Josh Zegen, Managing Principal and Co–Founder of Madison Realty Capital, said "Boston's Seaport District is expanding rapidly, but high barriers to entry and long entitlement processes have constrained the supply of luxury condominium offerings. We are pleased to expand our presence in Boston to deliver an attractive and complex financing solution mid–construction for a significantly presold property to Cronin Development, a developer with over twenty years of experience developing and managing real estate projects in the Boston area. This transaction reflects Madison Realty Capital's ability to deliver unique financing and certainty of execution for residential projects in every phase of development."

Jon Cronin, Founder of Cronin Development, said "We are thrilled to engage Madison Realty Capital as a single source of financing to complete this luxury residential product, which will be the last waterfront residential development in the Seaport District. Madison Realty Capital was able to leverage its knowledge of the Boston condominium market to quickly and efficiently provide us a tailored financing solution during the construction process that will enable us to complete the project in the near term."
