CLEARWATER, FLA. — Maverick Commercial Mortgage has arranged a $22 million construction loan for The Strand, a 132-unit apartment building located at 1100 Cleveland St. in downtown Clearwater. The Chicago-based firm secured the two-year, non-recourse loan with one 12-month extension option through an undisclosed lender on behalf of the borrower, 1000 Cleveland LLC. Originally constructed as an office building, the 15-story property was gutted in 2016 in preparation for conversion into condominiums. The borrower will use the loan — which totals 65 percent of the project cost — to finish the conversion into apartment units. Kimmich Smith Architects is designing the apartment building, and GlenStar Properties is the development manager. Situated within the Tampa Bay region, The Strand will feature a pool, hot tub, kitchen, workshop with tools and equipment, business center and covered parking. In addition, The Strand will include ground-floor retail space.
