The future is looking bright for the developers of One Thousand Museum Residences. Just three weeks ago, the Reuban Brothers filed a foreclosure lawsuit against the developers for $82.7 million with interest. As of March 3, 2021, which is the date of the filing, 15 developer units were still available in the tower.

Within three weeks of the foreclosure announcement; Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Kevin Venger and partners Gregg Covin and Todd Glaser, have secured and closed on a $90 million condo inventory loan from Cirrus Real Estate Partners. This new loan closed on Monday and will pay off the loan balance that was originally provided by Fortress Investment Group in 2016. It will also give the developers time to sell the additional units.

The mortgage broker for this transaction was Jim Fried, President of Sandstone Realty Advisers. A former Fortress executive, who is now the Managing partner at Cirrus Real Estate Partners, Tony Tufariello, expects the developers to sell the units with the next couple of years. Tufariello stated that they were "attracted to the buildings larger floor plans and amenities, and encouraged by the recent uptick in sales."

The developers stated that they were planning to pay off the original construction loan but it was "pushed due to travel restrictions that hindered lenders from walking the final project."
