TAMPA, FLA. — Berkadia has arranged $92 million in debt and preferred equity financing for the construction of Tampa Heights Apartments, a new 321-unit, mixed-income multifamily project in the Tampa Heights neighborhood. U.S. Bank provided the senior debt, and Marble Capital provided the preferred equity. The borrowers, Tampa-based Loci Capital and Pennsylvania-based Maifly Development, plan to begin construction in February and complete the project in late 2024. Michael Weinberg, Rebecca Van Reken and Alec Fox of Berkadia arranged the financing. Humphreys & Partners Architects is serving as the architect for the project.
As part of its negotiations with the City of Tampa, Tampa Heights Apartments will include 32 income-qualifying units for residents earning no more than 80 percent of the area’s median income (AMI). Located on a 2.5-acre site at the northeast corner of North Florida and East 7th avenues, Tampa Heights Apartments will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units that range from 512 square feet to 1,393 square feet in size. Community amenities will include multiple outdoor lounging and park areas, a resort-style rooftop pool with cabanas, firepits and grilling stations, fitness center, coffee bar, meeting rooms, bike storage, dog park and secure package storage.
