Cooper-Horowitz’s Richard Horowitz and Justin Horowitz negotiated the debt.

Robert Weisz’s RPW acquired the assets in May 2018, paying $16 million. Since the purchase, RPW has made roughly $5 million in capital improvements, including the addition of new lobbies at both properties as well as fitness centers and conference rooms, sources said.

The four-story, 94,654-square-foot building at 925 Westchester Avenue was constructed in 1977 and is currently 78 percent leased. The four-story, 97,223-square-foot property at 1025 Westchester Avenue was also erected in 1977 and is 86 percent occupied.

ULLICO also teamed up with RPW last July, providing a $210 million, 10-year refinance for its office property 275 Madison Avenue, as first reported by CO. Cooper-Horowitz also arranged the financing for that transaction.

Officials at RPW did not return a request for comment. Officials at ULLICO and Cooper-Horowitz declined to comment.
