The joint venture developing Essex Crossing on Manhattan's Lower East Side has secured $466 million to refinance two of the properties

Delancey Street JV Closes on $466M Essex Crossing Refi 

Delancey Street Associates, a joint venture of Taconic Partners, L+M Development Partners, BFC Partners, the Prusik Group, and the Urban Investment Group within Goldman Sachs Asset Management, has closed on $466 million in refinancing for Essex Crossing’s 145 Delancey and 155 Delancey. The deal comprises three separate loans: $285 million for the Offices at Essex Crossing, $144 million for The Artisan and $37.1 million for One Essex Crossing.  

Provided by Deutsche Bank, the refi will replace the site’s construction loans and provide capital to complete the leasing program. The $37.1-million loan at One Essex Crossing was provided by Square Mile Capital. JLL and Walker & Dunlop represented Delancey Street Associates in securing the loans.   

“The success of this development validates the market demand for live-work-play developments, especially in a post-pandemic era where convenience and accessibility are so desirable,” said Chris Balestra, Taconic co-president and CIO on behalf of Delancey Street.
