Multifamily Project in Mott Haven Lands $63M Loan

Scale Lending has provided a $63-million loan to YS Developers, led by Simon Kaufman. The loan will finance the construction of 322 Grand Concourse, a 14-story, 151-unit, 135,000-square-foot multifamily building in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx. 

“We continue to see a steady recovery in the multifamily sector and the Bronx, as a neighborhood, has maintained strong demand even during the pandemic.” said Martin Nussbaum, co-founder of Slate Property Group and Scale Lending. “

The loan, which follows SCALE’s $59-million loan for The Enclave in East Harlem and $55-million loan for the Nova in Long Island City, will support the delivery of 322 Grand Concourse at a time when Mott Haven continues its rapid appreciation. The building, projected to be completed in two years, will be part of the Affordable NY program, with 30% of the units slated for affordable housing.
