TAMPA, FL-Locally based Garrison Developer Group has secured a $48-million loan to proceed with The Preserve at Alafia, a 351-unit riverfront luxury apartment complex on the city’s east side. The FHA-backed financing was arranged through the Birmingham, AL office of Prudential Huntoon Paige Associates Ltd.

The apartments represent the first of three phases of Alafia Crossing, a $100-million mixed-use project along the Alafia River near Interstate 75 that will also include hotel, office and retail segments. Apartments will begin leasing later this year and the balance of the complex should open next summer.

“Extensive market research demonstrates that The Preserve at Alafia will fill a strong need in the Tampa area for upscale rentals located in an extraordinary waterfront setting that has previously unavailable to renters,” says Rey Ortega, president of Garrison. Asking rents for the apartments will average $1,000 monthly, he says.
