CW Realty Secures $115M Financing on North Williamsburg Mixed-Use

CW Realty has secured $115 million of new financing on the Kent House, a mixed-use property in Brooklyn’s North Williamsburg. Yaakov Klein, who holds the leasehold interest in the property, closed on a $53-million loan from Bank of America last week. CW, which holds the property’s fee interest, received a 35-year, $61.7-million loan from Nuveen TIAA in July. 

CW’s permanent financing fully paid off the Prophet Capital-originated construction loan on the property, which had been purchased by Invictus prior to the onset of COVID-19. 

The 140,000-square-foot Kent House features 96 rental apartments, 140 parking spots and 31,000 square feet of retail. Residential rents range from $4,950 for a one-bedroom unit to $8,300 for a large, three-bedroom apartment.  

Waterway Capital and Skyline Capital arranged the financing from Nuveen TIAA for the loan on the fee interest. Leah Paskes’s Landstone Capital arranged the financing from Bank of America on the leasehold.
