We don’t need no stinking loans! Eichner opts out of $125M inventory financing at Madison Sq. Park Tower

Developer to instead repay $340M construction loan

Before sales picked up at Madison Square Park Tower, developer Ian Bruce Eichner was seeking a $125 million condominium inventory loan for the project.

That financing is no longer needed since at least $43.9 million in sales have closed at the condo project since May, the Commercial Observer reported. The First Republic Bank was among several lenders that were considering providing the loan.

Eichner will instead repay the entirety of a $340 million construction loan from Goldman Sachs. It’s not yet clear how the developer will handle an initial $80 million construction loan from Fortress Investment Group and Dune Real Estate Partners.

In September, Eichner booted Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group from the 83-unit project, replacing the firm with Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Sales had slowed since the tower hit the 50 percent sold mark. Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes took over sales on the project. [CO] — Kathryn Brenzel
