Land Grab: Prime Broward Tract Sells

FT LAUDERDALE—Land is selling in South Florida as the construction boom continues—and it’s not all in Downtown Miami or Biscayne Boulevard. The 17.34-acre Riverbend commercial land tract in Fort Lauderdale, FL has traded for $5.9 million.

Drew A. Kristol and Kirk D. Olson, vice presidents of investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Miami office, had the exclusive listing to market the property for the seller, a limited liability company from Sunrise, FL. The duo also represented the buyer, a limited liability company from Fort Lauderdale.

“This was a rare opportunity to own a core commercial development opportunity in the heart of Fort Lauderdale on Broward Boulevard, just west of the Interstate 95 on ramp,” says Kristol. “The previous owner invested in all utilities and site improvements for development based on the current approved site plan. The buyer plans to re-position the asset over time after working with the city and county to create an appropriate and redevelopment strategy.”

Zoned B-1 commercial, the site is approved for up to 180,000 square feet of office space and 71,000 square feet of retail. The property is located minutes north of the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International airport and east of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. The address is 2201-2307 West Broward Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

USAA Real Estate completed the $204 million sale of the Las Olas Centre in Fort Lauderdale, The Real Deal has learned.

The real estate arm of San Antonio insurance firm paid $170 million for the nearly 470,000-square-foot office complex at 350 and 450 East Las Olas Boulevard in September 2010, according to Broward County records. USAA sold the complex to RAR2 – Las Olas Centre. Broward County recorded the transaction Monday.

RAR2 is managed by RREEF America, the real estate investment business of Deutsche Bank’s Asset Management division. The company assumed an existing loan from Wells Fargo Bank with a current balance of $57.2 million as part of the transaction.

The latest sale price falls short of the $231 million Los Angeles-based BentleyForbes paid for Las Olas Centre in 2007. That transaction set sale price and price per square foot records for the Fort Lauderdale office market. BentleyForbes eventually turned the property over to Wells Fargo to avoid losing it through foreclosure.

Current tenants at Las Olas Centre include Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo Bank.

Broward home, condo prices rise again

Sales velocity expected to slow down throughout year, however

March 20, 2014 10:30AM

Single-family home and condo prices in Broward County substantially increased last month.

The latest figures from Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors shows the year-over-year median price of a single-family residence in Broward rose 12.3 percent to $255,000 in February, the Miami Herald reported. Condo and townhouse prices jumped 38.1 percent to $121,500 during the same span.

Broward had 979 single-family sales, a year-over-year increase of 1 percent, in February. Condo sales dropped 5.9 percent to 1,172, however.

Even as inventory levels rise, sales velocity is expected to slow down this year. Steadily rising home and condo prices and elevated interest rates are hindering the affordability of Broward residences. [Miami Herald]Eric Kalis
