Infinity Shore Club Residences
JLL raised capital totaling $43.5 million for the development of Infinity Shore Club Residences, a 40-unit residential project in Seattle, Washington.

JLL announced today that it has raised capital totaling $43.5 million for the development of Infinity Shore Club Residences, a 40-unit, luxury, for-sale residential project in the desirable Alki Beach neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.

JLL worked on behalf of the developer, Vibrant Cities, to secure the construction financing through Man Group’s private markets investment manager, Man GPM, and Urbanite Capital.

Infinity Shore Club will comprise a mix of 40 one-, two- and three-bedroom waterfront homes averaging 1,553 livable square feet situated above a two-level, sub-grade parking garage. Located at 1250 Alki Avenue SW on the tip of the Duwamish Head of Alki Beach, the waterfront property provides unobstructed views of Elliott Bay, the Olympic Mountains and city views. The six-story project will also offer residents walking distance access to sandy Alki Beach, the West Seattle water taxi and direct access to public transportation to the downtown employment core. Due for completion in 2021, the project will feature an infinity pool that gives the appearance of water flowing from the integrated hot tub to the cool pool and down to a waterfall into the Puget Sound. Other amenities will include a rooftop deck with fire pit, sun deck and outdoor grilling/dining; large water-facing balconies with NanaWall technology in all homes; and eco-friendly, modern finishes, including LED lighting and high-end German-crafted appliances.

“The sleepy Seattle that I’ve called home since 1982 has evolved into the sleepless, fast-growth city that is home to global corporate giants and thousands of smaller tech and non-tech companies,” said James Wong, CEO of Vibrant Cities. “Infinity Shore Club is a one-of-a-kind waterfront project that will further lift Seattle’s reputation as a world-class city.”

“We’re grateful to partner with the team at JLL and our investors to make the dream of Infinity a reality,” added Ming Fung, co-founder and CFO of Vibrant Cities. “Having experienced other world-class cities like Hong Kong, Shanghai and Vancouver, we are honored to bring Infinity’s unmatched luxury to Seattle.”

The JLL Capital Markets team representing Vibrant Cities was led by Brandon Roth and Zack Goodwin, who have completed multiple projects with Vibrant.
