Hawiian Palms

Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.—Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services has closed on the sale of Hawaiian Palms, a 245-unit community located in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. Craig Porter, senior associate, and Darryl Matus, a multifamily property specialist, represented the seller, a Plantation, Fla.-based LLC. Porter also represented the buyer, a South American private investor. $14.1 million sales price represents $57,551 per unit.

“Hawaiian Palms represents one of the very highest price-per-doors, price-per square foot, and overall sales price amounts in the history of Lauderdale Lakes,” says Porter. “This was a great opportunity for an investor to acquire a turn-key apartment community in a historically high-occupancy location. The sale suggests a clear recognition that the marketplace sees value and upside in the South Florida commercial multifamily market.”

Hawaiian Palms is situated on 12 acres at 3540 NW 50th Ave., one block north of Oakland Park Boulevard, in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. The property was constructed between 1986 and 1987.
