Kings County reigned in July as lenders pumped billions into outer-borough real estate projects.
The month’s 10 biggest loans totaled $1.8 billion, more than five times June’s total, and about twice as much as last July — closely mirroring a similar rebound in Manhattan.
Brooklyn captured seven of the month’s 10 largest commercial loans, while Queens had the other three. A couple big projects in rezoned Gowanus received construction loans, while Carlyle leveraged its Brooklyn and Queens buying spree into the month’s biggest outer-borough financing deal.
