Bonjour Capital has landed a $115 million Fannie Mae loan for a residential property it recently acquired on the Upper East Side.

The 10-year, full-term, interest-only loan is for 1735 York Avenue at the corner of East 90th Street, which Bonjour Capital bought from Glenwood Management in 2016 for about $150 million. (It’s among the very few sales for Glenwood Management, whose late founder Leonard Litwin famously hated parting with his properties.) The Fannie Mae financing replaces an earlier loan for $100 million and has a 3.19 percent interest rate.

Meridian Capital Group’s Shaya Ackerman and Shaya Sonnenschein negotiated the financing, which coincided with the rebranding of the building from “the Hamilton” to “the Serrano.”

Bonjour Capital has spent more than $20 million since purchasing the building to renovate and upgrade it, an effort spearheaded by Daniel Goldner Architects, according to Bonjour founder Charles Dayan. The property stands 38 stories tall with 265 apartments and a 150-car parking garage, and amenities include a yoga studio, a business center and a penthouse lounge.

Bonjour sold the Crescent Club, a 130-unit rental building in Long Island City, for $97 million to Weiss Realty a few months before buying 1735 York Avenue.
