Sapir Closes on $326M Financing for 260 and 261 Madison Ave.

The Sapir Organization has closed on a financing package totaling approximately $326 million for 260 and 261 Madison Ave. which sit across the street from each other between East 38th and East 39th streets. The loan was made at an approximately 65% loan to value. 

“This transaction underscores that there is still capital in the market when you have strong financial fundamentals as an organization, a solid location and the right tenant mix,” said Alex Sapir, CEO of The Sapir Organization. “The closing of this new financing culminates in an extremely successful 2022 for the firm.” 

The Sapir Organization was represented by Chris M. Smith and Nicola Housie-Kingham of DLA Piper. The deal was led internally by CFO Charles Hillock and Ryan Marcus, VP, Legal & Compliance. CBRE served as the broker for the financing package with a team led by James Millon, Tom Traynor and Lawrence Britvan.
