Queens-based firm Pistilli Realty has secured a $158.8 million New York Community Bank loan for a 17-property portfolio in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island, according to city records.
The properties in the package include 268-270 West 12th Street and 226-228 West 4th Street in the West Village, 182-186 Franklin Street in Brooklyn, 31-19 Newtown Avenue, 35-01 30th Avenue, 26-80 30th Street, 32-90 36th Street, 34-06 32nd Street, 28-07 38th Street in Astoria, 38-15 Bowne Street, 140-37/59 Ash Avenue in Flushing, 41-06 Case Street in Elmhurst, 47-30/50 59th Street in Woodside, 58-35 Granger Street in Corona, 19-02 Whitestone Expressway in Whitestone, 70 Glen Street in Glen Cove and 303 Merrick Road in Lynbrook.
The loan amounts on the properties start at $1 million. The largest mortgage is for the 47-30 59th Street property in Flushing, which has a value of $27.9 million. The loan replaces a $136.2 million mortgage, also from New York Community Bank.

Earlier this month, Pistilli closed on its acquisition of a multifamily building in the Bronx. The firm bought 155 Grand Concourse, a six-story, 139,000 s/f building in Mount Eden, for $29.8 million. The company acquired the property from the estate of late landlord Harry Silverstein.
Pistilli is a family-run firm focused on Astoria. Its portfolio includes 25 residential properties in the neighborhood, the largest of which is 45-02 Ditmars Boulevard, a six-story, 201-unit building.
