IRVINE, Dec. 14, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed a $245 million portfolio financing for an iconic Napa Valley hotel property; three, Class A coastal Orange County retail centers; one, Class A multi-housing community located in San Diego’s Little Italy submarket; and a single-tenant showroom and restaurant space in downtown Yountville.

JLL marketed the portfolio on behalf of the borrower and secured permanent financing from four lenders. Boardwalk Investments Group is led by Owner Gary Jabara and Senior Vice President Debi Kroger.

“Boardwalk was able to rate lock attractive, fixed-rate financing earlier this year, and we were pleased with the competitiveness of the real estate debt markets and smooth execution by our lending partners despite the volatile rate environment.  After a record period of acquisitions in 2021 and 2022, we will continue to look at additional core investment opportunities in the next 24 months,” said Kroger.

The properties include:

  • The Estate, a 22-acre hospitality and destination retail complex in downtown Yountville, CA with 193 luxury guestrooms across Hotel Villagio, Vintage House, and the five-bedroom Villa at The Estate
  • Aliso Creek Shopping Center, a 49,149-square-foot, 92-percent-leased, trophy retail center located within Laguna Beach and anchored by CVS
  • Flower Hill Promenade, a 168,249-square-foot, 95.6-percent-leased, neighborhood retail center that is anchored by Whole Foods and located in Del Mar
  • The Landing, a 44,289-square-foot, 100-percent-leased, Pavilions-anchored shopping center located on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach
  • 1810 State Street, a 99-unit, Class A, highly amenitized, mid-rise apartment complex in Downtown San Diego’s premier neighborhood of Little Italy
  • Restoration Hardware Yountville, a single-tenant, Class A showroom, wine vault and restaurant space in downtown Yountville

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Managing Director John Chun, Senior Director John Marshall and Analysts Jordan Leake and Spencer Seibring.

“The deep lender pool in dislocated market conditions highlighted the irreplaceability of Boardwalk’s portfolio, and Boardwalk’s exceptional vertically integrated asset management platform. We’re excited to see Boardwalk continue to deepen its presence in California’s most coveted submarkets,” said JLL.
