Kenneth Aschendorf and Berndt Perl’s APF Properties snagged a $60 million CMBS loan from Jefferies LoanCore to refinance 286 Madison Avenue in Midtown.
APF purchased the 23-story building, between East 40th and 41st streets, for $44 million in 2006 from SL Green Realty . At the time, the landlord received a $32.7 million acquisition loan from Deutsche Bank.
The 10-year loan from Jefferies has a fixed rate of 3.8 percent, and was arranged by Meridian Capital Group’s Tal Bar-Or, Raj Khatiwala and Kyle Kite, the Commercial Observer reported.
APF recently renovated the 131,358-square-foot building, including upgrades to the lobby, elevators, hallways and windows. Tenants at 286 Madison include Pivotal Research Group, Eureka Capital Partners and Josephson Luxenberg & Kanc.
The landlord also owns 24 West 57th Street, known as the Gallery Building, where it signed on Mosafer, a high-end Qatari luggage maker last year. APF also paid $188 million to Prudential Real Estate for 80 percent of 28 West 44th Street in Midtown last year. [CO] — E.B. Solomont
