UPDATED, Nov. 14, 1:45 p.m.: A company tied to Art Falcone’s Encore Capital Management just scored a $75 million construction loan for a multifamily project in Fort Lauderdale, property records show.

California-based Pacific Western Bank provided $57 million in financing and New York-based Square Mile Capital provided $18 in financing for the 348-unit, 30-story apartment development at 405 Northeast Second Street.

The Rise Flagler Village will sit on a 1.3-acre site on the north side of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Records show the Boca Raton-based developer bought the property in 2015 for $9.4 million. Construction is set to begin in January, according to the release.
