Fortune International, Château Receive $119M Refinancing for Oceanfront Condo Development Site Near Miami

SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FLA. — Fortune International Group and Château Group have received a $119 million loan for the refinancing of La Playa de Varadero, an oceanfront condominium development site in Sunny Isles Beach, a barrier island about 20 miles north of Miami.

Located at 18801 Collins Ave., the 4.7-acre site boasts beach frontage of 435 feet directly on the Atlantic Ocean. Plans call for 490 residential units across two condominium towers. Construction of the 1.2 million-square-foot project will be completed in two phases.

In 2015, the developers received site plan approval from the City of Sunny Isles Beach. The team recently secured final approval for the last set of modifications to the original design. To date, a portion of the predevelopment work has been completed, including the demolition of an existing structure and a structural build-out of the sales center.

Dustin Stolly, Jordan Roeschlaub, Nick Scribani, Chris Kramer and Dominick Calisto of Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) arranged the refinancing, with Bank OZK as the lender. The loan covers some predevelopment costs and land carry costs, according to NKF.

Fortune International Group is a real estate development firm located in Miami that is known for its luxury condo projects. Fortune’s development portfolio is worth more than $7 billion, comprising 9 million square feet and 3,000 units.

Château Group is a real estate development firm with experience in residential, commercial and mixed-use projects throughout the United States and South America.
