Miami-based Whitman Family Development secured $550 million in financing for the expansion of the iconic Bal Harbour Shops, a 463,114-square-foot, open-air, luxury shopping destination in Bal Harbour, FL. The loan is one of the largest construction loans ever to close in Miami.
The fully-leased, global center is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, and is located at 9700 Collins Ave. on 17.42 acres along Miami Beach.
HFF’s Manny de Zárraga, Chris Drew, Jim Dockerty and Matthew McCormack placed the $150 million, eight-year, fixed- and the $400 million floating-rate construction facility with MetLife Investment Management. Loan proceeds will be used to retire an existing loan and a 300,000-square-foot expansion of Bal Harbour Shops.
