Private real estate lender Trez Capital has provided a $48 million construction loan for Alloro at University Groves, a 55-plus rental community in Sarasota.

The community will be located on nearly seven acres at 3415 Broadway Ave. in Sarasota. Construction is underway and the project is expected to be delivered in approximately two years. The Alloro will feature three four-story buildings with 183 apartments offered at market rates and a 14,000-square-foot clubhouse that will be the focal point of active living. Community amenities will include Bocce Ball and Pickleball courts, resort-style pool and sauna, movie theater, game room, hair and nail salon and a gym.
