
10 Jay Street is a 10-story, 222,228 s/f office and retail development in the Dumbo neighborhood.
Located directly on the East River waterfront and surrounded by the Brooklyn Bridge Park, it has a new glass façade, 23,000 s/f open floorplates, luxury rooftop terrace, and views of the Manhattan skyline. Sponsorship has transformed 10 Jay Street into a center for innovation and productivity, as well as a beautiful and unique landmark on one of New York City’s main waterways.
10 Jay Street will be the new headquarters location for Rent the Runway, who leased over 83,000 SF across floors 7-10, including 10,000 SF of outdoor space on the 10th floor. 10 Jay Street will also house the flagship NYC location for Soho Works, the co-working concept from Soho House, who leased 50,000 SF at the property. The new co-working outpost is conveniently located just a short walk from their Dumbo House location at Empire Stores.
“Sponsorship has done an incredible job transforming the old sugar refinery into the best creative office product in Dumbo. The waterfront views overlooking Brooklyn Bridge Park are second to none and the outdoor event space on the rooftop is a unique and significant demand driver,” said Stolly. “Over the past few years, Dumbo has received substantial investment and has really transformed from a traditional industrial neighborhood to a 24/7 live-work-play destination and an attractive alternative to Manhattan,” said Roeschlaub.
