Prudential Mortgage Capital Company provided a $71 million loan through its Fannie Mae DUS platform for Olympia House, a 22-story, mixed-use property located in midtown Manhattan. Prudential Mortgage Capital Company is the commercial mortgage lending business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU).
The seven-year, full term interest only, fixed rate loan allows the borrower to refinance the property with cash out above the current loan amount. Built in 1964, it consists of 240 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, 60 of which are subject to rent stabilization, and 12,170 square feet of commercial space. Located in the Stuyvesant/Turtle Bay submarket, Olympia House is situated on East 44
Street, across from the United Nations headquarters and two blocks from Grand Central Station. The borrower was represented by Bob Bakhchi and Jonathan Aghravi of Hybrid Capital.
“The multifamily sector continues to be a strong performer in the market, particularly in New York City. The centralized location of Olympia House combined with the ongoing demand for rental properties makes this an extremely attractive transaction,” said Evan Williams, a director with Prudential Mortgage Capital Company’s New York office, who led the transaction. “We are pleased that our partnership with Hybrid Capital helped bring this transaction to a successful close. We look forward to providing many more financings in the future.”
