SL Green Completes $3B Financing of One Vanderbilt

SL Green Realty Corp. said Monday it had closed a $3-billion, 10-year, fixed-rate financing of One Vanderbilt Ave., the recently opened East Midtown office tower which is owned in a joint venture between SL Green, National Pension Service of Korea and Hines Interests. The loan was securitized in a single-asset, single-borrower agented CMBS transaction. 

Led by Wells Fargo Bank and Goldman Sachs, the securitization team also included Bank of America., Bank of China, Bank of Montreal, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Barclays Capital Real Estate and Citi.

The new financing carries a stated coupon of 2.855%, equivalent to a rate of 2.947% inclusive of hedging costs. It replaces the previous $1.75-billion construction facility with an outstanding balance at the time of payoff of approximately $1.54 billion. 

“One Vanderbilt is truly a trophy office property, and it’s no surprise the CMBS financing was well oversubscribed,” said Wells Fargo’s Robert Rosenberg.
