Four Seasons Miami Sold for $130 Million
Developer for the Four Seasons Surf Club in Surfside recently purchased the Four Seasons Miami in Brickell for $130 Million. With this purchase, Fort Partners (developer for Four Seasons) now have full control over all of the Four Season properties in South Florida.
The deal was financed through a New York company Madison Realty Capital for a $105 million loan. The full purchase price is unknown but according to the press release, the property traded for close to $130 million. This selling price equals $588,000 per room.
The hotel located at 1435 Brickell Avenue is a part of a 70-story tower that includes residential units, retail, parking, and a gym. The hotel was completed in 2003 and was considered then the tallest tower in Miami.
According to the Managing Principal and Co-found of Fort Partners, their plans are to renovate the hotel. They also want to 'modernize' the hotel rooms, lobby, and pool deck. They are also looking for additional food and beverage restaurants/bars to join the brand.
The sellers for the hotel include Westbrook Partner, a New York-based company. They purchased the property 10 years ago with a 3 part deal to eliminate debt on another Miami Property. They originally acquired the property for $40 million. Fort Partners was represented by JLL's Jim Dockerty, Kevin Davis, and Mark Fisher.
Last year, the tourism industry stood at a pause as well as a dim future. Now, that states have opened up and are allowing travel, we are seeing more hotel transactions. In June, Pebblebrook Hotel purchased Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort for $270 million. Allen Morris Company, Stormont Hospitality, and Black Salmon teamed up to purchase a Miami Beach hotel for $25.5 million. TPG Real Estate Partners have also purchased 2 hotels in Edgewater for $61 million.
