This Week’s South Florida Deal Sheet: West Palm Apartments Trade For $29M

An entity tied to Toronto-based development firm Great Gulf paid $28.5M for the Poinsettia Club Apartments at 5400 N. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach.

A Toronto-based developer paid $28.5M for the Ponsettia Club Apartments, a $4.5M increase from its sale price in late 2021.

The seller was an entity tied to Palm Beach-based Frisbie Group, which paid $24M for the 72-unit complex in December 2021. Prior to that sale, the property last traded in 2005 for $7M.                                            

The three-building Poinsettia Club Apartments complex was built on 2.5 acres in 1966. The sale was confirmed by property intelligence platform Vizzda. 

The aging buildings’ waterfront location in West Palm Beach makes it a likely candidate for redevelopment. Great Gulf, which made the acquisition through an entity called 5400 N Flagler Limited Partnership, didn’t respond to a request for comment about its plan for the site. 


Kayne Anderson and Remedy Medical acquired two medical office buildings at 10275 and 10383 Hagen Ranch Road in Boynton Beach for $20.5M, Vizzda confirmed. The two companies also assumed a 99-year ground lease associated with the properties held by Welltower, an Ohio-based REIT. 

The seller was Miami-based Flagler Healthcare Investments, and the sale was part of an $86M portfolio deal that covered 181K SF of properties in Phoenix, Chicago and Boynton Beach, according to a release from JLL. Flagler paid $15.7M for the Florida properties in 2019, according to property records. 

The entire portfolio is 99% leased, according to JLL, with tenants at the Boynton Beach properties including the Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County and Children’s Pediatric Specialists at Boynton Beach. 

JLL’s medical properties group advisory team, led by Mindy Berman, Matt DiCesare and Liam Sorensen, represented Flagler in the transaction.


Fort Lauderdale-based Affiliated Development paid $12M for a 4.3-acre assemblage at 2703 and 2755 S. Federal Highway in Boynton Beach, Vizzda confirmed. The seller was a trio of entities held by Alan Rutner in Boca Raton, who provided $6M in seller financing, The Real Deal reported

Rutner paid $3.2M for the properties in 2016. The assemblage includes a vacant lot along with a two-story office and retail building that will be demolished to make way for a residential project, Affiliated President Nicholas Rojo told TRD. 

Affiliated has an agreement with the City of Boynton Beach to build 38 townhomes with garages, an eight-story building with 336 apartments, 2,600 SF of retail space and a 401-space parking garage, Rojo told TRD. Roughly half of the apartments will be set aside as workforce housing. 


Informa, the producer of South Florida's biggest boat shows, will move into the recently completed Seagis @ Port Everglades, the South Florida Business Journal reported.

Informa produces the Miami International Boat Show, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and the Palm Beach International Boat Show and will use the building for storage and as its office space. 

Pennsylvania-based Seagis was represented by Tom O’Loughlin and Larry Dinner at CBRE in lease negotiations, while Informa was represented by CBRE's Julie Berry. 

Seagis built the warehouse on a 10-acre site that was previously an Alamo rental car lot, which sits less than a mile from the Port Everglades cruise terminal. The  developer paid $30M for the site in December 2021.

Retail tenants at the property include My Salon, which offers rentable suites for stylists and beauty service providers; Kid Strong, a gym and activity center for kids aged one to 11; Jetset Pilates; Rumble, a boxing-focused fitness concept; and Tropical Smoothie.

Terreno Realty Corp. broke ground on two warehouses as part of the fourth phase of Countyline Corporate Park in Hialeah, according to a release. Both warehouses will have a 36-foot clear height, with one spanning 164K SF and the other spanning 158K SF. 

The warehouses are being built on 17 acres at the intersection of Northwest 170th Street and 107th Avenue. They are slated for completion in 2025. 

The entirety of the park’s fourth phase includes 2.2M SF of industrial space across 10 buildings. It is expected to be fully delivered in 2027. Terreno paid $174M in February 2023 for the 121 acres that comprise the park’s fourth phase, which is being built atop a former landfill.


The developer of a 32-acre mixed-use development in Sunrise is asking the city commission to approve substantial changes to its plans after bringing on Atlas Air, a cargo airline, as a potential anchor tenant, the South Florida Business Journal reported

The development was previously called Westerra, but was recently renamed Radius by GL Commercial. It is located on vacant land on the south side of West Sunrise Boulevard east of Sawgrass Corporate Parkway.

GL Commercial, the commercial arm of Sunrise-based GL Homes, paid $34M for the site in 2019. That year, it secured approval to build 750K SF of office space, 50K SF of commercial space and 750 multifamily units, but it never moved ahead on the project.

The developer is seeking to modify its plan to allow for a 250K SF flight training center and simulator facility for Atlas Air, along with a 300-room hotel that would serve exclusively as corporate housing for the airline, SFBJ reported. 

The project would be built in phases, with the first phase including the flight training center and 175 hotel rooms. The Sunrise City Commission is set to hear the proposal on Feb. 27.
