Trez Capital Provides $78 Million Construction Financing for Miami Apartment Project

Trez Capital, a private real estate lender that finances commercial and residential real estate projects in the U.S., recently provided a $78.1 million construction loan for a 323-unit mid-rise apartment building in Miami’s emerging Allapattah neighborhood. The borrower is Neology Life, a development company led by Lissette Calderon, focused on transforming the Miami River District.

Trez Capital Managing Director Ben Jacobson originated the loan, which closed on Oct. 12. Construction has already begun, with the project set to be delivered in mid-2023.

“Lissette Calderon is a pioneering developer who has been extremely successful revitalizing the Miami River District and now breathing new life into Allapattah, one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods,” Jacobson says. “We are delighted to partner on this exciting project by providing financing for a development that is sure to capture intense interest from the public.”

Allapattah sits just northwest of downtown Miami with the Wynwood district to the east. The 12-story project, known as The Julia, is located at 1625 NW 20th St. The name pays homage to Julia Tuttle, known as the “Mother of Miami,” who is credited with being the only female founder of Miami.

The building will feature a mix of one and two-bedroom units ranging from 586 square feet to 892 square feet. Residents will have access to many amenities, including a pool with cabanas, rooftop garden with outdoor living, fitness and wellness center, coffee bar, dog park and virtual concierge.

The multifamily market in South Florida continues to be in demand, with rent increases expected to grow between 8% and 9% over the next year, according to CoStar Group, a provider of commercial real estate information. Another report from Realtor.com says South Florida is the third-fastest growing rental market in the U.S.

“When we evaluate lending opportunities, we focus on the needs of a community and the track record of the developer,” Jacobson says. “Partnering with Lissette and understanding her vision, we think Allapattah is perfectly positioned to attract nearby working professionals and families who desire a certain level of luxury living but are priced out of places like Brickell, Downtown, and Wynwood.”

Trez Capital has offices in Palm Beach and is on pace to originate about $2 billion in loans by the end of 2021.
