Jones Lang LaSalle markets The Villages of Louetta for sale I n Houston

Class A multifamily property offers stable asset with value add opportunities


HOUSTON, July 29, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has been chosen to market for sale The Villages of Louetta on behalf of a joint venture between Prudential Real Estate Investors, on behalf of one of its advisory clients, and the project developer.  The Class A, 300-unit multifamily complex is located in the north Houston submarket of Spring.

Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction are Managing Directors Greg Austin and Chip Nash and Vice Presidents Sean Clancy and Wade Schmitz.  Executive Managing Director Tom Fish will provide financing expertise.

“This property should garner a great deal of investors interest as it offers a core, stable, cash-flowing multifamily asset with a number of unique ‘value add’ opportunities,” said Austin.  “This particular submarket is one of the strongest for overall occupancy in this market, and we expect that to continue in the years to come.”

The Villages at Louetta is a gated apartment community built in 2005 and situated on nearly 18 acres.  This residential community is located less than five minutes west of Interstate 45 with excellent visibility from either Kuykendahl or Louetta Roads. The property also benefits from its close proximity to some of Houston’s top employers including Hewlett Packard, LoneStar College, Shell, United Continental Airlines, and ExxonMobil.  The property is currently 94 percent leased.
