The mortgage includes an existing loan of $165 million and new financing of $104.1 million. Berkeley Point Capital, which BCG Partners bought for $875 million in 2017 and recently folded into the Newmark brand, issued the previous loan and is also listed as the new lender. Newmark’s Jordan Roeschlaub, Dustin Stolly and Stephan Gianopolus brokered the loan. They could not be reached for comment.

Blackstone agreed to buy the from the three-building, 1,327-unit complex in Forest Hills from the Jack Parker Corporation in September. A Newmark Knight Frank team led by Jimmy Kuhn had been marketing the property, along with other buildings owned by Jack Parker, for sale.

Representatives for Blackstone and Newmark were not immediately available for comment.
