The previous owner of this Commercial Real Estate was 2901 Beach Ventures, which consisted of two equal partners, Lionstone Group and Fortune International Management. A partner with Arnstein & Lehr, lead the negotiations for the Sellers Group regarding the underlying loan with FirstBank Puerto Rico that resulted in the sale of the Seville Hotel to Marriott and hotelier Ian Schrager. The purchase price for the Hotel was for $57.5 million. We believe this was a Short Sale with almost $10 million being dismissed from the first mortgage value.
The famous hotelier, Ian Schrager, helped restart South Beach with his launch of the Delano hotel 15 years ago. Ian Schrager left Miami Beach a few years ago with the sale of his interest in the Morgans Hotel Group.
It is rare to find any net lease properties in Miami Beach. We do see a Retail Property, Free Standing Building as a Net Lease Investment with 10+ years left on the lease, in Miami. The Net Lease Property is marketed as a 8.50% Cap Rate.
