Meridian Capital Group, America’s most active dealmaker, negotiated $48 million in CMBS financing for an office building in the Soho neighborhood of New York, NY.
The 10-year CMBS loan features full-term interest-only payments. Meridian Vice President, Isaac Filler, who is based in the company’s New York City headquarters, negotiated the financing.
Constructed in 1900, the property is located at 64 Wooster Street on one of Manhattan’s iconic cobblestone streets and features large windows and intricately detailed carvings on its façade, blending in seamlessly with the nostalgic architecture and ambiance of the Soho neighborhood. The property houses 10 tenants and includes four elevators, making it an efficient and elegant place to work.
64 Wooster Street is situated in the heart of Soho, a trendy, high-traffic neighborhood known for its stunning cast-iron architecture, ornate pre-war buildings, cobblestone streets and its high-fashion retailers, chic eateries, and creative hot spots. The property is easily accessible via a multitude of subway lines, including the A, C, and E at the Spring Street Station, the 6 at the Spring Street Station, the N, W, and R at the Prince Street Station, and the 1 at the Canal Street Station.
“Assets such as 64 Wooster are not only iconic but irreplaceable and will continue to be sought by lenders given the high demand and limited supply of boutique office space in Soho,” said Mr. Filler.
