Newmark Capital Markets is pleased to announce that it has arranged a $57 million loan on behalf of Bridgeton Holdings to facilitate the completion and delivery of the 171-key Walker Hotel Tribeca, located at 396 Broadway. The Newmark Capital Markets team - led by Jordan Roeschlaub and Dustin Stolly and accompanied by Nick Scribani, Chris Kramer and Bob Tonnessen - successfully arranged the financing with BoI Federal. Bridgeton Holdings was represented by CEO Atit Jariwala, Managing Director Akash Sharma and VP of Development, Conor O’Byrne.
The building will be Bridgeton’s second Walker Hotel in New York City, with the first in Greenwich Village. The landmarked property stands prominently at the corner of Walker and Broadway, offering unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline from floors 7 to 10. The 10-story former office property has frontages on Broadway, Walker Street and Cortlandt Alley, making it one of the very few buildings in Manhattan to have two street corners, allowing for maximum exposure and visibility. The property will also be home to Blue Bottle Coffee on the ground floor, with additional food and beverage outlets both on the ground level and rooftop-as well as a speakeasy bar in the cellar. The hotel location within Tribeca’s historic neighborhood affords guests immediate access to shopping, restaurants, art galleries, boutique stores, bars and live music venues.
“Located in the heart of Tribeca, The Walker will provide visitors and members of the local community with a new exciting place to visit and enjoy,” said Mr. Stolly.
“The Walker is a noteworthy addition to Tribeca, a neighborhood resonating with the downtown-oriented demographic that will fill the hotel,” noted Mr. Roeschlaub.
