A company tied to Miami investor Orlando Padron has acquired a 3.8-acre hotel property near Miami International Airport and David Beckham’s planned soccer and retail complex.

OPB Capital Group Fund 1 LLC paid $25.8 million for the Regency Miami Hotel at 1000 Northwest 42nd Avenue. The seller was 10 Le Jeune Inc., led by Jose Vazquez.

Banesco USA provided the buyer with a $21 million loan.

The 176-room hotel sold for nearly $147,000 per key. It last sold for $10 million in 2003.

Raymond Fernandez of Florida Capital Realty brokered the off-market deal. Fernandez said the property is one of the largest parcels left in the area. Roughly 350 units could be built on the land surrounding the hotel, he said.

Fernandez said the hotel, which was built in the 1980s, will remain open.

Just south of the property, also on Le Jeune Road, Sergio Pino’s Century Homebuilders Group and Pactia USA are building 850 Le Jeune, a mixed-use project with about 230 apartments, and 200,000 square feet of office space on a 4-acre site.

It’s also near the Melreese Country Club, where David Beckham and Jorge Mas’ development group is planning to build Miami Freedom Park. That project would be anchored by a 25,000-square-foot soccer stadium for the group’s Major League Soccer team, as well as more than 1 million square feet of retail and office space and about 750 hotel rooms.
