Multifamily Value-Add Opportunity Drives Investors to Seattle Suburbs

JLL closes $68.5 million sale of Arcadia Townhomes


SEATTLE, Dec. 13, 2016 – Investors seeking yield in the multifamily sector are increasingly exploring value-add opportunities beyond the urban core. On behalf of a joint venture between TruAmerica Multifamily and Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm closed the sale of Arcadia Townhomes, a 309-unit multifamily asset located in Federal Way, Washington, between Seattle and Tacoma. Priderock purchased the asset for $68.5 million.

Managing Directors David Young and Corey Marx led the JLL team on the transaction.

"Rental rates continue to grow at an exceptional rate throughout Puget Sound and investors are casting a wider net to find multifamily assets that deliver value," said Young. "Arcadia Townhomes presented the opportunity to acquire an asset with true value-add potential in a more affordable submarket with strong fundamentals."

Arcadia Townhomes is centrally located within the Puget Sound region's major employment hubs. The asset is comprised almost entirely of townhomes (95 percent) and all units are larger than 1,000 square feet. Community amenities include barbeques and a gazebo, fitness center, clubhouse with Wi-Fi, outdoor pool and hot tub and biking and walking paths.
