Paramount Bay Granted Fannie Mae Approval

Paramount Bay condos

Sales haven’t quite yet begun at Paramount Bay but the development was granted Fannie Mae approval last week.  The conditional approval expires on September 25, 2011 which leads me to believe that we should expect sales to launch very soon.  Paramount Bay, located in the Arts District of Miami at 2066 North Bayshore Drive, was developed by Royal Palm Communities and completed in 2009.  The construction loan was originally held by Corus Bank which was later seized by the FDIC on September 11, 2009.  Starwood Capital Group then acquired Corus’ real estate assets on October 2, 2009 by beating seven groups with a winning bid of $554 million.  Paramount Bay was one of three condo developments residing in Miami that were part of the real estate portfolio acquired in that auction.  Personally, I’m very excited about Paramount Bay and can’t wait to tour it again.  I toured Paramount Bay in 2009 but the building wasn’t quite ready and I hear that Starwood has invested lots of additional money into the building over the past three months to really blow everyone away.  No word yet on what pricing will be like but I’m expecting it to be close to that of 900 Biscayne Bay.

Wouldn’t most buyers prefer 900 Biscayne to Paramount if they’re both priced the same?

Foreclosure of Paramount will be interesting. As with some other condo buildings, a well heeled buyer could purchase at a deal and not be forced into a fire sale near term. While I prefer Brickell or the museum park areas, a brand new luxury building with direct waterfront access would be very intriguing.

Lucas,
Isnt Paramount part of the loan portfolio Starwood acquired from the FDIC? How does this foreclose action affect them and all the upgrades they’ve done in the recent months to the property?
