Klosed Properties Purchases $26M Note on Elie Schwartz’s Midtown Office Building 

Klosed Properties and Namdar Realty Corp. have acquired a $26.2 million bank note for a 15-story midtown office building located at 20 East 46th Street in New York. The note was purchased from East West Bank, with the original balance being $30 million.  

The building, which includes ground floor retail space, spans 94,461 square feet and underwent a complete renovation in 2017. Elie Schwartz’s Nightingale Properties obtained the loan in 2016 to purchase the leasehold for the 15-story building. Nightingale defaulted earlier this year amid a scandal involving the misappropriation of funds from small-time investors on the crowdfunding platform CrowdStreet.  

At the time of purchase, the loan was in default, and the outstanding balance had been reduced to $26.2 million. Rosewood Realty Group’s Aaron Jungreis, Ben Khakshoor and Alex Fuchs represented Klosed Properties, Namdar Realty Corp. and East West Bank.
