CWCaptial, the financial group that took over the senior mortgage at Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village early this week, broke its silence in a letter to City Council member and Stuy Town rent stabilization advocate Dan Garodnick, according to the New York Observer. Despite the special servicer’s reluctance to publicly comment on the ongoing Stuyvesant Town mortgage melee, the letter, written by Charles Spetka, president of CWCaptial, heaps praise on the council member, referring to Garodnick as “an outstanding community leader,” and promises that CWCapital will “make every effort to work cooperatively with [Garodnick] and the [Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village] residents.” Although Spetka noted that his company’s first priority is to secure the $3 billion owed to mortgage lenders, he said that CWCapital “believe[s] strongly that the underlying value of these properties is directly linked to maintaining the [positive] attributes of Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town.”
