Downtown midrise gets foreclosed
Sep 23, 2012 (Menafn - Orlando Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Sentinel Capital Partners LLC last week foreclosed on the owners of the Centennial Bank Building at 250 N. Orange Ave. in downtown Orlando.
The building's mortgage is 15.3 million and the structure is owned by a limited liability corporation that includes Galip and Ali Mamudoski of Bronx, N.Y. Records show they purchased it in 2006 for 1.5 million. The tower's two former anchor tenants, Centennial Bank and now-defunct Old Southern Bank, are also named in the foreclosure.
Located a block south of the Orange County Courthouse, the office tower has been cited repeatedly for electrical-code violations by the city. But while it is not in the best condition, it should attract a lot of interest from buyers, said Justin West, an office specialist in the Orlando office of the commercial real estate firm Marcus & Millichap.
"Investment sales in the Orlando market are on the increase, and a building of that scope and nature in the downtown CBD [central business district] would certainly generate multiple offers," he said.
Orlando-based Sentinel Capital, which has also purchased 110 million in distressed notes from Reunion Resort and Golf Club, is a consulting firm that serves lenders, developers and other clients. Directors include Steven Parmee and Richard A. Burt, both of Orlando.
