Centennial is providing a $30 million senior loan and Sherwood is chipping in a $16 million mezzanine loan.
The mortgage marks the second Gowanus deal for Sherwood’s new mezzanine lending platform within the past six months. In February, it partnered with CIT Bank on a $38 million package to finance the Domain Companies’ acquisition of 420 Carroll Street. The platform, which quietly launched in January, specializes in pre-construction land loans.
Sherwood’s expansion into lending comes as a growing number of New York developers launch their own debt funds. In February, Slate Property Group launched a lending vehicle with a $500 million target.
Goldman bought 313-331 Bond Street in March for an undisclosed sum, property records show. The 2-acre site sits next to the Gowanus canal and could benefit from a potential rezoning of the neighborhood.
Goldman, who did not respond to a request for comment, is currently developing a 325-unit mixed-use complex in Greenpoint.
