SL Green has refinanced 100 Park Avenue with a $360 million
loan from German-based Aareal Capital Corporation.

SL Green Realty Corp. and its joint venture partner, Prudential Real Estate
Investors (PREI), in replacing a 2014 loan from Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen.

$192 million in 2002 and spend over $70 million upgrading the 903,000 s/f
property, turning it into a LEED Gold-certified trophy tower commanding some of
the highest rents in the city. Major tenants include Wells Fargo, BDO Seidman and

A Cushman & Wakefield Equity, Debt & Structured Finance team of Steve Kohn, Alexander Hernandez, Alex Lapidus and Meredith Donovan and Capital Markets team of Adam Spies and Kevin Donner represented SL Green Realty Corp. and PREI in the refinancing.

The Building’s luxury amenities include a game room as well as conference and meeting rooms, a cafe, lounges and a wellness center.

“SL Green and their partner have done a remarkable job
refurbishing and managing this iconic office asset. The property’s proximity to
Grand Central is highly attractive to employees from within the city as well as
to commuters from the suburbs, who would not require a second means of
transportation,” said Kohn.

“Lenders were highly attracted to the LEED Gold-certified asset and its stalwart tenancy that has maintained 95%+ office collections throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Hernandez. “Aareal was thoughtful with loan terms and will be an exceptional financing partner for the ownership as they continue to manage this property to their distinguished standards.”
