Last year, CVS inked a long-term lease for 25.5 years at the site, the release states. Pebb Capital, co-founded by managing principals Todd and Jeff Rosenberg, and Miami Lakes-based LeaseFlorida completed the parking garage and retail condo in 2019, the same year the joint venture finished renovating The Continental, a historic 100-key hotel completed in 1948.

CVS-anchored retail buildings in Miami Beach sell for premium prices. In 2019, Philadelphia-based commercial real estate firm KNLB paid $18.3 million for a 12,415-square-foot retail building leased to CVS at 983 Washington Avenue, records show. And in 2015, Boston-based Rockpoint Group paid $30 million for a two-story, CVS-anchored building at 306 and 312 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.

Established in 2014, Boca Raton-and-New-York-based Pebb Capital is currently redeveloping the Bancroft Hotel and the adjacent Ocean Steps commercial building in South Beach into a Class A office project that will offer a membership-style concept. The reimagined Art Deco property will offer private office space, four restaurants and a subterranean parking garage.

Pebb Capital is partnering with Miami-based Maxwelle Real Estate Group and Miami Beach developer Russell Galbut on the project. Pebb and Maxwelle paid $47 million for the Bancroft and Ocean Steps in September.
