Jared Kushner’s Kushner Companies landed a $370 million loan from Deutsche Bank and SL Green Realty to refinance its 250,000-square foot retail condominium on West 43rd Street.

The financing includes a $285 million senior note from Deutche Bank and a $85 million mezzanine loan from SL Green, the Commercial Observer reported. JLL’s Keith Kurland and Aaron Appel brokered the debt deals, which are 10-year terms, according to the CO. The new debt replaces a $295 million acquisition loan that Brookfield Property Partners provided Kushner last year.

Kushner Companies bought the space for $296 million from Africa Israel Investments and Five Mile Capital in May last year. The building is landmarked and was once home to the New York Times’ printing plant.

Since buying the space last year, Kushner has fully leased the retail condo. Gulliver’s Gate, which will house the world’s biggest miniature entertainment center, will take 49,000 square feet across two floors of the building. According to the CO, the entertainment firm is paying $300 per square foot for the ground level and $100 per square foot on the second floor.

The retail component will also include National Geographic, Los Tacos No. 1 and a food hall from chef Todd English. [CO] — Miriam Hall
