Bridge Point Riverbend is a joint venture project between Bridge Development Partners, recently recognized as NAIOP’s Developer of the Year in South Florida; Akard Street Partners, L.P., an investment partnership operated by Banner Oak Capital Partners, L.P.; and Elion Partners, a Miami-based real estate investment group. The joint venture acquired the 12-acre site in July for $10.4M and secured $16.56 million in financing to develop the project.

Located at 2201 West Broward Boulevard, Bridge Point Riverbend is a speculative industrial development project that will feature 32’ clear ceiling heights, rear-dock loading, ESFR sprinkler systems, a 1.4/1,000 parking ratio and the flexibility to accommodate tenants from 40,000 square feet. The strategically located facility offers easy access to South Florida’s major transportation arteries with immediate proximity to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades, and just a short 30-minute drive to Miami.
