S3 Capital was established in 2013, when co-founders and managing partners, Robert Schwartz and Joshua
Crane identified a lack of institutional quality, middle-market construction lenders in New York City. With
extensive backgrounds and superior insight into the financing and development processes, the firm’s knowledgeable team executes the unique ability to handle all aspects of construction lending to maximize efficiency for clients with in-house construction management professionals. Providing fully-integrated services in
originations, underwriting and construction monitoring, the firm offers a user-friendly platform by eliminating third-parties from the process. Able to adapt to any complexities that may arise throughout construction,
S3 Capital remains aggressive and nimble in order to resourcefully streamline projects. As one of the most

larger balance loans. With larger loans ranging from $24 million to $76 million, S3 Capital closed seven loans
in the second half of 2018, totaling more than $300 million. The firm recently provided a $140 million construction loan to finance two,
25-story mixed-use towers in South Bronx’s Mott Haven neighborhood, upon recognizing the area’s potential.
