Ram Realty Advisors broke ground on an apartment/commercial project in Oakland Park after buying the property from Walmart.
Wells Fargo Bank provided a $55.7 million construction loan to RRPV Oakland Park MF and RRPV Oakland Park Comm, both affiliates of Palm Beach Gardens-based Ram Realty Advisors. They developer recently acquired the 12.1-acre site at 670 E. Oakland Park Blvd. from Walmart (NYSE: WMT) for $16.5 million.
Ram Realty Advisors filed notice with the county that it started work on 300 apartments and 5,000 square feet of commercial, including a Sprouts Farmer’s Market (Nasdaq: SFM) store. Kaufman Lynn Construction is the general contractor.
MSA Architects designed the apartment project while Barranco Gonzalez Architecture crafted the commercial portion.
It’s a few blocks west of North Dixie Highway. It's along the North Fork of the Middle River.
Walmart acquired the property 2012 for $5 million after Kmart closed, but it never opened a Walmart there.
