TAMPA, FL – Berkadia announces it has arranged the sale and financing of Grand Pavilion, a 264-unit garden-style multifamily community located in Tampa. Senior Managing Director Cole Whitaker and Managing Director Jason Stanton of Berkadia’s Tampa and Orlando offices listed the property on behalf of the seller, ESG Kullen. Berkadia worked in conjunction on transaction with BlueGate Partners, LLC out of New York, represented by Mark DeLillo and Craig Callaway.

Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg and Associate Director Matt Robbins of Berkadia’s Boca Raton office originated $24.4 million in financing via Freddie Mac on behalf of the buyer, Praxis Capital, which acquired the property for $32.77 million.  The 10-year, floating-rate loan offered an attractive rate and five years interest only.

“This property recently received $3 million in upgrades and is well positioned to compete with similar vintage product in this submarket with modest improvements to the unit interiors,” said Stanton.

Located at 3110 Grand Pavilion Drive, Grand Pavilion was built in 1984 and offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 540 square feet to 873 square feet. Apartments feature new carpet and plank flooring, a screened in patio or balcony, walk-in closets, and in some units, kitchens have been updated with new appliances, hardware and cabinetry. Community amenities include a new state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool with sundeck, outdoor picnic/grill area, tot lot/playground, bark park, clubhouse lounge, game room, and package receiving area.
