Bravo Property Trust Finances $169.3M Journal Square Project

Bravo Property Trust, an affiliate of Bravo Capital, co-founded by Aaron Krawitz and Gabi Moshayev, which is a leading privately held bridge and construction lender, is excited to announce the closing of a $169.3 million senior construction loan located in the Journal Square neighborhood of Jersey City at 1075 West Side Square.

“We continue to see tremendous opportunities in construction financing as other lenders are pulling back,” said Aaron Krawitz, CEO of Bravo Property Trust and Bravo Capital. “The sponsorship is world-renowned and continues to raise the bar for new development.”

The project is a new 477-unit Class A rental building with ground floor retail. Located a >half mile from the PATH station, West Side Square offers direct access to Downtown Manhattan and an exceptional amenity package for the submarket, including a pool, decks, lounges, grilling areas, and other common spaces. The sponsorship team includes Westdale Construction, Lanterra, Alltree and LanTree Developments.

The site broke ground in December of 2023 and has all necessary municipal permits and approvals to complete construction. Located in one of the fastest-growing submarkets in the New York Metro area, Journal Square has experienced significant development in recent years following the Journal Square zoning resolution. The submarket continues to exhibit strong absorption and low stabilized vacancy levels.

“We are thrilled to support this major multi-family development with our substantial construction loan,” said Gabi Moshayev, Co-Founder and Chairman of Bravo Property Trust. “This deal exemplifies our company’s growth and our ability to provide comprehensive financing solutions tailored to the unique needs of the real estate market. The growth of Bravo Property Trust’s platform is driven by an active and dedicated team of professionals who are committed to excellence and innovation in real estate finance.”
