With 26 new condominium projects planned in South Florida, financing is beginning to emerge for their construction, according to the Miami Herald. Since October 2011, banks have provided $775 million in financing for a total of 17 projects in Miami-Dade County, like the Bellini Williams Island. Some of the lenders include Mercantil Commercebank in Coral Gables and New York-based Ladder Capital Finance. It’s a trend Coastal Construction CEO Tom Murphy, Jr. mentioned to The Real Deal in an interview last week. [Miami Herald]
