Firm arranges $137M construction loan for 59-unit luxury waterfront condominium units in South Beach

MIAMI, May 14, 2018 —JLL's Capital Markets experts arranged $137 million in financing with Madison Realty Capital for the construction of Monad Terrace in Miami Beach, Florida. The construction loan was secured on behalf of JDS Development Group.

Vice Chairman Aaron Appel led the JLL Capital Markets professionals handling the debt assignment. Appel worked closely with Michael Stern, CEO, of JDS Development, which is developing the project with partners New Valley LLC, Ackerman Development and Mink Development.

"JLL was able to close one of the largest construction loans issued for a Miami Beach residential development so far this year," said Appel. "It speaks to the quality of Monad Terrace that Madison Realty had the confidence to fully finance the construction of the project."

Monad Terrace, located at 1300 Monad Terrace, will offer 59 luxury waterfront condominium residences on Biscayne Bay in South Beach. Construction on the Jean Nouvel-designed project is slated to begin next month, with completion slated for fall 2019.
