The remainder of the Readers Digest property will ultimately include: 91 high- end town homes; 500,000 s/f of medical and office space anchored by Northern West- chester Hospital; 66 affordable housing units; and various public amenities including a walking trail and performance center. CBRE’s National Retail Partners represented Gross- man and Summit, and ar- ranged both the debt and equity capital that includes the construction loan of $44 million from M & T Bank and a 90% institutional joint venture equity partner for the $24 million equity require- ment. The grocery-anchored shopping center in tony, high- barriers-to- entry Westchester County was hotly pursued by both equity and debt capital. Jake Grossman and Felix Charney of Summit said, “Everyone involved in reach- ing this milestone has been schooled in the true meaning of the word ‘perseverance.’ The permitting process was complex, starting in 2005. The Town of Chappaqua has been a fantastic partner in bringing this dream to a reality. We are excited to break ground and look forward to deliver a shop- ping center with a top-notch tenant roster that will enliven the community.” In the last four years, The Grossman Companies and Summit Development have partnered in the acquisition of 9 commercial properties in Connecticut, consisting of some 600,000 s/f including re- tail, office and industrial prop- erties as well as land. The duo is in the process of completing a small shopping center in Danbury, CT on the busy thor- oughfare of Newtown Rd.
