The five-year mortgage closed on March 26 and replaces a 2011 loan from ING Real Estate Finance, which sold $1.6 billion of its debt to Wells Fargo in August 2013.

The 77-story mixed-use tower between West 56th and West 57th Street contains 235 apartment units, 211,617 square feet of office space and 3,036 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The 531,657-square-foot property was completed in 1986.

An L&L representative declined to comment on the financing. Representatives for Aareal were unavailable for comment.
