BridgeInvest Funds $36 MM Construction Loan for Mixed-Use Property

1st Priority Mortgage Loan

Loan Amount
$36,000,000
Property Type
Mixed-Use
Location
Aventura, FL

BridgeInvest recently closed a $36,000,000 construction loan secured by a 10-story project featuring a 100-room Tapestry Collection by Hilton and approximately 50,000 square feet of office and retail condominiums. The property is centrally located adjacent to the Aventura Hospital and within one mile of Aventura Mall. Project plans call for extended stay rooms featuring kitchenettes and premium amenities in addition to office suites designed for medical tenants who will provide ancillary services to the hospital. The loan will allow the sponsor to complete construction, sell the remaining condo units and stabilize the hotel after opening. The borrower was represented by Ken Klein of The Q Kapital Group.

Transaction Highlights

Multilayered Capital Stack
BridgeInvest was able to structure the loan within a capital stack which included equity, EB-5 funds, condo deposits and other subordinating debt.

One-Stop Lending Solution
BridgeInvest provided the initial acquisition financing for the property before closing on the construction loan. This saved the borrower time and provided peace of mind that the project would be fully funded at acquisition closing.

Complex Mixed-Use Property
The property has both a for-sale condominium component and an operating hotel component which will be separated through a master condominium regime creating a challenge for other lenders to underwrite.
