JLL completes sale of Galveston multifamily asset

HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2017 – JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the sale of Driftwood Apartments, a 238-unit multifamily community at 7019 Lasker Drive in Galveston, Texas. Gulf Coast Kington Properties purchased the asset from M - DW, LP.

Managing Directors Chip Nash and Greg Austin and Vice President Bob Heard handled the transaction.

"Driftwood Apartments provides the buyer a great opportunity to capitalize on the growth across the Houston-Galveston region," said Nash. "This property offers a reliable value-add opportunity due to the integrity of the physical structure, desirable location and room to increase rents."

Driftwood is a garden-style apartment complex composed of 15 buildings. The property offers one and two-bedroom units that include fully-equipped kitchens, faux wood floors, ceiling fans, washer and dryer connections, walk-in closets, and private patios and balconies.

Located less than two miles south of Interstate 45, the property is one block from Galveston's seawall and is close to shopping and entertainment at Pleasure Pier and Galveston's Historic Strand District.
