MIAMI, Oct. 6, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $56.5 million in financing for Fountain Square, a Class A office campus totaling 242,690 square feet in Boca Raton, Florida.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between IP Capital Partners, LLC and Edge Principal Advisors, to secure floating-rate acquisition loan through CIBC Bank USA.

Positioned on roughly 15 acres at 2600–2700 N. Military Trail, Fountain Square sits in the heart of Boca Raton’s primary commercial corridor and along one of South Florida’s major north/south roadways. The property is surrounded by two million square feet of retail amenities, including Town Center at Boca Raton, which is a top 25 regional mall and One Boca Place, which is home to 180,000 square feet of retail and 18 restaurants. Additionally, Fountain Place is part of the Boca Raton West office submarket, which has experienced strong rent growth of 50 percent between 2011 and first quarter of 2021.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Chris Drew and Director Maxx Carney and supported by Associates Reid Carleton and Jimmy Calvo.

“We are pleased to have advised IP Capital Partners and Edge Principal Advisors in the capitalization of Fountain Square,” Drew said. “The debt markets robust response to this opportunity demonstrated the lending community’s confidence in the new owner’s stature as one of the best office operators in the southeastern United States as well as the lender’s conviction in the strength and resilience of the Florida office market.”
