JLL Capital Markets announced it secured a $15.85 million financing for Ariel Springs, a garden-style, multihousing property located in Spring Hill, Florida, about 50 miles north of Downtown Tampa.
JLL represented the borrower, Beachwold Residential, to secure the fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo lender.
Beachwold Residential acquired the property in Dec. 2018, landing $44 million in acquisition financing also through Freddie Mac. This financing is the first supplemental loan on the property, a result of the borrower’s capital enhancement, immense demand for quality, professionally managed apartments in the market, and the Tampa area’s rent growth through the pandemic. The ability to repatriate equity through this substantial supplemental loan represents one of the many benefits of Freddie Mac financing.
Ariel Springs is currently 97.7 percent occupied and consists of 470 one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Since acquisition, Beachwold Residential has invested nearly $3 million in renovations to both the interior and exterior of the highly-amenitized property. Community features include a clubhouse, community car wash, entertainment area with a full kitchen, modern fitness center, swimming pool, business center and shuffleboard and basketball courts.
Ariel Spring is located at 3454 Suncoast Villa Way, in the quaint city of Spring Hill, and in close proximity to various neighborhood amenities, including local dining and shopping, and direct access to the 42-mile Suncoast Bike Trail.
The JLL Capital Markets team representing Beachwold was led by Senior Managing Directors Elliott Throne and Mona Carlton, Director Jesse Wright and Associate Kenny Cutler.
“One of the many great attributes of an agency loan is the borrower can garner additional proceeds after improving the property’s NOI,” stated Throne. “Beachwold’s immense success at this asset has enabled them to pull out a significant amount of their equity thru additional financing from Freddie Mac at an interest rate very close to what they have on the original senior loan.”
According to JLL’s latest United States Multi-Housing Outlook, the Tampa Bay multihousing market held steady throughout 2020 and heading into 2021. Occupancies remained at or above 95 percent over the past five years and overall remaining resilient amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The report also states that Florida has been the net-beneficiary of in-bound migration throughout the past 12 months due to its world class beaches and favorable business climate, driving relocations to the state.
