Real estate lender Dwight Capital inked a 20,000-square-foot lease at Georgetown Company’s office development 787 11th Avenue.
Georgetown landed a $349.5 million construction loan from the Blackstone Group last October to fund the conversion of the former Ford Motor Company industrial building.
Savills Studley represented Dwight while CBRE represented the landlord.
Led by Adam and Josh Sasouness, Dwight claims it was the second-largest multifamily HUD lender in FY 2016 in terms of both transactions and dollar amount, with $902 million in commitments.
Last year, Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management inked a 67,000-square-foot lease at the Hell’s Kitchen building, which will reportedly feature a rooftop tennis court and an office penthouse. [NYP] — Konrad Putzier
