Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $40+ Million Sale of Heritage at Old Town in Suburban Washington, D.C.

AREA Property Partners purchased midrise and garden apartment community from Priderock

ALEXANDRIA, VA, Sept. 22, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle today announced the firm’s Mid-Atlantic Multifamily team has closed the sale of Heritage at Old Town in suburban Washington, D.C. on behalf of an affiliate of Florida-based Priderock Capital Partners.  AREA Property Partners purchased the 244-unit midrise and garden apartment community, located in Old Town Alexandria, for $40,850,000 million.

Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction were Managing Directors Al Cissel and Scott Melnick, as well as Senior Vice President Christine Espenshade.

“Heritage at Old Town is well positioned in the market with a stellar location,  rising rents, and continued upside potential due to the strong demand and limited supply for close-in locations in Old Town Alexandria,” said Melnick.  “We continue to see strong interest in the D.C. region as investors from all over the world seek value and growth-oriented assets in this thriving market.”

Built in 1978, Heritage at Old Town has undergone $1.5 million in renovations over the past 18 months.  The six-building garden and one-building midrise complex is inside the Capital Beltway, directly off the US-1 exit and minutes from Ronald Reagan National Airport.
