Palm Beach, Fla. – February 18, 2021 – Trez Capital, a private real estate lender in North America, funded a $70 million first mortgage construction loan for the Block 40 development in downtown Hollywood. Block 40 is under construction on the city’s Young Circle, which is a focal point in Hollywood’s overall revitalization.

The transaction closed on Feb. 17, 2021. Block 40, LLC is the borrower.

Located at 1818 Hollywood Blvd., Block 40 is a 19-story project with 273 rental units and 20,779 square feet of ground-floor retail. The apartments will have Class A finishes, and the project will feature two sets of high-end amenities.
