Snew Tower in downtown East Midtown is owned by a joint venture between SL Green, the National Pension Service of Korea and Hines Interests, LP.
The loan was securitized under the CMBS One Asset One Borrower (SASB) deal.

One Vanderbilt is currently 89 percent leased.
“Once again, One Vanderbilt is setting the benchmark as one of the top office towers in the country,” said Robert Schiffer, managing director of SL Green Realty Corp. “Our vision for One Vanderbilt has been achieved and exceeded in many ways. We have now completed the largest single building securitization in history using a high quality and extensive bond order book, resulting in incredibly efficient pricing and highlighting the appeal of this landmark project. We are grateful to all our partners for their commitment to us and One Vanderbilt. “
