Twining Properties and partner CBD secured $70 million in debt and equity to fund the development of a 27-story, 168-unit residential rental building in Long Island City.

Watermark Court Square, a proposed 124,500-square-foot property, will hold a mix of studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments. There will also be 2,500 square feet of retail space at the building, located at 27-19 44th Drive between Thomson and Jackson avenues.

“We just think that Long Island City is going to continue to grow and be a really exciting place to live,” Twining Properties CEO Alex Twining told the New York Observer.

Long Island City’s Court Square is amid a building boom. Flushing-based developer Chris Jiashu Xu filed plans for a massive 79-story, 778,000-square-foot residential tower just north of One Court Square at 23-15 44th Drive.

Construction on Watermark has begun and is slated to be complete in 2017.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Steve Kohn, Mark Ehlinger and John Spreitzer arranged the financial package, which also included $38 million in debt from Santander Bank, according to city records. The rest of the financing was from joint venture equity. [NYO]Dusica Sue Malesevic
