Almost a year after Jubao Xie put the world’s tallest Holiday Inn up for sale, the Chinese developer refinanced the property at 99 Washington Street with a $137 million mortgage.

Ladder Capital issued the 10-year, non-recourse, interest-only, fixed-rate loan, which replaces a $135 million mortgage from Bank of China. Mission Capital Advisors’ Beau Williams, Ari Hirt, Steven Buchwald, Alex Draganiuk and Jamie Matheny brokered the deal.

Xie developed the 50-story, 492-room hotel in Manhattan’s Financial District with Sam Chang and took control of the property in 2014. The hotel has an occupancy rate of 93 percent. The building is also home to restaurant St. George’s Tavern.

Xie hired Marcus & Millichap in late 2017 to shop the hotel with an asking price of more than $300 million.

“With a loan maturing, the borrower was considering selling the property or refinancing, and the local dynamics and capital markets made them ultimately decide to refi,” said Mission’s Williams. “They’re very bullish on New York’s hotel market, and with cheap financing available, they determined that the best strategy was to make this asset a long-term hold.”
