A fund sponsored by CBRE Investment Management closed on a $73 million mortgage loan to finance the sponsor’s acquisition of a leasehold interest in a newly delivered 442-unit Class A apartment complex in Orlando, Fla. The property, known as West Vue Apartments, is on a 99-year ground lease from Safehold, Inc. The sponsor is a JV partnership between affiliates of Phoenix Realty Group and National Property REIT Corp. 

West Vue, located at 5915 Raleigh Street in Orlando’s Southwest/435 submarket, was completed in 2021 and is currently 95% leased. Units at the property feature stainless steel, energy efficient appliances; center islands with breakfast seating; Wi-Fi connected thermostats; luxury vinyl-plank flooring; walk-in closets with built-in shelving; full size in-unit washer/dryers; and balconies or patios in select units. Community amenities include a 24-hour fitness center and clubhouse; two resort-style pools with private cabanas and a grilling area; a media and game lounge with billiards and a bar, complete with a demonstration kitchen; a rentable private office/study space; a children’s playground; a dog park; private bicycle storage, gated community with key access; and covered parking.

“West Vue achieved strong leasing velocity despite delivering during the COVID-19 pandemic, which we believe speaks to the high-quality nature of the asset,” said Michelle Liu, Managing Director for CBRE Investment Management. “The property is well located within the MetroWest community and is only a short commute to Downtown Orlando and the city’s other employment hubs. This investment is a great addition to our team’s portfolio and we are pleased to have worked with both Newmark and the sponsors on this transaction.”  

Newmark acted as the mortgage broker in the transaction.
