The loan on the 16-building, 6 million-square-foot office development is expected to close in the next few weeks, with Bank of China funding the senior portion of the financing and SL Green providing the remainder in mezzanine debt.

The previous financing on the waterfront property, located between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park, totaled $300 million and was securitized in the commercial mortgage-backed securities market, according to the New York Observer.

The original borrower on that debt, a group of investors led by Rubin Schron and Abraham Fruchthandler, defaulted on the loan in 2011. A new borrower entity, with sponsorship from Industry City partners Jamestown and Angelo, Gordon & Co., assumed the debt in 2013.

Jamestown and Angelo, Gordon & Co., as well as fellow partners Belvedere Capital and Schron’s Cammeby’s International, took over the former Bush Terminal in 2013 and have been redeveloping it as a $1 billion project targeted at creative, manufacturing and TAMI office tenants.
