HFF arranges construction financing for luxury condominium development in Boston's Seaport District

BOSTON, MA, January 30, 2014 - HFF announced today that it has arranged construction financing for Twenty Two Liberty, a 14-story, luxury residential tower at Fan Pier, featuring sweeping views of Boston Harbor and the city skyline from Boston`s Innovation District. 
HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, a venture between The Fallon Company and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), as advised by Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, to secure the construction loan through Wells Fargo Bank. 

The Twenty Two Liberty residences will be situated on the most seaward parcel of the Fan Pier mixed-use development, offering 270-degree vistas of Boston`s cityscape on one side and the Boston Harbor on the other.  Due for completion in late 2015, the property will also include 15,025 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 282-space, below-grade parking structure.  Designed by world-renowned CBT Architects, Twenty Two Liberty will feature condominiums with several configurations, from studio pieds-a-terre to three-plus bedroom homes.  Residents of Twenty Two Liberty will have access to 24-hour concierge support, private shuttle service around the city, and will be within steps of Fan Pier`s fine dining and retail establishments.

The HFF team representing the borrower was led by executive managing director John Fowler, managing director Anthony Cutone and real estate analyst Toby Banta.  The Wells Fargo team was led by Shelly Gouin.
