The newly minted owner of 757 Third Avenue apparently financed its buy with a $205 million loan from New York Life Real Estate Investors, the life insurance company announced today.
The loan on the mixed-use office tower has a term of 15 years, according to a statement from New York Life.
A $98.8 million CMBS loan on 390 Park Avenue, owned by RFR Holding, has been sent to special servicing with the note facing imminent maturity default, according to a Trepp report based on recent servicer data. CWCapital Asset Management is listed as the special servicer.
The news comes despite the fact that the 234,240-square-foot building known as Lever House is 96 percent occupied with its debt service coverage ratio at 1.33x, the property’s latest financials show.
AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company provided $85 million in financing to RFR Holding for its acquisition and repositioning of the Holiday Inn Soho at 138 Lafayette Street, public records show.
The debt is divided into a $70 million “acquisition loan,” a $6 million “project loan” and a $9 million “building loan,” according to the loan documents.
