Related Group secured a $158.9M construction loan for the 119-condo Casamar Residences in Pompano Beach, the South Florida Business Journal reported. Chicago-based CIBC Bank USA, a subsidiary of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Toronto, provided the mortgage to an affiliate of Miami-based Related called PRH 900 North Ocean LLC.

CIBC Bank USA provided Related Group $158.9M to complete the Casamar Residences in Pompano Beach.

Condo prices started at $1.8M for units ranging from 1K SF to nearly 4K SF. 

Related acquired the site in November 2021 for $30M through a 46-unit buyout of a condo building that was built there in 1978.

Amenities at the oceanfront property will include private elevators, multiple pools, a golf simulator room, a fitness center with saunas and a regulation-size pickleball court. Coastal Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is slated to deliver in 2025.
