PHOENIX, November 13, 2019 – JLL announced today it has closed the $75 million sale and arranged $57.2 million in acquisition financing for Indigo Palms, a 432-unit, garden-style multi-housing community in Phoenix, Arizona.

The property consists of 28 two-story buildings that encompass a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units totaling 404,987 rentable square feet. Apartment homes include spacious floor plans, large walk-in closets, fully equipped kitchens, high ceilings, and balconies or patios. Community amenities include a resort-style pool, spa, fitness center, clubhouse, gated access and optional private garages. The property was 94% occupied at closing.
