Terrazas River Park Village Apartments sold

The Terrazas River Park Village Apartments, a two-tower rental apartment community at 1861 N.W. South River Drive along the Miami River, was acquired by an affiliate of Ladder Capital Finance Holdings LLLP, a New York-based commercial real-estate finance company.

The 324-unit apartment community, which includes 21-story and 28-story towers, is near Miami’s health district and was 98-percent occupied at sale time, according to CBRE, which marketed the project.

Terms weren’t disclosed, but a person familiar with the transaction said the price exceeded $75 million.

The property, which was completed in 2010, was originally planned as a condominium, but fell into financial distress. A lender took over the project and sold it to a partnership between Atlanta-based Wood Partners, a multi-family investment firm, and AREA Property Partners, a New York-based real-estate investment company and fund manager.

In a statement, CBRE chairman Robert Given said: “Our marketing process generated over 20 offers, with a mix of condominium converters and institutional income buyers. The profiles of the bidders were diverse, with a mix of domestic and foreign capital.”

Michael Comparato, a managing director at Ladder, declined to comment on the deal or his company’s plans for the project.

Until now, Chinese companies that made a splash in global stock markets were state-owned banks and oil companies. But they are big by decree, not because they sell products customers want. By contrast, private sector tech champions such as Lenovo Group in personal computers and search engine Baidu Inc. survived bruising competition to rise to the top of their industries.
