PORT ST. LUCIE, FLA. — Berkadia has arranged a $37.5 million forward acquisition loan for Tavalo Tradition, a 216-unit build-to-rent development underway in Port St. Lucie. An investment vehicle managed by GTIS Partners purchased the townhome-style community from K. Hovnanian. Scott Wadler and Matt Nihan of Berkadia arranged the financing through an unnamed national bank on behalf of GTIS Partners, which will obtain the capital in draws.
Tavalo Tradition will be situated within the 2,500-acre Tradition master-planned community. Units will come in two- and three-bedroom townhomes and average 1,387 to 1,494 square feet in size. Amenities will include pickleball courts, a fitness center, swimming pool, dog park, over 500 acres of lakes and 300 acres of parks. The project is slated to complete in mid-2024.
