HFF announces $23M refinancing of Fifth and Lenox in Miami Beach

MIAMI, FL – March 19, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $23 million refinancing of Fifth and Lenox, a landmark, five-story office building totaling 43,500 square feet in Miami Beach, Florida.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, an affiliated entity related to Goddard Investment Group, to secure the floating-rate loan through Granite Point Mortgage Trust Inc., a publicly-traded mortgage REIT externally managed by an affiliate of Pine River Capital Management LP, that focuses primarily on directly originating, investing in and managing senior floating-rate commercial mortgage loans and other debt and debt-like commercial real estate investments.

WeWork occupies the entire Fifth and Lenox facility on a triple net basis through 2031.  Amenities specific to WeWork space include common lounge areas, soundproof phone booths, conference rooms, printing stations, a micro-roasted coffee bar with baristas and a dog-friendly workspace.  The property is located at 429 Lenox Avenue across from the South Beach Marina and proximate to the MacArthur Causeway providing access into downtown Miami.

The HFF debt placement team consisted of senior managing director Paul Stasaitis and director Maxx Carney.
“This was an excellent execution by a creative capital source for a best-in-class borrower and a marquee asset in one of Miami Beach’s most affluent neighborhoods,” said Carney.
