CIT Group served as administrative agent for an $87 million loan to finance construction of a new logistics warehouse and storage facility adjacent to John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, NY.

Triangle Equities Development Company and its partners Township Capital and L&B Realty Advisors are planning to develop a five-story, 300,000-square-foot Terminal Logistics Center, which will be among the first multi-story industrial buildings in the U.S.

“Triangle Equities is thrilled to collaborate with CIT to bring Terminal Logistics to the finish line,” said Josh Weingarten, director of Capital Markets at Triangle Equities. “We anticipate this multi-level facility will be the first vertical air cargo development on the East Coast, setting a new standard for Class-A air cargo space in the JFK market.”

“We were pleased to work with Triangle Equities to develop the financing for this exciting project,” said Chris Niederpruem, managing director and group head for CIT’s Real Estate Finance business. “The proximity of the site to a leading international airport makes it an ideal location for a modern logistics facility to efficiently manage and store cargo.”
