Greybrook’s Fort Lauderdale development partner, Property Markets Group (PMG), announced this week that a $153.9 million USD construction loan closed for the two-tower purpose-built rental development. Provided by Broad Street Real Estate, the financing will enable the first phase of construction to begin on the first 600 unit, 36-storey tower on the Las Olas Riverfront. Two apartment towers are planned for the site for a total of 1,200 units, more than 10,000 square feet of shared amenities, and a waterfront public plaza at grade.
PMG’s financing representative, Luis Flores of Arnstein & Lehr LLP, broke the news to The Real Deal, stating that this loan is the “change in flavor for the type of product that construction lenders are attracted to.” Purpose-built rental development continues to be in high-demand in the South Florida region and contributed to PMG’s creation of PMGx, a multi-family division offering social living solutions.
