ACRES issues $16 million loan for Nona Cove


ORLANDO, Florida., February 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ACRES Capital Corp. (together with its subsidiaries, “ACRES”), a leading mid-market commercial real estate lender, has launched a $16 million loan to finance the development of Nona Cove Self Storage (the “Property”) in Orlando, Florida.

The building includes 98,448 net leasable square feet to be developed into an Extra Space self-storage building containing 1,046 temperature-controlled self-storage units and 7,593 net leasable square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The Extra Space self-storage development will be part of a mixed-use multi-family and retail development called [email protected] Anse Nona.

This project is well located near Orlando International Airport and Lake Nona Medical City – a 650-acre life sciences park designed with a long-term vision of creating a centralized and sophisticated medical treatment, research and education center in Central Florida.

The Lake Nona area is experiencing a development boom alongside an expected significant increase in population. Expansion plans include millions of square feet of retail space, thousands of hotel rooms and more than 100 retail stores and restaurants.

“The Lake Nona area is considered an exceptional market to develop because self-storage does not currently exist within a three-mile radius of the area,” said the CEO and President of ACRES.

The loan was granted to FUTURA, a private real estate investor and development company dedicated to acquiring and creating unique, design-driven and financially viable mixed-use lifestyle centers. The loan was arranged by Steve Liebert of CCM Commercial Mortgage and initiated by James Bracco of ACRES’ miami Office.
