NEW YORK, NY – March 27, 2017 –Eastern Consolidated’s Capital Advisory Division has arranged a $108 million construction loan for XIN Development International Inc., which is developing a seven-story, 82-unit residential condominium with ground floor retail at 615 Tenth Avenue between West 44th and West 45th Streets.

The new project will include 71,699 net square feet of residential space, and 36,053 net square feet of retail space on the ground floor and lower level, of which 76 percent has already been leased to a national credit tenant. The site features 200-feet of frontage on Tenth Avenue and 125-feet of frontage on the corners of West 44th and West 45th Streets.

Adam Hakim, Managing Director, and James Murad, Director, arranged the financing for XIN Development with the lender, Bank of the Ozarks.
