Dezer Pays Off $265M Mortgage on Miami Beach Trump Towers

Dezer pays off a $265 million mortgage on two of the Trump Towers in Miami Beach, Fla.; Arbor closes six Fannie Mae deals totaling $23.6 million; and Walker & Dunlop closes a $4.2 million acquisition loan secured by a 50-unit property in Minnesota.

Trump Towers

Sunny Isles Beach, Fla.—An affiliate of Dezer Properties LLC has paid off a $265 million mortgage on Trump Towers II and III. The company assumed the existing loan in March 2010 from a development partnership. The three-tower, 813-unit condominium development is located at 16001 Collin Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla.

When Dezer assumed the loan the two towers had 475 vacant units. There are now just slightly more than 100 units remaining, which are all expected to sell in the range of $650,000 to $2.2 million.

“This is extremely positive news for South Florida’s luxury residential real estate market,” says Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Entities. “When we assumed this obligation in March 2010, the bank gave us a four-year time frame to sell the remaining units based on current absorption rates from the area. We look forward to completing the sales of the remaining units well before that time frame.”

Dezer’s marketing strategy included price adjustments on the new economic realities of the marketplace, with values ranging as low as $350 per square foot to $600 per square foot. The Trump Towers in Sunny Isle Beach were the second branded development between real estate mogul Donald Trump and the father-and-son team of Michael and Gil Dezer.
