Forman Capital, a private direct real estate lender based in Palm Beach County, Florida, has invested substantially in Forté Luxe, an upscale boutique residential project developed by Forté Development and designed by Alfonso Jurado Architecture. Located at 12450 Crystal Cove Place on a picturesque peninsula along Jupiter’s Intracoastal Waterway, the development comprises 17 residences featuring interiors by The Decorators Unlimited, including luxurious townhomes ranging from approximately 3,500 to 5,000 square feet. The development boasts a wide range of exceptional amenities, including a resort-style swimming pool and boat slip accommodating vessels up to 60 feet, providing an unmatched lifestyle for waterfront enthusiasts. KAST Construction is the general contractor.

Forman Capital provided a $9.3 million first mortgage to the borrowing entities Forté Properties, LLC and Forté 5, LLC. The transaction closed on July 7, 2023. The development broke ground last month and is slated to be completed in March 2025.

“The property is one of the more unique assets in the state, being a peninsula in the Intracoastal and just north of the highly desirable Jupiter Inlet,” said Scott Mehlman, Forman Capital’s Chief Investment Officer.  “There is a demonstrable shortage of both boat slips and ultra-luxury waterfront residences in the area.  Forté Luxe will offer, privacy and the pinnacle of waterfront living that checks all the boxes.”

  1. In what way is this development representative of the YIMBY movement? I see ultra-luxury townhomes in a car-dependent, exclusive community. Who exactly is this helping, other than the investors? What am I missing?
