by Taylor Williams

NEW YORK CITY — Wells Fargo has provided $288 million in financing for North Cove, a 611-unit affordable housing project in Manhattan’s Inwood neighborhood. The financing includes $155 million in debt that backs city-issued, tax-exempt bonds, as well as $133 million in equity that was generated through the purchase of tax credits. The borrower and developer is a partnership between Joy Construction Corp. and Maddd Equities. Units will be restricted to households earning between 27 and 110 percent of the area median income, and roughly 15 percent (94) of the residences will be reserved for formerly homeless residents. The development will include 60,000 square feet of commercial space and offer amenities such as outdoor picnic areas, community recreation rooms and various supportive services. Lastly, as part of the project, the city has donated an adjacent parcel for the construction of a waterfront park.
