Landsea, DNA Close on Acquisition from Extell

Landsea Homes and DNA Development LLC have closed on a $97-million senior and mezzanine loan for their acquisition and development of 540 Ave. of the Americas, which they acquired from Extell Development.

The developers are planning to build a luxury residential building with ground floor retail. Extell acquired 540 Sixth and four adjacent buildings in late 2015.

“This is precisely the type of deal we are looking for in New York City,” said Landsea Homes’ Thomas Graham. He cited the property’s “incredible location close to numerous transportation options, parks, retail, restaurants and cultural institutions.” It’s at the nexus of three downtown submarkets: Flatiron, Chelsea and Greenwich Village.

An affiliate of Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies provided the loan, which was arranged by Ackman-Ziff’s Patrick Hanlon, Sean Meehan and Ross Cumming.
