Natixis Provides $97M Financing on Hudson Yards Apartments 

Natixis Corporate & Investment Banking (CIB) originated a $97-million, five-year, floating-rate financing to a borrower affiliated with principals of Maddd Equities, Joy Construction and the Katz Family to refinance The Lewis, a 186-unit, Class A multifamily property at 411 W. 35th St. in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards neighborhood. 

“This execution demonstrates that the New York City multifamily market is in a very healthy place and that competitive financing is still very much available for premier assets and strong sponsors”, said Eli S. Weiss, principal of Joy Construction. 

“This transaction illustrates Natixis CIB’s continued focus on core multifamily opportunities with best-in-class sponsors,” said Jared Zimmel, executive director, real estate & hospitality Americas, Natixis CIB. “This financing marks Natixis CIB’s seventh transaction with principals of Maddd Equities and Joy Construction, two companies with a proven track record in the New York City market “ 

The financing was arranged by Brad Domenico from Progress Capital.
