HFF arranges $19.9 million financing for a newly constructed suburban Miami office building

MIAMI, FL – The Miami office of HFF (Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P.) announced today that it has arranged $19.9 million in financing for a newly constructed, 150,000-square-foot, Class A office building in Doral, Florida.
HFF senior managing director Paul Stasaitis (middle right photo), executive managing director Manny de Zárraga (middle left photo) and senior real estate analyst Ignacio Portuondo worked exclusively on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between the Codina Partners and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, to secure the two-year, floating-rate loan through Bank of  America Merrill Lynch.  
The property is located within Downtown Doral, formerly known as Doral Center, adjacent to the Doral Resort and in close proximity to The Palmetto, the 836 Expressway, the Florida Turnpike and Miami International Airport.

 The property is the first LEED certified office building in Doral and is 29% leased overall.
“Downtown Doral is in the midst of a significant redevelopment, which will transform it into a mixed-use, town-center concept and this premier addition is a key component to just that vision,” said Stasaitis.  “Further, the high level of sponsorship we have here, along with their commitment and vision for Downtown Doral, played strongly in gaining lender confidence in this loan placement.”
