Related Companies and Vornado Realty Trust secured a $396 million Deutsche Bank loan to refinance their Chelsea office building 85 10th Avenue, property records filed with the city Thursday show.

Related TRData LogoTINY bought the 540,299-square-foot office building, a former Nabisco factory, in 2007 from Somerset Partners for $430 million. The new mortgage replaces a $270 million acquisition loan from Deutsche Bank subsidiary German American Capital Corporation. Vornado reportedly owns a 50 percent stake in the property.

In 2014, Google leased about 180,000 square feet in the building, which is close to its main New York office at 76 Ninth Avenue.

Deutsche Bank is one of New York’s most active real estate lenders, issuing more than $13 billion worth of loans between 2011 and 2015 alone. But beyond New York, the bank is struggling with high debt and a possible $14 billion SEC fine over its role in the subprime mortgage crisis.
