Related Group was bought out by Dezer Properties selling at new, discounted prices.. I decided to take the forbidden tour of the Trump Towers Sunny Isles Beach in January after years of stressful phone calls from speculators trying to sell & get out. To top it off, the news came from every direction of the Dezer family buying out Related’s stake in the entire project assuming the remaining debt after paying off Tower I. After seeing the finishes both condo interior and throughout, noting the well appointed amenities & hearing what had occurred with financial backing by the lender for the next 4 years, I’m now promoting it with all the other Sunny Isles Beach ”greats“ to clients & customers looking for the very best values on new oceanfront construction. Here are the interesting facts on the buyout..
Following months of negotiations with lenders, Dezer Properties assumed the former partnership’s $265 million loan on Dec. 31, 2009 with the bank then renegotiating the construction loan with Dezer Properties directly after seeing successful performance from Tower I sales allowing Dezer to then lower the prices by 30% and now causing a success of new sales in Trump Tower II. Tower II was relaunched to the public as the premier tower of the three offering an onsite restaurant with an oceanfront setting and great food along with 2 swimming pools to choose from depending on which side of the bed you wake up on.
The Dezer’s are the real estate moguls & godfather of Sunny Isles Beach condo development. The Dezer family owned business holds 45 acres of oceanfront land in Sunny Isles Beach, with sites for eight more buildings. Gil and father Michael Dezer have also developed and almost sold out Trump Grande in Sunny Isles Beach, a three building premium oceanfront enclave that includes the Trump International Beach Resort built in 2003, the Trump Palace (2006) and the latest Trump Royale (2008) which is now 60+ percent sold out. In addition to their South Florida properties, the Dezers’ holdings include 27 buildings in New York.
“Prices now range from $350 per square foot for most units to $600 a square foot for penthouses. Each of the three 45 story towers has 271 units. Tower I has 260 units sold, and Tower II is about 40 percent sold with 105 sold, Dezer said. During the next two to three months, Dezer will send out closing notices to those who put down deposits on Tower III, and give them the option to move over at a reduced price to Tower II. Tower III was sold out at an average price of $720 per square foot, with some sales at more than $1,000 a square foot!“ - MiamiHerald
