The developer of a 44-unit rental townhouse project in Palm Beach County got a $6.5 million loan to finance construction.

The developer is Capo 7 LLC, led by Joseph Basile III of Lantana-based JFB Construction and Development Inc., which also is the project’s general contractor. An affiliate of JFB will manage the property.

Capo 7 is developing The Preserve at Hypoluxo on a site that borders a 97-acre nature preserve in Hypoluxo, a town just north of Boynton Beach.

Each townhouse at the development will have a three-bedroom floor plan and an attached garage.

Expected to open in the winter of 2018, The Preserve at Hypoluxo also will have a two-story, 17,000-square-foot building with five apartments and nine ground-floor retail bays.

Boca Raton-based Rare CRE, led by Nelson Garcia, arranged the $6.5 million construction loan on behalf of Capo 7.

“Securing construction financing is relatively challenging in the current market,” Garcia said in a prepared statement. But Capo 7 qualified for financing due to its extensive experience in development and construction and the project’s “excellent location next to a large nature preserve, minutes from the beach.” Mike Seemuth
