Booming Atlanta Office Corridor Fuels Demand for Apartment Rentals

JLL closes $36 million sale of Wesley At Winward

ATLANTA, Dec. 15, 2014 – Atlanta’s North Fulton “super-suburb” is experiencing a strong surge right now—with new developments, office properties and steady job growth: all of which bodes well for the multifamily sector. On behalf of MTS Realty Group LLC, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the sale of Wesley At Winward, located in Atlanta’s suburb of Alpharetta, in North Fulton County. Boston Capital purchased the asset for $35.5 million.

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

“Wesley At Windward’s unparalleled location near Avalon’s new $600 million mixed-use development and downtown Alpharetta’s $31 million redevelopment caters exactly to what today’s renters are seeking: an environment where they can live by their work and be conveniently close to retail, shopping and dining,” said Gutting.

Added Bloom, “There is limited competition in this submarket and an incredible opportunity for the new owner to capitalize on a value-add property.”

The 294-unit, garden style apartment is located in the North Fulton submarket, north of Atlanta. Units feature apartment and townhouse floor plans with custom interiors, large balconies and open kitchen space. Community amenities include two resort-style swimming pools, a 24-hour fitness center, tennis courts, two natural on-site lakes, a dog park and a playground.
