Cushman & Wakefield Arranges $59.8M Sale of Multifamily Community in Miami
MIAMI — Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the $59.8 million sale of Vista Verde at Westchester, a 302-unit apartment community located at 10491 S.W. 14th Terrace in Miami. Robert Given, Troy Ballard, Zachary Sackley and James Quinn of Cushman & Wakefield arranged the transaction on behalf of the seller, Rilea Group. Advenir Inc. acquired the asset, which is located adjacent to Florida International University, a public university with an enrollment of more than 55,000 students. Charles Foschini, Christopher Apone and Lourdes Carranza-Alvarez of Berkadia originated a $44.3 million Freddie Mac loan to fund Advenir’s acquisition. The 11-year, fixed-rate loan features six years of interest-only payments. Approximately 20 percent of the units at Vista Verde have been updated with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, new flooring, new cabinetry, new sinks and refinished ceilings. Originally constructed in 1993, Vista Verde includes a mix of studio to two-bedroom units and features a pool, fitness center, playground and picnic areas. In addition, the community is situated adjacent to 300,000 square feet of retail in two shopping centers anchored by Publix and YouFit Health Clubs.
