Berkadia announces it has secured $28.35 million in combined financing for the acquisition of two multifamily communities in Brandon, Florida. Bayshore Investment Partners, a Miami-based private equity firm, acquired Avenue at Creekbridge, a 112-unit apartment community for $22.45 million that was rebranded to Creekbridge Crossing Apartments and Westwood at 60, an 88-unit apartment community for $18.05 million that was rebranded to Westwood Crossing Apartments.
Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg of Berkadia Boca Raton and Managing Director Brad Williamson of Berkadia Miami secured a $15.71 million loan for Avenue at Creekbridge and $12.63 million for Westwood at 60.
Freddie Mac originated both loans, which are seven-year full term interest-only loans with a competitive fixed interest rate.
“Berkadia was successful in obtaining a very attractive interest only financing for these acquisitions to help our client maximize overall cash-on-cash returns,” said Williamson.
