In advance of the now-postponed trial between Gawker and Hulk Hogan, the media company just revealed in a financial disclosure that it took an $8 million loan from Silicon Valley Bank to pay for its new Flatiron office at 2 West 17th Street.

The move which Commercial Observer first reported last September, is scheduled for later this month.
