Progress Capital Advisors arranges $11m construction to permanent loan for renovation

Coney Island, NY Progress Capital Advisors was tasked with arranging an $11 million construction to permanent loan in order to renovate a decaying Sandy damaged 52,000 s/f mixed use building in Coney Island. The renovation provides a clean and renewed welcoming space for HRA (Human Resources Administration – City of NY) offering much needed support for area residents. The building was also expanded and now includes a 9,400 s/f Dollar Tree and a 15,000 s/f Blink Fitness, improving the overall neighborhood.

The renovation loan was a LIBOR floating rate loan which recently converted to a permanent at 4.25% for

10 years on a 25 year amortization. “It was a complicated loan structure that involved three separate credit facilities that were consolidated at the permanent,” said Kathy Anderson. “Without Kathy Anderson working with me throughout the entire three year process, I might not have reached the finish line,” said Steve Samuels, owner.
