Berkadia Arranges $97M Construction Loan for Apartment Complex Near Miami
SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FLA. — Berkadia has arranged a $97 million construction loan for Las Marinas Apartments, a planned two-building, 256-unit complex in Sunny Isles Beach. New York Life Real Estate Investors provided the 15-year, fixed-rate loan with five years of interest-only payments. The lender has also committed to fund up to an additional $15 million subject to the satisfaction of certain undisclosed conditions. Each building will stand 17 stories and offer 128 units. The borrower and developer, The Brunetti Organization, will also use some of the loan proceeds to construct an eight-story, 860-parking space garage and a new seawall, as well as upgrade the adjacent Marina del Mar apartment complex. Marina del Mar was originally constructed in 1962. Las Marinas Apartments is located at 100 Kings Point Drive, 18 miles north of downtown Miami. Brunetti expects to break ground on the new multifamily buildings in July, with delivery expected 24 months thereafter.
