NASHVILLE, TN

Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $58.75m Sale of Eleven North Luxury Apartment Community


NASHVILLE, TN, November 28, 2012 — On behalf of Tribridge/Stonehenge Investment and The Carlyle Group, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of Eleven North, a rare Class AA, institutionally owned apartment complex for $58.75 million in Nashville.  The luxury apartment community is located in The Gulch, one of Nashville’s fastest growing “Live, Work, Play” communities.  Mesirow Financial purchased the four-story, 302-unit luxury asset for roughly $195,000 per unit.
Senior Vice President Vince Lefler with Managing Directors Derrick Bloom and David Gutting led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction.

“Eleven North’s high-profile, infill location offered investors the rare opportunity to acquire a new, modern luxury property in a high-demand area.  This was a once-in-a-decade opportunity as only one such property has sold over the past 10 years,” said Bloom.  “In addition, Nashville’s strong economic growth and vibrant entertainment districts added to the strong investor interest for this tremendous asset.”

Added Gutting, “Eleven North has seen a 10 percent rent growth since first signing leases in mid February – equating to greater than 30 percent annual rent growth – and a record lease-up schedule, averaging more than 50 leases per month during the first six months of leasing alone.  It is truly one of the area’s most in-demand residential addresses.”

Eleven North boasts a best-in-class amenity package, including a saltwater resort-style pool with adjoining spa; outdoor grilling area with fire pit with cabana tents; state-of-the-art fitness center; rooftop lounge with viewing terrace and billiards; lounge with flat screen TVs and karaoke system; Chef’s kitchen; cyber café; tanning bed; bike racks; electric car charging stations; and pet park.  Individual apartments feature granite countertops, satin nickel finishes, black EnergyStar kitchen appliances, full-size washer and dryer, pre-wiring for surround sound, ceramic tile, faux hardwood flooring and garden-sized tub.  It is located between Church and Charlotte streets, directly across from Northwestern Mutual’s new 35-acre Lifestyle Center to include such retail as Target, Ikea and Publix. PNC bank was the construction lender on the development.

The Gulch is located in the heart of approximately 100,000 jobs, largely dominated by the medical and entertainment industry and Vanderbilt University.  It is a leading-edge neighborhood defined as the first LEED certified community in the Southeast.  It is also a premier designation for entertainment with its trendy restaurants, music venues and rich culture of country music.
