The 10-year loan from Jefferies has a fixed rate of 3.8 percent, and was arranged by Meridian Capital Group’s Tal Bar-Or, Raj Khatiwala and Kyle Kite, the Commercial Observer reported.

APF recently renovated the 131,358-square-foot building, including upgrades to the lobby, elevators, hallways and windows. Tenants at 286 Madison include Pivotal Research Group, Eureka Capital Partners and Josephson Luxenberg & Kanc.

The landlord also owns 24 West 57th Street, known as the Gallery Building, where it signed on Mosafer, a high-end Qatari luggage maker last year. APF also paid $188 million to Prudential Real Estate for 80 percent of 28 West 44th Street in Midtown last year. [CO]E.B. Solomont
