The JV said it plans to develop a seven-story, 54-unit luxury mid-rise building above 6,650 SF of retail. The site is already fully entitled as a residential and retail development site.

"We are thrilled to add 9200 Wilshire to our portfolio of luxury assets in prime locations," SHVO Chairman Michael Shvo said in a news release. "Our new residential concept will offer the highest quality of living and amenities, providing extreme value for those seeking something truly extraordinary in Beverly Hills."

Deutsche Finance Managing Partner Jason Lucas said the new luxury development will be one-of-a-kind.

"We are focused on investing in prime sites in key markets with the best teams," Lucas said in the release. "There is enormous demand in Beverly Hills for this type of luxury offering, but extremely limited supply."

The proposed development will feature 54 luxury units in a mid-rise building with a glass exterior. Amenities will include a rooftop pool, a central courtyard and ground-floor retail.

Bayerische Versorgungskammer, one of the largest institutional investors in Germany and among the top 10 pension funds in Europe, is one of the investors in the project. Lotus Capital Partners arranged a $51M acquisition loan from California based Acore Capital, according to the news release.

This is the third joint venture between SHVO, Bilgili Group and Deutsche Finance.

The group recently purchased the historic Raleigh Hotel property in Miami, and in 2018, acquired the office portion of 685 Fifth Ave., which is now being converted into luxury Mandarin Oriental Residences.
