“We have been very active in the Long Island City market
over the last five years. It has maintained strong demand throughout the
pandemic, and we have seen an increase in activity recently in both the rental
and condominium markets,” said Martin Nussbaum, Co-Founder and Principal of
Slate Property Group. “With our confidence in SB Development’s experience and
their business plan for the site, we were able to work quickly with them to
close on this loan.”

“It was a pleasure working with the team at SCALE,” said
Joseph Stern, Principal of SB Development. “We’re very excited and fortunate to
move forward with developing this architectural beacon for the neighborhood and
grateful to be in a position that allows us to contribute to the rebirth of
this great city that we love.”

The Nova is a ground-up luxury condo building that will
feature 86 units and ground-floor retail across 95,000 s/f and 24 stories.
