TAMPA, FL-Prominent retail developer Eddie DeBartolo appears to be expanding his interests in multifamily properties. Locally based DeBartolo Development LLC announced this week its acquisition of the 379-unit Falcon Square Apartments in Winter Garden, a suburb of Orlando, for $28 million.

DeBartolo bought the asset directly from its developer, Boca Raton-based Falcone Group, for less than half its maturing debt. The complex, which opened just two years ago, has 86% occupancy.
