JLL is marketing the $65 million commercial mortgage-backed securities loan that the former owner of Southland Mall in Cutler Bay defaulted on earlier this year.

The mall’s former owner, Investcorp, defaulted on the loan in April and handed the keys over to its CMBS lenders this summer. The mall is currently in foreclosure and a receiver was appointed by a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge.
