Purchase Enhances Company’s Florida Residential Portfolio
FCA Group (now incorporated in Elandis) announced today its acquisition of 222 residential condos representing the majority of the 291-unit Jasmine at Tamarac community in Tamarac, Florida. Originally built in 1987 as a multifamily rental community, Jasmine at Tamarac underwent a condominium conversion and renovation programme in 2006. With spectacular views of the surrounding Colony West Country Club golf course and a tranquil waterway, the community comprises a mix of oneand two-bedroom units, a common area lounge, a theater room, an exercise room and two pool facilities. The property is a 20-minute drive from both Fort Lauderdale and Nova Southeastern University in Davie.
"With this transaction, we have applied our expertise to bring about a deal with full financing in a very short space of time and on favorable terms for all parties involved," said Frank Espinosa, CEO of FCA Group. “Jasmine provides the opportunity to continue building our Florida portfolio, which is rapidly approaching 1,000 units. The historically high occupancy rate at Jasmine along with its enviable location makes this a very strong addition to the FCA portfolio in North America."
Jasmine brings FCA’s portfolio in the Miami region alone to 400 owned and operated condos, having acquired approximately 200 units in 2010 at two similar, nearby properties, Crescent Cove in Coral Springs and Heron Pond in Pembroke Pines. FCA has also been active in the Tampa market, purchasing over 300 units at Oaks at Granada earlier in 2012 and Grand Pavilion in 2011.
