Clipper Equity has landed $105 million of construction financing to build a new multifamily project in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood.

Valley National Bank provided the loan on Clipper’s planned 296-unit building at 2201 Beverly Road in a deal that closed March 20.  The project is part of a renovation Clipper is undergoing of a former Sears department store building, Crain’s New York Business reported Tuesday.
