UPDATED, Feb. 16, 11:58 a.m.: The Zar family refinanced its office tower at 1450 Broadway with a $170 million loan from Goldman Sachs, according to property records filed with the city.

The family’s Zar Group bought the 42-story, 400,200-square-foot Times Square tower for $204 million in 2011. The new loan includes a $67.4 million gap mortgage and replaces a $114 million loan from UBS Real Estate Securities, of which $102.6 million was outstanding.

The Zar Group, not to be confused with David Zar’s Zar Property NY, is the real estate investment arm of the Zar family, which owns the dress manufacturer Studio One.

Goldman Sachs and Zar did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
