$600 Million Financing to Durst Affiliates

Represented Citibank, as agent, in a $600 million term loan to certain affiliates of the Durst Organization secured by a blanket mortgage on six office buildings located in Manhattan. The term loan refinanced approximately $300 million of existing mortgage debt on three of the properties (including approximately $120 million outstanding to Citibank). The bank group also financed a $400 million revolving credit facility to the Durst Organization. The revolving credit facility is secured by pledges of economic and equity interests in the six mortgage borrowers and in two additional Durst affiliates, which affiliates own other office properties in Manhattan.
