HFF Announces $110.3M Financing of J.P. Morgan and Magellan Development Group’s Midtown Miami Mixed-use Tower


Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $110.3 million in financing for the development of Midtown 6, a 31-story, mixed-use residential and retail tower in Midtown Miami.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management and Magellan Development Group, to secure the construction loan through PNC Bank and BMO Harris Bank. This transaction follows construction financing that the HFF team arranged on the borrower’s behalf in 2014 for the development of the adjacent Midtown 5 tower.

Midtown 6 will be situated at 3101 NE 1st Avenue in the heart of the highly sought-after Midtown area, which is bounded by the thriving Wynwood, Edgewater and Design District neighborhoods. Designed by bKL Architecture, the LEED Silver project is slated for completion in spring 2020. In addition to the more than 397,000 square feet of residential space, Midtown 6 will also include 40,000 square feet of ground floor retail. Residential units will offer a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans averaging 890 square feet. Midtown 6 will feature an extensive amenity list, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, sport court, spa with sauna and steam room, resort-style elevated pool deck with cabanas and grilling area, pool bar, 30th floor sky lounge, dedicated event room, game room, lounge area and gated structured parking.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower included managing directors Danny Kaufman and Elliott Throne and senior director Scott Wadler along with executive managing director Mike Tepedino and senior director Jennifer Keller.

“The combination of a first-class development team and prime location in Miami's most walkable neighborhood paved the way for a successful financing,” Wadler said. “We are excited to watch Midtown 6 continue to build out Midtown Miami, as the adjacent Midtown 5 project has done.”
