Tertiary Multifamily Markets in Dallas are just as Desirable as In-Town Locations

JLL negotiates the sale of The Place in Mesquite, Texas 

DALLAS, December 3, 2015 – On behalf of Shore to Shore Properties, JLL Capital Markets experts today announced the sale of The Place, a 442-unit multifamily community, located at 3701 Towne Crossing Boulevard in Mesquite, Texas.  

Managing Director Jeff Price, Senior Vice President Bill Simmons and Vice President David Fersing led the JLL team on the transaction.   

The Place is a Class B garden style multifamily community, ten miles east of the Dallas Central Business District.  It provides residents lifestyle conveniences such as restaurant row, the Kroger anchored Towne Crossing Shopping Center and Town East Mall. 

The property was built in 1985 and is currently 96 percent occupied.  Community amenities include two side-by-side pools, community garden with outdoor grills and picnic tables, three laundry rooms and access to a large greenbelt with pet stations.

“In terms of overall rent growth, Mesquite is one of DFW’s strongest submarkets and value-add assets like The Place are particularly attractive to investors right now,” said Price.

According to MPF research, annual rent growth for vintage assets in the submarket reported a seven percent, as of year-to-date 2015.
