Repositioned LIC Flex Property Lands $51M Financing

Cushman & Wakefield advised a joint venture of North River Company (NRC) and North Colony Asset Management in obtaining $51,000,000 of fixed rate financing for the Matsil Building in Long Island City. The loan was provided by affiliates of AIG.

A Cushman & Wakefield team of Steve Kohn, Alexander Hernandez, Emily Johansen and Josh King represented the borrower, working directly with NRC’s Chris Flagg, Chris Pachios and Forrest Mas.

“Since acquiring the property in December 2018, ownership has had tremendous success implementing its repositioning plan,” said Hernandez. “We were able to capitalize on recent leasing successes at the property, coupled with upside potential from existing below-market leases, to arrange a long-term refinancing of the property at very attractive terms.”

Located at 48-49 35th St., the Matsil Building is a 312,513-square foot industrial/flex property. The three-story property is 100% leased to Maquette Fine Art Services, Ralph Lauren Corporation and Motorola Solutions
