NEW YORK, NY – January 3, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $91.6 million in joint venture equity and first mortgage financing for the development of 42 Broad Street West, a 249-unit, luxury, transit-oriented multi-housing property in Southern Westchester County.
Working on behalf of the developer, a partnership between Alexander Development Group and The Bluestone Organization, the HFF team arranged $32.6 million in joint venture equity from institutional investors advised by J.P.

Additionally, the HFF team, which included managing director David Giancola and senior director Geoff Goldstein, also placed a $59 million construction loan with Santander Bank and People’s United Bank.

The Fleetwood Metro North rail station provides express service into Grand Central Station, and the Cross County Parkway provides direct access to several area highways. Residential units will include a variety of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans and amenities such as an outdoor swimming pool and patio area, fitness center, game room/viewing room, library, business center, landscaped rooftop garden with outdoor kitchens and fireplace, and concierge service. Due for completion in 2019, the property is being constructed to LEED Silver standards.
