Miami  – Cohen Financial, a national real estate capital services firm, today announced that it has secured a $27.692 million construction loan for the BrickellHouse Condominiums, a 46 floor high-rise property located on 1390 Brickell Avenue in Miami, Florida. The building was well under construction prior to the closing of the loan.  The property will feature 374 units and is one of the first large condominium developments in Brickell to start construction in the current cycle. The building is substantially sold out.
Daniel R. Sheehan, Senior Managing Director and Eric McGlynn, Director of Cohen Financial’s Miami Office originated the construction loan with an institutional real estate debt fund.  The loan closed within a few weeks towards the end of November. 
“The lender was extremely responsive as they know the market well and were familiar with the asset,” said Mr. Sheehan. “This is an attractive property because the developer was far along in construction, had been on time and on budget, therefore, coupled with the low leverage, the loan was a very attractive investment for the lender, prompting them to act quickly.  BrickellHouse has a first-mover advantage in the Brickell submarket, which has continued to strengthen since construction commenced.”
