Shanghai Commercial provided a $45.5 million project loan and a $70.5 million building loan, according to records filed with New York City s Department of Finance Tuesday. The bank also took on a $14.6 million senior loan from HSBC Bank.

The project at 2420 Amsterdam Avenue will be a joint hotel, office and retail project, which Dutch firm MVRDV designed to look like an interconnected stack of colorful blocks.

Youngwoo Associates and its partner on the project, Beijing Construction and Engineering Group International, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the 221-key project in November.

Youngwoo Associate s Bryan Woo declined to comment on the financing. Shanghai Commercial Bank did not immediately return requests for comment.

The developer picked up the site, a former 爱上海同城手机版

Shanghai Commercial is one of the busier construction lenders in the hotel space, an area other banks have shied away from amid a glut of new properties.

The bank last year loaned $60 million to Frank Ng for a hotel he s planning in Chelsea, at 132 West 28th Street, and provided acquisition and construction financing to Richard Lou s LCRE Group.

Shanghai Commercial in 2016 also provided a $222 million c新爱上海同城对对碰论坛
