David Marx secures $67M refinancing for Aloft hotel site

Long-stalled project on 11th Avenue slowly coming to life

Developer David Marx continues to put the pieces together for an upcoming Aloft hotel at 450 11th Avenue, refinancing the project with $67 million in loans, documents recorded by the city Friday show.

Lender Cottonwood Management replaced an existing loan from Madison Realty Capital TRData LogoTINY with $55 million in new financing. Hong Kong-based Celona Asset Management provided an $11.9 million gap mortgage, records show.

The Aloft (a Starwood Hotels and Resorts brand) will have 420 rooms when construction finally wraps. It’s been a long time coming, too — Marx’s Marx Development Group first set out to build the hotel at the site just across from the Jacob Javits Center in 2007.

Marx did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last year, Marx unveiled new renderings for the project. He’s also building a 399-key hotel close-by at 461 West 34th Street in a crowded Midtown hotel market.

In March, Marx raised $61 million on the Israeli bond market, funds he used to pay down debt on assisted living facilities under ownership in the outer boroughs.
