Developer obtains construction financing for 288-unit EDEN Crystal Lake project in rapidly growing city


MIAMI and PORT ORANGE, FL – March 11, 2021 – Leading developer EDEN Multifamily, founded by industry veterans Jay Massirman and Jay Jacobson, started construction on EDEN Crystal Lake in Port Orange – a growing city near Daytona Beach. EDEN is building 288 Class A, garden-style apartments in the burgeoning suburban area.


EDEN secured $45.33 million in construction financing from private real estate lender Trez Capital for the project. The transaction closed on March 5, 2021.


Located on 19.5 acres at 1270 Reed Canal Road, EDEN Crystal Lake will have a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with 9-foot ceiling heights, granite countertops, high-end appliances, walk-in closets and balconies/patios in three-story buildings. Planned amenities include a clubhouse, resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, lakefront boardwalk, dog park with a grooming station, expansive lawn areas and detached garages.


The EDEN Crystal Lake site is located within four miles of the pristine beaches of Daytona Beach, the Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach International Airport and LPGA headquarters. It is also near the I-95 and I-4 highways, major retail and dining, three post-secondary educational institutions and more than 72,000 healthcare industry employees. The nearby Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the No. 1 aeronautical engineering school in the world and the nation’s top aviation school.


Construction of EDEN Crystal Lake is scheduled for completion in mid-2022.


“Port Orange and the Daytona MSA fit perfectly with our broader strategy to target fast-growing employment centers that are underserved when it comes to Class A apartment options,” Jacobson said. “It is emerging as a convenient alternative to more dense and overpopulated Florida markets with an unparalleled quality of life.”


The Daytona MSA is projected to experience $3.96 billion in economic growth between 2020 and 2025, with a forecast of more than 39,400 new residents and 25,130 new jobs created.


IP Investment Management is an equity partner in EDEN Crystal Lake. The privately held real estate investment company is based in Singapore, with an expanding portfolio of U.S. multifamily assets.


MSA Architects is EDEN Crystal Lake’s architect. Summit Contracting Group is the general contractor for the project.


Cushman & Wakefield arranged the construction financing on behalf of EDEN.
