MIAMI, FLA. – AUG. 3, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it arranged a $9.26 million refinancing for The Forum, a 73-unit mid-rise apartment community located at 1361 Federal Highway in Boca Raton, Florida.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Rosemurgy Properties, to secure the 120-month, fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by Jones Lang LaSalle Multifamily, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

The Forum features a pool and tropical courtyard, balconies, spacious floor plans, walk-in closets and more. The property is currently undergoing $1.3 million in renovations, including interior unit remodeling, concrete restoration, new exterior painting and repaving of the parking lot and walkways. To date, Rosemurgy Properties has contributed $2 million in upgrades, including HVAC systems, windows, roofing and elevators.

“We are proud to continue providing outstanding apartment homes to the heart of Boca Raton,” said Nic Desiato, CFO of Rosemurgy Properties. “In addition to the $2 million that Rosemurgy Properties has contributed in upgrades, this financing will further support improvements at The Forum apartments for current and future residents to enjoy, including interior unit remodeling and amenity upgrades.”

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Elliott Throne and Directors Amit Kakar and Jesse Wright.
