Eastern Bank?s James Partridge (center)
Well, it may not be that easy, but we snapped Eastern Bank?s James Partridge (center) at last week?s RELA breakfast where the lenders and guests enjoyed the spectacular views from the 27th floor windows of the Boston College Club. He says that since April or May, his bank has been lending again. Mostly, they're interested in multifamily, but they're also looking at some office re-positioning projects. As time ticks on, he told us, banks are opening up to do more new construction loans, with multifamily—of course—a favorite, if it's well leased.
