Donald Capoccia’s BFC Partners took a big step forward in constructing its ground-up residential development in Jamaica, scoring about $67 million in state loans on Wednesday.

The financing includes a fee and leasehold mortgage for about $39.7 million and a fee and leasehold subsidy mortgage for about $27.1 million, according to property records. The project is known as Jamaica Avenue Apartments, and BFC is constructing it with New Destiny Housing.

BFC filed plans for the project over the summer. It will be located at 153-19 Jamaica Avenue and stand 21 stories tall with 139 units across about 104,000 square feet, split between 99,000 square feet of residential space and 5,000 square feet of commercial space. Amenities should include a gym, tenant lounge and laundry room.

BFC is also developing major projects including the Staten Island outlet mall Empire Outlets and the controversial Bedford-Union Armory project in Crown Heights.

New Destiny Housing recently purchased iStar’s portion of a Coney Island development site at 2006 Surf Avenue for $10.4 million, which is part of the Surf Vets Place complex.
