Aztec Group Organizes $36M Refi for 41-Acre Development in Royal Palm Beach

Aztec Group has closed a $35.5 million loan to refinance the Main Street at Tuttle Royale, a 41-acre mixed-use development in Royal Palm Beach, FL.

Howard Taft and Charles Penan of Aztez Group arranged the loan facility, which replaces a $25.5-million loan previously arranged by Aztec Group.

Aztec Group has represented the borrower, Tuttle Land Development, over the last ten years and has arranged acquisitions financing in multiple phases. Tuttle has bought, entitled and developed more than 10,000 acres of land and more than 5,000 residential lots in Palm Beach, Broward, Martin and Orlando with gross sales exceeding $1 billion.

Tuttle Royale is a 200-acre master-planned community that will consist of 1,100 rental apartments and 500,000 square feet of mixed-use development including medical offices, a charter school and a community park. Tuttle Royale will also feature a 400,000-square-foot lifestyle center with restaurants, 100-key hotel, preschool, bank and grocery store.
