Merchants Capital Secures $21M Construction loan for Multifamily Community in Queens
NEW YORK CITY — Merchants Capital has secured a $21 million construction loan for a 200-unit multifamily community in Queens. The borrower, Dunn Development, will use the loan to redevelop the Triboro Hospital for Tuberculosis into a housing project that will provide a mix of supportive housing for special needs and homeless tenants, as well as affordable housing for low- to moderate-income households. Merchants Capital secured the funding using a Freddie Mac low-income housing tax credit cash loan. Construction is underway and is slated for completion by July 2021.
