The Financial District building has been on watchlist status since February as costs and vacancies increased.

“Contact has been made with the borrower and a pre-negotiation letter is being reviewed,” according to a filing Friday on the building’s commercial mortgage-backed security.

Payments for the debt on the 72-story tower have been made through this month. The mortgage on 40 Wall St. has an outstanding balance of $122.6 million, down from an original $160 million, according to loan documents.

“The loan is in full conformance,” a Trump Organization spokesperson said in an email Friday. “We have never missed a payment, we have never paid late and we have never breached a loan covenant. We are incredibly proud of 40 Wall St. and we will continue to operate this world-class building.”

Trump is facing a civil fraud trial, with New York Attorney General Letitia James accusing the former president and co-defendants of duping banks, insurers and others by inflating his wealth on financial statements. James is seeking fines and penalties, including banning Trump from running a business in New York.

The former president has denied wrongdoing and says his net worth was far higher than the state claims.

A New York judge had issued an order earlier to dissolve some companies owned by Trump. That was temporarily delayed last month by an appellate judge as the civil fraud trial continues in Manhattan.

The mortgage on 40 Wall St. has a 3.67% coupon and matures in July 2025, according to loan documents. The tower’s occupancy rate dropped to 77% as of June 30 from 98% when the loan originated in 2015.
