Multifamily Portfolios Continue to Command Significant Investor Demand

JLL completes $400 million sale, secures financing for the Gold Coast Multifamily Portfolio

STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 17, 2017 – On behalf of Building and Land Technology, JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm completed the $400 million sale of the Gold Coast Portfolio. GAIA Real Estate purchased the five Class A multifamily assets located in Stamford, Connecticut. JLL also secured permanent financing for the properties through Fannie Mae. All five loans carry seven-year terms. ​

International Director Peter Nicoletti, Managing Directors Thomas Walsh and Joseph Garibaldi, and Vice President Mark Kindrachuk led the JLL team on the sale and finance transactions.

"This is a tremendous portfolio comprised of top of the line assets positioned to capitalize on high demand for transit-oriented Class A product," said Walsh. "We anticipate this to be one of the largest apartment portfolio sales of year in the tri-state area outside of New York City."

"The combination of this portfolio's quality and location, along with the deal's exceptional sponsorship drew heavy interest from institutional lenders," added Nicoletti. "We continue to see capital flowing to strong portfolios like this as rent growth in the major metropolitan areas creates demand throughout the tri-state area."

 The five assets were built from 2010 to 2014, and total 1,214 units. All five properties are located in the Harbor Point Submarket, just a 10-minute walk from the Stamford Transportation Center (STC). Rail lines from the STC bring commuters to Manhattan in approximately 40 minutes.
