Caspi Development has nabbed $24 million of commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) debt to refinance a Westchester County office property, Commercial Observer has learned.

Bryan Manz, Emil DePasquale and George Pektor of Black Bear Capital Partners arranged the financing package.

Caspi has invested nearly $3 million in capital improvements to the 60,000-square-foot office complex, located at 235-245 Main Street, the last three years, including the construction of Fogo de Chão, an upscale Brazilian steakhouse. 

Office tenants include Chicago Title Insurance Co., MCIMetro Access Transmission Services, Babchik & Young, Martin Clearwater & Bell, and Gary E. Bashian.

Officials for White Plains-based Caspi Development did not immediately respond for comment on the loan. Morgan Stanley declined to comment.
