Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of Alexander on Ponce

Atlanta’s multifamily market attracts institutional buyers and leads country in occupancy gains

ATLANTA, Feb.17, 2014 —Atlanta’s housing recovery gains steam as Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Capital Markets experts announced the sale of Alexander on Ponce, located at 144 Ponce De Leon Ave NE. CBRE Global Investors purchased the 330-unit midrise apartment complex from Equity Residential for an undisclosed price.

Managing Directors Derrick Bloom and David Gutting led the JLL team on this transaction.

“Alexander on Ponce is located in the thriving Midtown submarket of Atlanta which not only has walkability to major employers but also a variety of retailers, dining options and entertainment venues,” says Bloom. “This offers its residents a highly desirable ‘live, work, play’ environment.”

Gutting added, “The Property is a strong-performing asset: its rent increased six percent year-to-date in 2013 and has consistently delivered an occupancy rate of 95 percent.”

Alexander on Ponce boasts an infill location while remaining walkable to many of the area’s attractions including Piedmont Park, the country’s second largest city park. Its amenity package offers tenants panoramic city views, two garden courtyard and garden areas, a fully-equipped fitness center and a large business center.
