$4.4 Million Sale of 20-Unit Apartment Building in Miami Beach, FL Brokered by Marcus & Millichap


850 Meridian Avenue apartments, Miami Beach, FL

MIAMI BEACH, FL, Nov. 2, 2013 – Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, the nation’s largest real estate investment services firm, has announced the sale of a 20-unit, condominium-quality apartment property located in Miami Beach, FL.

Arthur D. Porosoff
 The asset sold for $4,400,000 representing $220,000 per unit and $349 per square foot.

The seller of the property, a developer based in Portugal, was represented by Arthur D. Porosoff, a Vice President Investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Miami office.

“This deal marks one of the highest price-per-unit transactions in the South Beach market and is evident of the increased demand from foreign - and domestic investors alike - for condominium-quality assets renting as apartments,” says Porosoff.

“This was a great opportunity for the buyer to earn a solid return with complete ease of management.  Due to the lack of renovated product in the market, the investor will have the opportunity to increase rents as leases expire.”

The 850 Meridian project commenced with just the non-demolishable, historic art deco concrete block shell. The interior finishes include modern kitchens, hardwood floors and updated modern bathrooms. The property is located steps from Lincoln Road, Ocean Drive and Espanola Way at 850 Meridian Avenue in Miami Beach, FL.

Aventura Optima Plaza in Aventura, FL Welcomes its First Tenants

   
Aventura Optima Plaza, 215000 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura, FL

MIAMI, FL- Colliers International South Florida is pleased to announce that Aventura Optima Plaza, a 114,000-square-foot Class A office and medical complex located at 21500 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura, has been granted a temporary certificate of occupancy and is welcoming its first tenants.

Randy Olen
Colliers International South Florida's Executive Vice President Randy Olen, exclusively represents the Aventura Optima complex, which is on track to be only the second high-rise office building in Florida to be certified LEED Platinum, and the first in Aventura.

 "The internationally-recognized distinction of excellence in sustainability is a plus for the building's owners, and for those who will occupy it," said Olen.
 
The new project's first tenants are a mix of local and international firms including KAWA Capital Management, Inc. which recently signed a seven-year lease for the entire seventh floor (11,400 square feet).


Steven Hurwitz
The tenant was represented by Steven Hurwitz of CREC. KAWA Capital Management will join The Bloom Organization, already an occupant, along with Morales Law Group, Nexsys International, L.C. and Dolce Living Investments, LLC.

These tenants signed leases earlier this year and are expected to move in during the next several months. Olen expects to finalize lease agreements with three additional prospective tenants for a total of approximately 20,000 square feet during the fourth quarter.
 
Aventura Optima Plaza consists of a nine-story east tower fronting Biscayne Boulevard, a four-story west building, and a 457-space parking structure that links the two with a 20,000-square foot landscaped jogging trail on the roof.
 
Developers Jose Bromberg and Ariel Bromberg of Inmobiliaria Brom have built multiple upscale buildings in their native Mexico. Arquitectos Brom Asociados designed the $35 million Aventura Optima Plaza project in association with Behar Font Partners of Coral Gables. The project features a sophisticated, eco-friendly design with access from Biscayne Boulevard and convenient drop-off areas at both the east and west building entrances.

"We decided to come to South Florida, and bring our investors to Florida, to start developing cutting-edge buildings, where quality would be a main issue," Ariel Bromberg said in an interview.

 "We think building sustainable projects is the only way to go, not just because we are environmentally conscious, but because we believe corporations are looking for that."
 
The building is the first in South Florida to have a double skin fa├žade, with special hurricane proof glazing. The southern side of the building will feature solar panels that are decorative and produce 48KV of electricity daily.

A 20,000-square foot landscaped "green roof" will top the garage building, with a jogging trail, exercise rooms, juice bar and restrooms. A terrace on the fifth level of the garage structure connects the two buildings and features fountains and reclaimed wood decks with landscaped seating areas.
 
"Prospective tenants are impressed with the project's environmentally conscious design, the quality of construction and overall amenities available at Aventura Optima Plaza," said Olen.

Chatham Lodging Acquires Residence Inn in Downtown Bellevue, WA

  
Residence Inn by Marriott Seattle Bellevue/Downtown Hotel, Bellevue, WA


PALM BEACH, FL—Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE: CLDT), a hotel real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on investing in upscale, extended-stay hotels and premium branded, select-service hotels, today announced that it has acquired the 231-room Residence Inn by Marriott Seattle Bellevue/Downtown for a net cash purchase price of $71.8 million, plus customary, pro-rated amounts and closing costs. 

Jeffrey H. Fisher
The purchase price represents a forward twelve month capitalization rate of approximately 7.8 percent on the hotel’s projected net operating income.  

Year to date through September 30, 2013, RevPAR at the Bellevue hotel is up 13% to $131.

The urban, mid-high rise hotel opened in 2008 and is situated along Interstate 405 (the area’s primary corridor), providing immediate access to downtown Bellevue’s 7.5 million square feet of Class “A” office space inventory, including the region’s high concentration of top-tier technology and telecommunications firms, such as Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia, T-Mobile and AT&T.

Peter Willis
The Bellevue market has undergone a major transformation over the past ten plus years into a premier, 24-hour, live-work-play environment.

“We are very excited to acquire one of the highest rated hotels in the Residence Inn by Marriott system, a superior quality property on an urban, infill site in one of the most desirable west coast corporate markets,” said Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s chief executive officer. 

“This hotel aligns perfectly with our strategy of acquiring coastal area hotels where demand is driven primarily by corporate travelers focused in the ever-growing technology, energy or medical sectors.”

“The Seattle/Bellevue market has been on our radar for some time given our deep understanding of the market and its growth prospects based on our many years of experience in the Seattle market, including the Bellevue market, through our ownership of four Residence Inns in the Innkeepers joint venture and Island Hospitality’s operation of the hotels,” says Peter Willis, Chatham’s chief investment officer.


“It is a competitive advantage for Chatham to be able to leverage Island’s knowledge of a market and diligently assess an acquisition. 

"We expect great returns from this hotel. We have a very active and deep pipeline of prospective targets and intend to use capacity on our balance sheet to acquire hotels that meet our strict underwriting criteria.”

The Residence Inn by Marriott Seattle Bellevue/Downtown is managed by Island Hospitality Management (IHM), which is 90 percent owned by Mr. Fisher. Chatham funded the purchase with available cash and borrowings on its secured revolving credit facility of $59 million.

IRVINE, CA – HFF announced it has secured a $43 million refinancing for Fairwood Shopping Center and Oswego Village Center, grocery-anchored, community shopping centers in Renton, Washington and Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Fairwood Shopping Center, 14060 SE Petrovitsky Road
Renton, WA
               Working on behalf of the borrower, Terramar Retail Centers, HFF placed the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with Prudential Mortgage Capital Company.  Loan proceeds were used to refinance existing loans on the properties.

 HFF was able to secure a forward rate lock in May 2013 and the loan closed when the existing debt was open for prepayment in October.  

As a result of the increase in the treasury rates between May and October, the rate is well below the current market level.

Don Curtis
               Fairwood Shopping Center is located at 14060 SE Petrovitsky Road close to Interstate 405 about 12 miles southeast of downtown Seattle.  The 214,834-square-foot center is anchored by Safeway and is 90.4 percent leased.  Additional tenants include a new LA Fitness and Ace Hardware.

               Oswego Village Center is located at 101 South State Street about seven miles south of downtown Portland.  The 89.1 percent leased property has 86,416 square feet and is anchored by Albertsons and Ace Hardware.

               The HFF team representing Terramar Retail Centers was led by senior managing director Don Curtis and associate director Greg Brown.

Greg Brown
               Terramar Retail Centers is a privately-held commercial investment, management and development company.  Founded in 1996, the company has acquired, managed and leased more than 6.5 million square feet of retail shopping centers and has entitled more than one million square feet of development projects.

Trepp Reports US CMBS Delinquency Rate Breaks 8% Threshold, Gains to Continue in 2013






Joe McBride
NEW YORK, NY -Trepp, LLC, the leading provider of information, analytics and technology to the CMBS, commercial real estate, and banking markets, released its October 2013 US CMBS Delinquency Report today (available at http://www.trepp.com/knowledge/research).

 For the first time since early 2010, the Trepp CMBS delinquency rate fell below the 8% level. October’s decrease marks the fifth consecutive month of rate improvement.

The rate dropped 16 basis points over the course of the month, bringing the 30+ day delinquency rate for US commercial real estate loans in CMBS to 7.98%. The percentage of loans seriously delinquent is now 7.69%

“The government may have shut down this month, but special servicers took no time off,” said Joe McBride, a Research Analyst at Trepp. “Almost $1 billion in CMBS loans were disposed with losses in October, as servicers continue to work through troubled loans, especially in the retail sector. Much of the improvement in the retail delinquency rate comes from this ‘cleaning out’ of the distressed pipeline.”

Manus Clancy
 While 2013 is almost over, Trepp expects to see more improvement in the rate before year-end. CWCapital’s impending sale of more than $2.5 billion of distressed assets could result in a 50-basis-point decrease, assuming the sales close prior to the December remittance cycle.

 “In addition to the distressed assets that were recently identified for sale, a large number of note sales are also expected from the servicer,” said Manus Clancy, Senior Managing Director of Trepp.

 “As CW stated that it is looking to sell these before year-end, this could result in the removal of a number of loans from the delinquent category over the next 60 days.”

Fed Shutdown Triggers Tightened Mortgage Spreads and Lower Rates





Jeanne Peck
Chicago, IL – The Real Estate Capital Institute reports the federal government shutdown resulted in another month of tightening mortgage spreads and lower rates. Loans are dipping below 5% for longer-term leverage on a more regular basis.

Funding sources scramble to identify attractive yields with lower risk profiles, but the dearth of capital leads to tremendous competition as noted by the following:

1.    Overall permanent mortgage rates start in the lower 4% range for 10 year funds, and about a percent lower for shorter-term five year funds. Such rates are about a quarter percent lower than the end of summer.

2.    Although overall rates are steady, spreads tightened by about 10 basis points for premier quality assets.




3.    More lenders are venturing into non-conventional property types, especially hotels, student housing, self-storage, etc. In many cases, these properties are now being reclassified as "conventional", especially for lower leverage financing which is often as competitive as for conventional assets.

4.    As a permanent loan arena is very crowded, more bridge lenders appear in the marketplace, particularly Wall Street and credit companies regularly competing with banks for such debt.

5.    Leverage rising for adjustable-rate mortgages and lenders tried to provide floors of 4% for ten-year debt on both fixed and floating rate product.

6.    Equity funds expanding into single family home development as housing prices rebound in many parts of the country.

7.    Class A, suburban office buildings gain more investor attention for both debt and equity as too many players are crowded out of the multifamily, retail and industrial sectors due to very low yields.

According to the Real Estate Capital Institute's Jeanne Peck notes,
"Borrowers are enjoying a resurgence of lower rates versus a midyear spike".


She suggests, "Now is as good a time as any to take advantage of low fixed rates and flexible floating-rate deals as lenders offer more leverage than in the past. It feels like 2003 to 2005 again".

The Real Estate Capital Institute(r) is a volunteer-based research organization that tracks realty rates data for debt and equity yields.  The Institute posts daily and historical benchmark rates including treasuries, bank prime and LIBOR.

CHICAGO, IL– Related Midwest announced today the much-anticipated topping off of 111 West Wacker Drive, the developer’s new 60-story iconic apartment tower that will open at Wacker and Clark Street along the Chicago River in 2014.

Curt Bailey
 The topping off marks the most recent milestone in Related Midwest’s redevelopment of the high-profile site, which was originally planned as the home of the Waterview Tower and planned Shangri-La Hotel and luxury condominiums.

 Construction under the site’s original developer reached the 28th floor before stalling in 2008. Related Midwest acquired the site through the Related Real Estate Recovery Fund in 2011 and resumed construction on the concrete shell in October 2012. 

Chicago Night Skyline
“This has been one of Chicago’s most-watched development sites in recent history,” said Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest. 

“We know Chicagoans have been extremely interested in the progress, which is why their support and anticipation for its opening next year makes the building’s topping off today even more special – and not just for us, but for the city.

“We’ve worked hard to create a building that pays tribute to such an unparalleled location in a city known for world-class architecture,” Bailey continued. “As we near completion, it is incredibly exciting to see the design unfold and witness 111 West Wacker taking its place in Chicago’s skyline.”

When complete, 111 West Wacker will feature 504 luxury apartments offering a best-in-class residential experience encompassing exclusive designer finishes, a full floor of exceptional amenities, a suite of hotel-level services, and a premier location overlooking the Chicago River and bridging the Loop business district and River North neighborhood.

Chicago's South Loop District
The building will offer studios, convertibles, and one-, two- and three-bedroom residences including penthouses. First move-ins are slated for summer 2014.

Related Midwest has assembled an elite team of partners for the project including Lend Lease U.S. Construction, New York-based architect Handel Architects and Chicago-based Kara Mann Design (KMD). The building is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification.
