NEW YORK CITY — Walker & Dunlop has arranged a $131 million construction loan for a 240-unit multifamily project that will be located in the Long Island City area of Queens.
The site at 23-10 42nd Road lies at the convergence of the borough’s Court Square and Queens Plaza districts. Preliminary sitework was completed last fall, and the development team expects to fully deliver the building in summer 2025.
Apartments will be available in studio, one- and two-bedroom formats and will feature Class A finishes. Residents will have access to more than 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a fitness center, coworking spaces, sky lounge and multiple amenity terraces, all with views of the Manhattan skyline.
A syndicate led by Corebridge Financial (formerly AIG) and Los Angeles-based PCCP LLC provided the floating-rate loan, specific terms of which were not disclosed. The borrower is locally based developer Werwaiss Properties, which has partnered with Albanese Development Corp. on the project.
“This thoughtfully conceived residential tower in one of New York’s most rapidly growing, transit-rich neighborhoods will help create additional market-rate and attainable housing options in New York City,” says Brian Haber, managing director at PCCP.
Jonathan Schwartz, Aaron Appel, Adam Schwartz, Keith Kurland and Michael Diaz of Walker & Dunlop originated the financing.
