A company tied to Bedrock Communities bought two mobile park home parks in Riviera Beach for $8 million.

Tampa-based Bedrock bought a total of 303 mobile home sites at 3030 Broadway Boulevard and 3051 Broadway Boulevard for $26,402 per home site, records show. A company tied to Kansas City-based Mission Peak Capital sold the properties.

Bedrock scored an $8.8 million loan from RCC Real Estate to acquire the properties.

In 2014, Mission Peak bought the 236-home site property at 3051 Broadway Boulevard for $3.1 million. It then bought the 67-home site property at 3030 Broadway Boulevard in 2016 for $915,000, records show.

Bedrock Communities owns a number of mobile homes communities in Florida, but none in South Florida, according to its website. Its other properties in the Sunshine State include Tall Pines, a 257-unit, active adult community in Fort Pierce.

Sam Zell’s Equity LifeStyle Properties and Carlyle Group have been buying mobile home properties in South Florida, where developers are already constrained by land. In December, Equity LifeStyle paid nearly $50 million, or about $53,000 per lot, for a mobile home park near Riviera Beach.

Mike Pence visitará buque hospital en Miami para hablar sobre Venezuela

Pence también dará una conferencia de prensa junto al jefe del Mando Sur, el almirante Craig Faller, reportó El Periodiquito.

En su visita al USNS Comfort, el vicepresidente se «reunirá con personal, revisará los equipos médicos y conversará sobre la próxima misión del buque en Latinoamérica y el Caribe para hacer frente a la crisis humanitaria creada por la inestabilidad política y económica vigente en Venezuela» indicaron desde la Casa Blanca.

Pence ya anunció en mayo el próximo despliegue del USNS Comfort, y ese buque hospital partió este sábado de Norfolk (Virginia) para iniciar su misión por el Caribe, Centroamérica y Sudamérica.

Ese despliegue durará cinco meses e incluirá paradas en Colombia, Costa Rica, la República Dominicana, Ecuador, Granada, Haití, Jamaica, Panamá, Santa Lucía y Saint Kitts y Nevis, según el Mando Sur, que no aclaró el orden de la ruta.

«Esta misión responde directamente a la crisis manufacturada creada por (el presidente venezolano, Nicolás) Maduro», dijo Faller en un comunicado el sábado.

«Los equipos médicos del Comfort trabajarán junto a los profesionales médicos de las naciones que están absorbiendo a miles de migrantes y refugiados venezolanos», agregó.

Este es el segundo despliegue a la región del USNS Comfort en los últimos seis meses y el séptimo desde 2007, según adelantó en mayo la Armada, que indicó que la misión ayudará a «aliviar la presión a los sistemas médicos de los países que acogen a venezolanos».

El USNS Comfort cuenta con más de 1,000 camas, una docena de salas de cirugía, servicios radiológicos digitales, un laboratorio, farmacia y un banco de sangre con 5,000 unidades, así como con un helipuerto para aeronaves de gran tamaño.

Former New York City detective Greg O’Connell bought his first building in Red Hook back in 1967 for $22,000, when the Brooklyn neighborhood was practically a ghost town.

Now, his properties are worth at least $400 million, according to a report by Bloomberg. The 77-year-old former drug cop owns a total of about 1.3 million square feet of buildings and 385,000 square feet of undeveloped land in Brooklyn, mainly in Red Hook.

O’Connell bought his own townhouse there in 1976 for $4,000, and it is now worth more than $1.2 million. He also bought several abandoned warehouses in 1992 from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for $450,000 that are now worth more than $170 million.

The neighborhood is now one of several gentrifying areas of New York City, and it was designated as an Opportunity Zone, which may bring even more development and further boost property values.

But O’Connell, who leads the O’Connell Organization, is not exactly embracing the changes coming to the neighborhood. Several of his tenants are nonprofits that either get the space for free or below-market values, but if taxes and land values keep going up in the neighborhood, he is concerned he will have to raise their rents.

“It’s something I really don’t like,” he said to Bloomberg. “The nonprofits do so much good for the neighborhood.” [Bloomberg] – Eddie Small

Procaccianti Companies sold a Marriott hotel in north Fort Lauderdale to London + Regional Properties, records show.

The Cranston, Rhode Island-based company sold the 315-key hotel at 6650 North Andrews Avenue for about $154,000 per room. An affiliate of London + Regional Properties secured a $24.9 million loan from Wells Fargo to acquire the property.

Procaccianti paid $35 million for the hotel in 2006, according to property records. It was built in 1986 and is near I-95.

London + Regional Properties, a U.K.-based luxury hotel and resort company, recently bought the Palm House Hotel in Palm Beach for $39.6 million. In January, the company paid nearly $49 million for the Pullman Miami Airport hotel at 5800 Blue Lagoon Drive in Miami.

Procaccianti was founded in 1958 and has completed real estate deals worth more than $10 billion, according to its website. In 2017, the company paid $9.2 million for a 11,600-square-foot office building at 231 Royal Palm Way in Palm Beach.

In South Florida, thousands of new hotel rooms are hitting the market, which is driving down occupancy rates. In the first quarter, the hotel occupancy rate in Broward County fell to 83.5 percent, about a percentage point drop from last year, according to hospitality industry monitor STR.

Could Uber “skyports” for LA air taxis be real estate’s next big thing?

Uber intends to start its flying taxi service in Los Angeles, complete with “skyport” stations that would include a retail component. Could those skyports be the next big thing in real estate?

New details about the ride-hailing company’s Uber Air service show prototype concepts for the sleek landing stations, according to Curbed.

Uber wants to build those skyports in cities around the country, starting with L.A. and Dallas in 2023, according to the report.

Uber bills Uber Air as an “affordable shared flight” option for consumers, although it estimates that operating each of its four-seat electric-powered vehicles will cost around $700 per flight hour. It’s unclear who would pilot the vehicle, whose price would would likely put a ride far out of reach for most L.A. residents.

A number of design firms are working on skyport concepts, which Uber wants to be capable of handling 1,000 landings per hour. Architecture giant Gensler revealed its CitySpace concept for L.A. on Tuesday.

The modular CitySpace skyports are designed to be quick to build from the ground up or converted from an existing parking garage to “minimize the effect ton the local community and environment.”

Like those of most competitors, Gensler’s concept resembles small airport terminals with multiple landing pads on their rooftops. [Curbed]Dennis Lynch 

How many Airbnb hosts are spying on their guests?

About 1 in 10 guests say they found cameras hidden in their rentals, survey shows

Trust doesn’t come easy with home sharing.

A recent survey found that about one in 10 Airbnb guests have discovered chidden in their short-term rentals.

Property exchange services firm IPX1031 conducted the survey in April, asking 2,000 people about their experiences as Airbnb guests, Inman reported.

The survey showed that 11 percent of the respondents found such cameras, while 58 percent were concerned “property owners may have hidden cameras within their Airbnb.”

At the same time, nearly 25 percent of the respondents said they would not object to cameras in living rooms, kitchens and other common areas in Airbnb rentals.

Airbnb spokesman Charlie Urbancic questioned the methodology of the survey, telling Inman it failed to “take into account several important factors.”

Urbancic also cited Airbnb rules requiring its hosts to disclose the presence and operation of “any type of security camera or other recording device.” If a host makes such a disclosure after a guest reserves an Airbnb, the guest can cancel the reservation and collect a refund.

Not all the results of the IPX1031 survey were negative for Airbnb, which is reportedly gearing up for an initial public offering this year. More than 80 percent of survey respondents said they trust Airbnb hosts. [Inman.com] — Mike Seemuth
