THE ESTATE COMPANIES SECURES $36M CONSTRUCTION LOAN FOR LUXURY RENTALS IN MIAMI'S HEALTH DISTRIC
The Estate Companies, a leading developer of luxury multi-family developments throughout South Florida, has secured a $36 million construction loan from Bank OZK for Soleste Spring Gardens, an eight-story Class A, 240-unit luxury rental community at 1033 Spring Garden Rd. within the Miami’s historically designated Spring Garden district and Health District. The closing took place September 9th.
Soleste Spring Gardens will offer studios, one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 400 to 1,100 square feet. Like all projects within the Soleste Living brand portfolio, Soleste Spring Gardens will be a highly amenitized development with a vast collection of health and wellness offerings, social components and pet-friendly features, including a resort-style pool with spacious sun deck and private cabanas, outdoor kitchen and bar, dog park, pet spa, yoga lawn and electric car charging stations.
“Soleste Spring Gardens represents a major investment in the historic Spring Gardens District, an area we have been extremely bullish on for quite some time,” stated Jeffrey Ardizon, principal, The Estate Companies. “We have a strong track record of strengthening neighborhoods by offering luxury rentals at an attainable price point. I take my hat off to Bank OZK, along with all of our partners, for their continued commitment and confidence in our business plan. The entire team worked tirelessly to get this project financed in record time.”
Ardizon added, “The Miami Health District is home to the nation’s premier medical and research programs and a growing hub for the biotech industry. We look forward to delivering a Class A community to this quaint yet burgeoning area.”
Soleste Spring Gardens offers a bevy of conveniences for working professionals who will value its central location and access to public transportation. The site is just two blocks from the Culmer Metrorail Station, which provides a six-minute ride to the Brightline rail stop, and abuts on one of Miami’s main arteries, the Dolphin Expressway. Soleste Spring Gardens is also less than three miles from Brickell and the Downtown Miami office market, which represents the largest office market in South Florida, and is in close proximity to Downtown Miami’s Arts & Entertainment District, Midtown Miami, the Miami Design District and Wynwood.
Miami’s Health District is the second-largest medical district in the U.S. after Houston with approximately 30,000 employees and home to world-famous Jackson Memorial Hospital and the University of Miami Hospital.
The Estate Companies is also developing Miami’s second large-scale opportunity zone development, Soleste Grand Central in Downtown Miami, and recently acquired of a five-acre site occupied by a former Ramada Hotel in Hialeah with plans for redevelopment. In addition to Soleste Spring Gardens, the firm plans to break ground on two new projects this year in Dania Beach and North Miami Beach.
