Berkadia Arranges $22.5M Loan for Office Building Conversion in West Palm Beach
625 N. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach is 50 percent leased to medical tenants such as Mount Sinai Hospital and Jupiter Medical Center.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. — Berkadia has arranged a $22.5 million bridge loan for the repositioning of the former Bank of America office building located at 625 N. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. The borrowers, led by FRI Investors, purchased the 110,000-square-foot, 10-story asset last year in an all-cash transaction with the intent to convert the property into a medical office building. Bank of America vacated its 40,000-square-foot lease at the property late last year. The building is currently 50 percent leased to tenants including Mount Sinai Hospital and Jupiter Medical Center. Charles Foschini and Christopher Apone of Berkadia’s South Florida office arranged the three-year loan with an adjustable interest rate through PCCP LLP.
