NEW YORK, NY – The New York and New Jersey offices of HFF (Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P.) announced today that they have arranged an $80 million first mortgage financing for the Puck Building (top left photo), a 265,000-square-foot, historic office and retail building in New York’s SoHo neighborhood.

Working on behalf of the borrower, Kushner Companies, HFF senior managing directors Mike Tepedino (middle right photo) and Jose Cruz (middle left photo) and director Steven Klein (lower right photo) placed the adjustable-rate loan on the property.

Originally constructed in 1885, the Puck Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a New York City historic landmark.

The property was the historic headquarters of Puck Magazine, America’s first political satire magazine, and today its tenants include New York University, REI (ground-floor retail) and Swanke Hayden Connell Architects.

  The property is situated at 293-309 Lafayette Street at the corner of Houston Street across from several subway lines in SoHo.

“The Puck Building is one of the most recognizable buildings in all of Manhattan and has a great location in SoHo, one of the most high-profile retail locations in New York City,” said Tepedino.

Kushner Companies is a family-owned developer, owner and asset management real estate firm involved in the ownership and management of a commercial and residential portfolio consisting of nearly eight million square feet of office, industrial and retail space and more than 5,000 apartments.
