The conventional construction loan was approved and pending for closing within a few months.

The loan was arranged by Samuel W. Li, founder of Jewel Capital. According to Mr. Li, Jewel Capital’s sweet spot as real estate advisors for development or redevelopment projects is from $500K to $50M.

The property, located in the Lower East Side neighborhood of New York City, is near the intersection between the Grand Street and the Orchard Street. The property is a development site, with a total area of 3,536 square feet. The existing structure was built in 2010.
