301 East 63rd Street is NOT A LANDLEASE. The land IS OWNED BY THE COOP. The maintenance includes principal and interest payments for the ‘mortgage on the land from the land purchase’. The higher maintenance means that apartments are priced below comparable apartments in the neighborhood to offset the monthly. All capital improvements have been paid for with reserves – NO ASSESSMENTS currently or planned.

The corporation refinanced the amount of $39,800,000 on March 11, 2020 at a “FIXED RATE of 3.4%” for 10 years with a 30 year amortization schedule. There is also an option to extend for an additional 5 years at a specifically defined formula. The mortgage balance was $37,781,685 by EOY 2021. As per the recent shareholder meeting the balance is $36,880,000 as of July 31, 2022.
