Nashville Multifamily Deal Commands Primary Market Pricing

JLL closes $93.5 million sale of multifamily property in Nashville’s Bellevue submarket

NASHVILLE, Sept. 2, 2015 – Enticed by the thriving local economy and low cost of business, investors deem Nashville one of the South’s supreme emerging multifamily markets, and the sale of The Lexington is indicative of the trend.
On behalf of a global asset management firm, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of the 598-unit property, located in one of the city’s most opportune submarket, Bellevue. PASSCO Companies purchased the asset for $93.5 million.
Managing Directors Derrick Bloom and David Gutting and Senior Vice President Vince Lefler led the JLL team on the transaction.
“The Bellevue submarket provides residents with a high quality of life, suburban neighbourhood, right next to one of the most vibrant cities in the United States,” said Lefler.  “Located near premier retail, healthcare, and employers, The Lexington has been able to push rent cost per unit due to luxurious upgrades and increasing demand.”
Located just minutes from downtown Nashville, The Lexington offers unit features such as nine-foot ceilings, fireplaces, walk in closets, double stainless steel sinks, and spacious patios and balconies. Community amenities include an indoor pool and three outdoor pools, a fitness center, a clubhouse, lighted tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, two tanning beds, a café and an outdoor grilling area.  The property also offers a java bar, DVD rental media center and clothes care center.
