Delshah Capital Closes on $130 Million Loan Arranged By Eastern Consolidated to Finance Conversion and Development of 30 Morningside Drive In Morningside Heights


NEW YORK – January 16, 2018 – Delshah Capital, LLC, (“Delshah”), a leading full-service commercial real estate investment and property management company, announced that it has entered into a $130 million construction loan with Square Mile Capital Management to finance the conversion of a five-building medical facility into a 205-unit, 200,215-square-foot luxury rental complex at 30 Morningside Drive in Morningside Heights.   

Eastern Consolidated’s Adam Hakim, Managing Director, and James Murad, Director, of the firm’s Capital Advisory Division, arranged the financing. The team previously arranged a $60 million first mortgage bridge loan for Delshah Capital to finance the acquisition of the property.

“We are thrilled to have closed this loan which completes the financing necessary for the conversion and repositioning of this prime Manhattan site.  We would like to extend our appreciation to Square Mile Capital Management for its collaboration and partnership, as well as Eastern Consolidated for arranging this loan with Square Mile,” said Michael Delshah, Principal and CEO of Delshah Capital.  

The buildings are currently undergoing a complete as-of-right gut renovation. Interior demolition and abatement have been completed, and the remaining renovation work is expected to take two years.  

Constructed between 1896 and 1928, the site consists of five architecturally significant, Ernest Flagg designed, pre-war buildings (including the carriage house), overlooking Morningside Park and Upper Manhattan. The Flagg-designed buildings are generally constructed of buff brick with granite bases, marble ornament, decorative iron balconies, and red slate roofs. Two of the buildings have landmarked exteriors. 

30 Morningside is adjacent to St. John the Divine, which is one of the largest cathedrals in the world, and overlooks Morningside Park and all of Manhattan to the East River. It is three short blocks to both Central Park and Riverside Park.
