“Chinmay, Noam and Cody’s capital relationships have been transformative for the SBREP platform. Inclusive of the programmatic family office partnership, their involvement has been the rocket fuel to help turbocharge SBREP’s portfolio expansion across the Southwest since 2021.

 MIAMI (August 29, 2022) – Berkadia announces it has arranged $57.5 million in construction financing for Fourteen Residences Allapattah, a two tower, 237-unit apartment community located in Miami, Florida. Senior Managing Director Charles Foschini, Managing Director Chris Apone and Senior Analyst Shannon Wilson of Berkadia Miami secured the financing on behalf of Neology Life Development Group, a lifestyle-driven residential and commercial real estate firm led by Lissette Calderon. The property is located in a Qualified Opportunity Zone in the historic Allapattah section of downtown Miami.

 

Churchill Real Estate’s direct originations platform, led by Jeff Rosenfeld and Sean Robertson, originated the 24-month loan with two extension options. 

 

“Our client Neology continues to dominate the Allapattah skyline with an innovative team and projects whose ‘attainable luxury’ concept serves the needs of the community and integrates nicely within it,” said Foschini. “While the market continues to be extremely volatile, the lender recognized the strength of the sponsor, Neology’s track record in Allapattah, where this is its third project, and Lissette Calderon’s personal vision for the evolution of the Allapattah community.”

 

“This deal further solidifies Churchill’s commitment to support the development of workforce housing in Miami,” added Robertson, Churchill’s Director and Co-Head of Originations. “We are thrilled to execute this deal with Neology amid unstable market conditions.”

 

“Churchill continues to build on, and augment, its presence in the greater South Florida market,” added Rosenfeld, also Director and Co-Head of Originations at Churchill. “Despite macro headwinds, South Florida continues to benefit from favorable factors that give us the confidence to double down in this market.” 

 

Located at 1470 NW 36th Street, Fourteen Allapattah Residences will consist of a 14-story building with 180 apartment units connected via a pool deck to a five-story building with 57 apartments including ground floor walk ups. It will offer studio, one- and two-bedroom units ranging 450 to 900 square feet. Apartments will feature European-inspired cabinetry, quartz countertops, energy efficient kitchen appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, energy efficient AC and heating systems, and smart home technology adaptors. Lifestyle amenities will include curated original artwork, a multipurpose lobby, media lounges and living rooms, a rooftop pool and clubhouse, poolside cabanas, coworking spaces, conference rooms, outdoor movie screen, an indoor and outdoor fitness and wellness center, with a yoga and cardio studio, dog park with dog wash area, bike storage, virtual concierge and smart package lockers, and a parking garage with electric car charging stations as well as a ride share lobby.

 

The property, which will open in early 2024, enjoys a highly visible location on NW 36th Street just 5 minutes west of Wynwood and 10 minutes east of the Miami International Airport, close to the health district, which is the country’s largest concentration of medical and research facilities after Houston. It is just a short walk from the Allapattah Miami Metrorail Station, the Rubell Museum, and SuperBlue.

 

Neology’s portfolio now consists of more than 1,500 apartment units completed or under construction in Miami’s urban core, including The Julia, an upscale apartment community that will open in 2023, and Neology’s flagship Allapattah project, No. 17 Residences Allapattah, which opened in 2021 and leased up in record time.

Moderne Apartments, along with joint venture partner BCDC, will develop The Governor, with 176 units, and Moderne Arrowhead, with 182 units

PHOENIX  (August 31, 2022) – Berkadia announces it has sourced both a joint venture partner and a preferred equity provider for developer Moderne to build two new multifamily communities in Phoenix totaling 358 units: The Governor and Moderne Arrowhead.

 

Cody Kirkpatrick, Noam Franklin, and Chinmay Bhatt of Berkadia JV Equity & Structured Capital secured the joint venture equity partner, BCDC as well as the preferred equity provider, a Texas-based investment manager, who together contributed a total of $55.5 million to the two projects. Construction commenced on The Governor August 1, 2022 and is scheduled to commence on Moderne Arrowhead September 19, 2022.

Moderne is a Phoenix-based, fully integrated real estate alternative investment manager focused on community-centric apartment and townhome development. Collectively, the Moderne team has delivered more than 35,000 units since 1990.

 

BCDC is a fully integrated real estate organization providing development and capital solutions primarily through partnerships. Based in Atlanta, it offers a wide variety of real estate services, from development and construction to equity and credit enhancements, to brokerage and property management.

 

Continued coastal migration, robust employment growth, relative affordability, and good quality of life have strengthened the Phoenix multifamily sector in the past year, according to Berkadia Research. In 2021, Maricopa County was the fastest-growing county in the United States, and a record high 15,000 units were absorbed in 2021.

 

“Our team had the privilege to work with the experienced team at Moderne and we knew that BCDC would be excited to form a programmatic partnership with such local experts,” said Kirkpatrick. “The capital stack on both deals were with some of the top providers of capital in the ground up multifamily space and we are excited to see the finished product in 2024,” added Franklin.

 

Located at 1717 E. McDowell Road, The Governor is a five-story, mid-rise apartment community with a total of 176 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments averaging 739 square feet. The personal residence of Arizona’s first governor, W.P. Hunt, once stood on the project site, situated in the resurging Miracle Mile neighborhood. The preferred equity provider contributed $18.93 million in equity behind a $40.6 million senior loan by Pacific Western Bank. Completion is slated for June 2024.


Moderne Arrowhead is located at 15431 North 67th Avenue in Glendale, and is a three-story, garden-style apartment community with 182 units and surface parking. The property will offer studios, one- and two-bedrooms, and one-bedroom, one-bath carriage house units.

Located in the Palm Aire Golf Course community in Pompano Beach, Stellar at Palm Aire consists of 39 new townhomes surrounded by trails and golf course views

Pompano Beach, Fla. (September 2, 2022) – Berkadia announces it has arranged the sale and financing of Stellar at Palm Aire, a new build-for-rent community consisting of 39 townhomes located in the center of the Palm Aire Country Club in Pompano Beach, Fla. Senior Managing Directors Roberto Pesant and Jaret Turkell, along with Director Yoav Yuhjtman, Associate Director Omar Morales and Senior Analyst Jose Mota of Berkadia Miami, marketed the property on behalf of Stellar Communities. Pulso Capital purchased the property for $21.5 million, or $551,282 per unit.

Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, along with Managing Directors Matt Robbins, Scott Wadler and Brad Williamson, and Senior Analyst Michael Basinski of Berkadia Miami arranged the debt on behalf of the buyer. Steeprock provided the $14 million, fixed-rate, five-year loan at a 65 percent LTV, with full term interest only.

“In a region where for-sale housing has seen prices increase by up to 50 percent in some cases, Stellar at Palm Aire provides residents with a spacious, new-construction high-end property with private outdoor areas and luxurious finishes at a rent that is attainable,” said Pesant.

“We have a strong belief in the dynamics of the South Florida Market and are actively looking for the right opportunities for our group,” said Maor Benami, co-founder of Pulso Capital Group. “This unique, Class A Built-for-Rent product, coupled with our management capabilities, makes Stellar at Palm Aire a perfect fit for us as we continue to grow our portfolio.”

Effective rent in South Florida rose 25.2% year over year, according to Berkadia Research – driven by an influx of new residents and corporate migrations over the last 12 months.

Located halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton in a suburban setting west of I-95, Stellar at Palm Aire is the first new construction in the Palm Aire Golf Course

community in over 10 years. There are two-bedroom (1,475 square feet), three-bedroom (1,744) and four-bedroom floor plans (1,825 to 1,961) with rents ranging from $3550 a month to $4,350. Townhomes have attached garages. Its location in a peaceful community, surrounded by greenery, golf course views, walking, running & biking trails allows residents to enjoy the calm of suburban living while in close proximity to two of Florida’s main employment hubs. It is just 10 minutes from I-95, five minutes from the Florida Turnpike, and 15-20 minutes from both Downtown Fort Lauderdale and downtown Boca Raton.

Established in 2009, Stellar Communities is a full- service real estate development company with a progressive focus on eco-construction initiatives for residential communities. Since its inception, Stellar has helped over 2,500 families move into the next stage of their lives with a new home. With a deep-rooted commitment to quality and value, Stellar Communities builds inspiring homes and communities with unmatched efficiencies in some of the most highly sought-after coastal, urban, and suburban locations across South Florida.

Established in 2019, Pulso Capital Group, founded by Maor Benami and Salomon Kamkhaji, aims to improve lives while unleashing the total value of assets through conservative underwriting, appropriate financing arrangements, on-time constructions, and diligent property and asset management. The firm is actively focused on increasing its portfolio with value-add to Class A Built-for-Rent multifamily properties.

(August 16, 2022) – Berkadia announces it has arranged the $17.87 million recapitalization of The Enclave at St. Lucie West, a 91-unit townhome complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, Managing Director Matt Robbins and Vice President of Originations Abigail Beuchamp of Berkadia Boca Raton secured the financing on behalf of the ownership, Rich Properties, a builder and developer based in Port St. Lucie.

 

Freddie Mac provided the 10-year loan with five years of interest only.

Located at 150 Southwest Hidden Cove Way, The Enclave at St. Lucie West was built in 2007 and offers two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 1,314 to 1,683 square feet.

A joint venture between TruAmerica Multifamily and Oaktree purchased 
325 units at Arbors at Carrollwood


Tampa, Fla. (August 8, 2022) – 
Berkadia announces it has arranged financing for the acquisition of 325 units at Arbors at Carollwood, a core-plus opportunity within the highly sought-after Carollwood submarket of Tampa, Fla.  Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg and Managing Director Matthew Robbins of Berkadia Boca Raton, along with Managing Directors Brad Williamson and Scott Wadler of Berkadia Miami, secured acquisition financing on behalf of the buyer, a joint venture between TruAmerica Multifamily and funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”), both based in Los Angeles.

 

A bank provided a floating-rate loan with a five-year term.

 

“The Arbors at Carollwood offered investors a unique opportunity to acquire the premiere multifamily asset in one of Tampa’s top performing submarkets, where there is no new apartment supply,” said Robbins. “This property is a newly renovated, exceptionally maintained condo-quality asset in an affluent community that is walkable to over 2.6 million square feet of retail, offering a best-in-class amenity package as well as the opportunity for the new ownership to develop more units on the site.”

 

Built in 2001 by ZOM, Arbors at Carollwood is a garden-style apartment community consisting of 15 three-story buildings and a clubhouse located on 56 acres at 3939 Ehrlich Road. The property offers one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans including loft-style units with vaulted ceilings and a second-story den. Apartments range from 769 to 1,499 square feet and include open floor plans, nine-foot ceilings, wood-plank flooring, full-size washer/dryer, and gourmet kitchens with designer cabinets, granite or quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.

It is close to University of South Florida, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Advent Health Hospital, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and numerous retail and shopping destinations including Sprouts, Whole Foods, Target, Sam's Club, Starbucks and restaurants.
