The Dorsey Mixed-Use Project Gets $165M Refi

Berkadia has arranged a $165 million loan to refinance the construction loan for The Dorsey, a recently completed, mixed-use development located in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood.

The 306-unit property was co-developed by Related Group, LNDMRK, and Tricera Capital. Berkadia Managing Directors Scott Wadler, Brad Williamson, and Matt Robbins, Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, and Vice President Michael Basinski of Berkadia South Florida arranged the loan on behalf of the Miami-based sponsors.

The lender, MF1 Capital, delivered a quick and certain closing despite recent market volatility and provided the 30-month, interest-only loan to take out the existing construction financing.

“Despite the macro headwinds, lender confidence remains high for those projects of the highest quality,” said Jon Paul Perez, President of Related Group. “In the case of The Dorsey, we had several factors working in our favor: namely an unmatched location in the world’s most desirable neighborhood, gorgeous designs and a development team that’s second to none.”

Located on the corner of NW 29 Street and NW 3rd Avenue, The Dorsey is at the epicenter of the Wynwood neighborhood. The property features 73,000 square feet of office space, and 36,000 square feet of ground floor retail. The office portion is fully leased to Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, a New York-based hedge fund making The Dorsey their second headquarters, and Industrious, a leading coworking provider with over 160 locations globally.

The Dorsey also includes 306 luxury apartments, with floor plans ranging from 450 to 1,600 square feet. Residents will enjoy a highly curated set of on-site amenities, like a fitness center with a spin and yoga room, a first-class pet spa, a resort-style rooftop pool, an outdoor courtyard, and more. The development also boasts a collection of world-class art displayed across all common areas.

“The Dorsey is the premier mixed-use development in one of the most desirable 24-hour submarkets in the nation,” said Wadler. “The Property’s strong lease-up velocity and best-in-class features and finishes led to significant lender interest in the refinance.”

The Dorsey’s modern mixed-use design blends with Wynwood’s walkable, urban neighborhood. The project’s impactful integration into the neighborhood has already brought accolades as it was named the Multifamily Development of the Year for South Florida at the 2023 CoStar Impact Awards.

Industrious To Open 40,000-Square Foot Coworking Space In South Beach

Industrious, a coworking space provider based in New York, is coming to South Beach with a new 40,000-square-foot location.

Peri Demestihas, Industrious’ senior director of real estate, said his company aims to open its fifth South Florida location at 350 Lincoln Road this summer. It will occupy the space previously filled by WeWork from November 2014 until August 2018, when the company was forced to scale back its operations.

“We are really excited about it. South Florida is the hottest market in the country for us,” Demestihas said.

Nancy Cibrano, asset manager for The Wings Group, the New York-based landlord of the Lincoln Building, stated that Industrious beat out other coworking office companies who sought WeWork’s old space. The real estate agency paid $14 million for the five-story Lincoln Building in April 2008. The property was built in 1946.

“After a very long vetting process, Industrious was a clear choice with its proven success record in being the highest-rated flexible workspace provider,” Cibrano said in a press release.

The South Florida office market in general has been thriving thanks to the migration of out-of-state companies into the region as well as local expanding companies. Brokers credit the state’s low regulations, good weather, and lack of income tax for the office market upswing.
