Cottonwood Management has landed a $480 million construction loan to develop 3.5 acres in Boston Seaport Square. Natixis arranged the loan that will finance a 819,000-square-foot mixed-use space offering a 717-unit residential community, two condominium towers, one luxury tower and a 125,000-square-foot two-story retail base podium. 

“We’re thrilled to be financing Boston’s Seaport Square project, which illustrates our ability to provide borrowers tremendous capital markets access and unique, tailored deal structures and financing solutions,” said Greg Murphy, head of Real Estate Finance Americas, Natixis, in prepared remarks. “We are encouraged by what this deal says about the quality of our platform, and believe the Seaport has found a great partner in Cottonwood Management.”

The property’s residential units will feature quartz countertops, gas fireplaces, washer/dryers, porcelain tile, stainless steel appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows and custom Italian cabinetry. Residents will have access to amenities such as:
