MIAMI, June 5, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged the joint venture equity for EDEN at Tradition, a 214-unit build-to-rent development project located in Port St. Lucie, one of the fastest growing MSA’s in the United States. The project is a part of the 8,300-acre master-planned development of Tradition, which includes office, retail, single-family, multi-housing, hospitality and medical uses.

JLL worked on behalf of EDEN Living to secure the joint venture equity.

With an estimated completion of 2025, the project will feature two and three-bedroom townhome units with attached garages and private backyards. Community amenities will include a clubhouse, dog park, playground, a lake, and walking paths.

The property is located within the Tradition master-planned community, 35 minutes from popular beaches, 45 minutes from West Palm Beach and less than two hours from Orlando. Major nearby employers include Cleveland Clinic, HCA Hospital, FedEx, Cheney Brother and Teleperformance.

Tradition offers residents 300 acres of parks, private schools, a Cleveland Clinic, a town center, and a plethora of shopping and dining options.

The JLL Capital Markets team was led by Senior Director Max La Cava, Director Kenny Cutler and Analyst Shane Ciacci.

“The fundamental performance of the build-to-rent sector in Florida, coupled with explosive population growth in Port St. Lucie, make EDEN at Tradition one of the most exciting build-to-rent projects in the Treasure Coast,” said La Cava. “With living costs soaring in South Florida, Port St. Lucie and more specifically, Tradition, have become an exceptional living option for residents seeking the benefits of West Palm Beach living without the elevated costs.”

“We are thrilled to bring EDEN at Tradition to Port St. Lucie, particularly to Tradition, which is one of the top-selling master-planned communities in the country,” said Marc Chasin, Vice President at EDEN Living. “It was an absolute pleasure to work with JLL, who provided us unique visibility into the capital markets and played a key role in helping us structure this transaction.”
