Trez Forman funds $8 million value-add acquisition loan for 106-unit apartment community in Jacksonville


A real estate investor has secured an $8.1 million loan from Trez Forman Capital to help acquire and renovate a 106-unit waterfront apartment community in Jacksonville’s south side.  Built in 1972, the Beauclerc Bay Apartments features nine 1-and-2-story buildings on three acres of land.  The property is ideally located on a creek next to a boat ramp that provides quick and easy access to the St. John’s River.

“The multifamily market in Jacksonville remains strong due to job and population growth and we believe there is still room for significant rent appreciation,” said Brett D. Forman, president and CEO of Trez Forman who originated the loan. “Once our client makes the significant improvements he has planned, he will be able to attract new residents and raise rents to market rates, but still at a better value than what new apartments are commanding.”

Forman said the borrower will immediately renovate 27 units that are off line due to damage caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017 and then all other residences as they turn over.  Other renovations include roof repairs, a new seawall, improvements to the clubhouse and pool area and new landscaping.

The Beauclerc Bay Apartments are located at 9047 San Jose Blvd., Jacksonville, FL.
