The Upper West Side property, 33 West End Apartments, is a 211-unit residential community that comprises a mix of affordable and market-rate units with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment layouts. Built in 2006, the community also houses more than 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and resident amenities including a fitness center, tenant lounge, bus service to the train station and an outdoor terrace.
Built in 2010, the 89-unit Port 10 Apartments is located at 303 10th Ave. in Chelsea and houses a mix of 71 market-rate units and 18 designated affordable units. The 13-story property features resident amenities including a resident lounge, roof deck, fitness center and bike storage, as well as an additional 8,000 square feet of retail space.
“This refinancing was structured to address the issue that a lot of NYC property owners are facing, an upcoming period where taxes will increase drastically as the 421-a benefits expire,” C.W. Early, managing director at JLL, told Multi-Housing News. Early led the JLL Affordable Housing Capital Markets team that represented the borrower in the refinancing.
“A long-term, fixed-rate execution through the benefit expiration period, often mixed with a long interest-only period, gives the owner certainty of their obligations and does not force them to have to refinance while taxes are increasing. The current low interest rates for long-term debt also help make this structure very attractive.”
