Jonathan Rose-Led Partnership Closes on $223M Financing for East Harlem Project

Jonathan Rose Companies, L+M Development Partners and Acacia Network have closed on $223 million in financing for the second and final phase of Sendero Verde, a 100% affordable mixed-use Passive House and Enterprise Green Communities-certified development in East Harlem.

Phase two of Sendero Verde will include 347 units of affordable housing serving a variety of income tiers. A 2024 completion is expected. 

The $223-million phase two of Sendero Verde was financed with construction loans from city agencies and grant funding from NYSERDA. The project is also funded through a letter of credit from Citi Bank and a tax-credit syndication to Goldman Sachs.

“Sendero Verde’s mix of incomes, passive house design, plaza, gardens and more than 85,000 square feet of community space serving education, youth and senior activities and health needs provides a model for the next generation of communities of opportunity,” said Jonathan Rose Companies president Jonathan F.P. Rose.
