JLL Capital Markets arranged acquisition financing for The Parc at Gatlin Commons

September 15, 2021

MIAMI, Sept. 15, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged a $35.42 million in acquisition financing for The Parc at Gatlin Commons, a brand new, 200-unit, garden-style multi-housing community in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, GMF Capital, to secure the loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

Completed in 2020, The Parc at Gatlin Commons comprises one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 1,005 square feet. Units feature stainless-steel appliances, kitchen islands, vinyl flooring, outdoor balconies and walk-in closets. The community offers residents a full suite of amenities including fitness facilities, a clubhouse, theater room, resort-style swimming pool and pet amenities.

Situated at 1900 Aledo Lane, The Parc at Gatlin Commons is 1.5 miles to an Interstate 95 on-ramp, which provides access to West Palm Beach and the whole of the nation’s east coast. An on-ramp for Florida’s Turnpike, which provides access to Orlando and Interstate 4, is 3.5 miles from the property. Additionally, the community is adjacent to a Sam’s Club-anchored shopping center and 3 miles from the massive 1.2-million-square-foot Tradition mixed-use development, which has office, retail, single-family, multifamily, hospitality and medical uses.

The JLL Capital Markets debt team that represented the developer was led by Senior Managing Director Elliott Throne, Managing Director Brian Gaswirth, Director Jesse Wright and Associate Kenny Cutler. The GMF Capital acquisitions team was led by Jared Frydman and Alejandro Ramirez.

“Freddie Mac provided extremely accretive loan terms with great flexibility for an experienced, repeat borrower,” Gaswirth said.

“GMF has done an exceptional job adding a brand-new, high-quality asset to their rapidly expanding portfolio in Florida,” Wright added.
