A joint venture between Fuse Group and Boca Paila, a subsidiary of Grupo Krea, has obtained $84.4 million in construction financing for the development of The Arcadian, a 478-unit community in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Centennial Bank provided the loan.

The estimated total cost of the project is $153.4 million. Other funds for the two eight-story buildings include a $10 million incentive from the Fort Lauderdale City Commission, acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency Board of Commissioners.

The community recently broke ground and is expected to come online in less than two years. The development was also supported by the Northwest-Progresso-Flagler Heights Community Redevelopment Area.
