Newmark is pleased to announce that its Debt & Structured Finance team has secured $23.5 million in refinancing on behalf of Stone Street Properties (SSP) for 16 East 18th Street in Manhattan. The Newmark team was led by Vice Chairmen Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub and included Senior Managing Director Daniel Fromm and Associate Director Josh Egert.
“This transaction provides SSP with flexible capital to complete its business plan,” said Mr. Stolly.
The property was acquired in 2015 and SSP embarked on a value-add business plan to transform the landmarked building into high-end, residential rental units. Each apartment spans a full floor with private elevator access. The ground-floor retail space is occupied by Paragon Sports under a long-term lease.
“We’re incredibly excited to see our vision through at 16 East 18th Street,” said Jeffrey Kaye, Founder & CEO at SSP. “We see this property as offering residents the best of the professional and cultural worlds that Manhattan has to offer.”
Mr. Fromm added, “After a lengthy cycle characterized predominantly by condo deliveries, there is an underserved market for larger, high-end rental apartments in trendy neighborhoods that also provide easy access to Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. 16 East 18th Street, located in the landmarked Ladies’ Mile historic district, uniquely meets this need.”
