Lloyd Goldman’s BLDG Management has secured $251 million in financing for a rental tower at 222 East 44th Street, according to property records filed with the city Tuesday.
The New York State Housing Finance Agency and the Bank of China provided the loan.
Goldman bought the site for $32 million last year and applied for a permit application to construct the 449-foot-tall building in January, as The Real Deal reported.
Goldman’s plans include 429 apartments — 87 of which will be affordable — across more than 360,000 square feet, according to the developer’s permit application with the Department of Buildings. The building is located between Second and Third avenues.
Although SLCE is the listed architect of record, Handel Architects won a competition to design the new residential tower. Amenities will include a swimming pool and a basketball court.
A BLDG representative was not immediately available for comment Tuesday.
