MG Developer, led by Alirio Torrealba, announces it has secured a $67.5 million construction loan from Churchill Real Estate to build the highly anticipated Village at Coral Gables development, with groundbreaking expected this July.

Exclusively sold by One Sotheby’s International Realty, The Village at Coral Gables, located at 535 Santander Avenue, is a 48-residence collection featuring: Townhomes, Lofts, Villas, and Flats. The assembly of the project will pay homage to the aesthetic beauty and lifestyle of Seville, Spain, and continue the legacy of the dreamer and founder of Coral Gables, George Merrick, and his vision for “The City Beautiful.” This new enclave is being created to honor the city’s past while building for discerning buyers looking for modern-day luxurious comforts.

“We are truly excited to now be entering the construction phase of The Village at Coral Gables”, said Alirio Torrealba, CEO of MG Developer. “It’s been a true labor of love, from the initial planning phase to now. I couldn’t be prouder to be partnering with Churchill to provide the financing for this highly anticipated community. We are looking forward to a fruitful and long-term relationship for more projects in the future that will continue to elevate the City of Coral Gables.”

The Village at Coral Gables will be set throughout 17 lots, bordered by Malaga Avenue, Santander Avenue, Segovia Street, and Hernando Street. The townhomes, lofts, villas, and flats will vary in style and size, from the sophisticated flats of two bedrooms with a study room and a balcony to the charming four-bedroom townhomes that range from 1,750 square feet to 3,100 square feet. Inspired by Merrick’s seven villages, The Village at Coral Gables will be built in a Mediterranean Revival-Style Architecture, designed by De La Guardia Victoria Architects & Urbanists, and integrate gardens, courtyards, and fountains inspired by the alcoves in the Plaza de España.

“We are thrilled to partner with MG Developer for the financing of The Village at Coral Gables,” added Jeff Rosenfeld who, along with Sean Robertson, Co-Heads Originations at Churchill Real Estate. “MG Developer has a strong track record of delivering exceptional projects, and we are excited about MG bringing this highly anticipated development to life.
