Natixis provided a $102.795 million floating-rate, first-mortgage financing to Post Brothers for the redevelopment of a vacant, 21-story historic office building located at 260 South Broad Street in Philadelphia into a 268-unit luxury multi-family rental property, to be branded as The Atlantic. The property also includes an adjacent three-story parking garage building with 205 parking spaces as part of the proposed amenities. The property was designed by Rafael Viñoly, a world-renowned architect. The Atlantic is positioned to be Center City Philadelphia’s premier residential building. It will have an unrivaled amenity package with a business lounge with conference rooms for resident usage, a clubhouse, a fitness center including a yoga studio, a rooftop swimming pool, and a roof deck with dog park and grilling areas.
