Concord landed $33 million in debt from Western Alliance Bank to refinance a handful of previous loans We Care took out on the property, along with securing a $4.9 million gap mortgage, according to property records.

We Care has owned the building between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue since 1994 and partnered with Choice Hotels and Concord to open the 56,500-square-foot hotel in 2015, Real Estate Weekly reported. It was We Care’s first hotel project at the time, after the company transitioned away from its manufacturing business. 

The Chelsea property was also the first Cambria-branded hotel Choice set up in New York City. Choice spent around $141 million to develop the location along with two others in the state, according to Choice and Real Estate Weekly

Spokespeople from Concord, Choice and Western Alliance did not immediately respond to requests for comment. We Care Trading could not immediately be reached for comment. 

It was not immediately clear who brokered the sale or provided financing.
