Native Realty Completes Record Transaction in Fort Lauderdale’s Victoria Park Neighborhood

Sara Dorman

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL –– Native Realty, the pioneering Fort Lauderdale commercial real estate firm led by Jaime Sturgis, has closed the record-breaking sale of an Airbnb rental property in the city’s popular Victoria Park neighborhood.

The firm’s Sara Dorfman, a multifamily specialist, was the exclusive listing agent for the 4-unit building located at 808-812 NE 16th Terrace. Grandeview LLC sold the property to TransAmerica Group, Inc. The transaction closed on May 23.

Jaime Sturgis
At $1.65 million, the sale price is Victoria Park’s highest since at least 2006, according to Multiple Listing Service data. The $412,500 price per door – or unit – is the most expensive in the history of the neighborhood.

The 4,514-square-foot building includes a single-family residence plus in-law suite, a triplex, swimming pool and 10 off-street parking spaces.

Constructed in 1954, the building recently underwent extensive interior renovations to all of the units. The seller operated the property as an Airbnb rental, and the buyer plans to continue doing so.

“I want to congratulate Sara on setting new standards for a Victoria Park neighborhood that has a rich history as one of Fort Lauderdale’s hidden gems,” Sturgis said. “She has been a tremendous addition to our firm. This transaction is another example of how Native Realty is at the forefront of urban core neighborhoods across all real estate sectors.”

Structured Development Retains CBRE to Market Retail Space in Planned 260,000 SF Mixed-Use Development in North Chicago, IL

Rendering of Planned Sheridan Crossing Mixed-Use Development, North Chicago, IL

CHICAGO, IL — A joint venture of Chicago-based Structured Development and Carly Partners LLC announced it has retained CBRE Group Inc., the world's largest commercial real estate services and investment firm, to market more than 76,000 square feet of retail space at Sheridan Crossing, a planned 37-acre mixed-use development across from the Naval Station Great Lakes in North Chicago, Ill.

Mary Bresnahan
CBRE Vice President Mary Bresnahan and Senior Vice President Kim McGuire will lead marketing efforts for the project at the corner of Sheridan Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

The multi-phase development, comprising a total of more than 260,000 square feet, will be anchored by a 107-room limited-service hotel and a 10-screen movie theater. 

In addition, an adjacent property will be the future home of the National Museum of the American Sailor, which is expected to host more than 450,000 visitors annually when completed. 

“We are collaborating with city and state officials and other local stakeholders to make Sheridan Crossing a marquee mixed-use development – one that will have an extremely positive economic impact in North Chicago,” said Jeff Berta, senior director of real estate development at Structured Development.

Kim McGuire
 “The national retailers that already have expressed interest would offer the community experiences currently unavailable in the immediate area. In retaining CBRE, we’re confident we will be able to build on this momentum and move one step closer to realizing our vision for this first-of-its-kind project.”

Structured Development is exploring a variety of uses that, together, will establish Sheridan Crossing as a vibrant commercial district. These include a bowling alley, microbrewery, several restaurants, a full-service grocer, pharmacy and medical offices. The developer hopes to break ground sometime this year. 

Jeff Berta
“This project will serve as a catalyst for investment in North Chicago, serving full-time residents and the thousands of recruits enrolled at the adjacent naval station, whose frequent graduation ceremonies draw in additional visitors,” said Bresnahan

“Sheridan Crossing presents a rare opportunity for retailers to plant their flag in an underserved market with high growth potential.”

In addition to offering proximity to Naval Station Great Lakes, Sheridan Crossing is minutes from the corporate headquarters of both Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie. 

Also nearby are multiple educational and medical institutions, including Rosalind Franklin University, the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center and the new Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital campus.

The Chicago and Irvine, Calif., offices of KTGY Architecture + Planning are serving as architect on the planned development.

Hanley Investment Group Lists Rare 12.60-Acre Mixed-Use Shopping Center Development Opportunity in the Heart of Santa Clarita, CA

Former Site of  Kmart-Anchored Shopping Center,
23126-23170 Valencia Boulevard, Santa Clarita, CA

SANTA CLARITA, CA -- Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally-recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced the firm has been awarded the listing of a 12.60-acre former Kmart-anchored shopping center property located in the heart of Santa Clarita, California.

The property, owned by a private family, is situated within the MXC Mixed-Use zoning corridor of Santa Clarita, which allows up to 30.0 units per acre for residential with ground-floor commercial (1.0 max for floor area ratio (FAR) commercial), according to Hanley Investment Group.

Carlos Lopez
 Executive Vice President Carlos Lopez and Vice President Lee Csenar are the exclusive listing agents and are marketing the property for sale unpriced.

“The offering provides a buyer with the rare opportunity to purchase a development site of this size within the core of Santa Clarita,” said Lopez. “Due to the short-term nature of the leases in place and the mixed-use zoning, there is tremendous flexibility and the potential to be creative for potential developers and the city of Santa Clarita. For example, the property could be developed as 100 percent retail or a combination of retail and residential.”

Lee Csenar
The property is located at 23126-23170 Valencia Blvd., at the busiest intersection in Santa Clarita, Valencia Boulevard and Bouquet Canyon Road, which has 100,000 cars per day. 

The 12.60-acre site currently houses a 120,559-square-foot shopping center built in 1972. Taco Bell is located on a single-tenant outparcel as part of the offering.

“All existing leases will expire by 2024 (except Taco Bell’s lease), allowing an investor to collect annual cash flow while obtaining entitlements,” said Csenar. “Taco Bell’s lease expires in 2032, which allows an investor to individually parcel and potentially sell it separately to take advantage of historically low cap rates.”

Davis Hotel Capital and F10 Hotels Join Forces to Bolster Capital Markets and Expand Investment Sales

Renny Goldstein

TAMPA, FL — Officials of Davis Hotel Capital, a premier investment banking firm with a focus on hospitality real estate, and F10 Hotels, one of the hotel industry’s highest volume mortgage brokers, announced the two companies have joined forces to provide clients with enhanced and expanded hotel investment advisory and financial services. 

Geoff Davis and Angelo Stambules from Davis Hotel Capital are assuming senior level roles within the F10 platform.  
“The hotel industry was said by the ‘experts’ to have peaked in 2013, yet here we are five years later with most markets across the United States still remaining healthy," according to Renny Goldstein.

Geoff Davis
  "While historically low interest rates have buoyed returns, new supply is a concern of both lenders and equity investors.  That’s why it’s critical at this stage of the cycle to have seasoned expertise in structuring capital. 
"F10 is recognized as a capital markets leader, which Angelo and I certainly complement with our track records.  At the same time, my investment sales experience will allow F10 to increase our presence in hotel brokerage. 
"With over 800 hotel sales on my resume, representing in excess of $12 billion of transactions, we see the opportunity to combine our capital markets skills with the ability to provide a targeted approach on investment sales to produce exceptional results for our clients.”
  Goldstein added, “We have always been proud of working with a full range of clients, from mom and pop hotel owners to institutional investors and everyone in-between. 

Angelo Stambules
"F10 provides each client with the same high touch level of service, while our attention to detail in presenting underwriting materials has engendered a unique level of trust from our capital sources.  "
"We see Geoff and Angelo as valuable additions who share the same philosophy and have the reputation to back it up.”
In addition to placing permanent, bridge and constructions loans, F10 Hotels also provides capital advisory services to arrange mezzanine debt, preferred equity and joint venture equity.  With offices in Florida, Texas, Colorado and the District of Columbia, the company intends to broaden its efforts in hotel investment sales.

                F10 Hotels structures and raises debt and equity capital for hotel transactions nationwide.  The company solves complex financial problems by creating efficient capital solutions for clients of all sizes.    Additional information may be found at
