DALLAS, Oct. 16, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale and arranged the acquisition financing for AMLI Design District, a 314-unit, Class A, mixed-use, high-rise multi-housing asset located in Dallas, Texas.

JLL represented the seller, AMLI Residential, and procured an international real estate investor as buyer, HASTA Capital. JLL worked on behalf of the new owner to secure acquisition financing through Freddie Mac Multifamily. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC., a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Director Roberto Casas. The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Directors Melissa Quinn and Lee Weaver, Vice President Rob Rothaug and Analyst Cristian Sieman, with an assist from the local Dallas Debt Advisory team, including Director Lauren Dow and Associate Chris Grievous.

“We are thrilled to have closed this transaction for HASTA that exemplifies the perfect blend of a great asset, a fast execution and incredible teamwork,” said Quinn. “Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our respective teams, the deal was swiftly executed, ensuring that our client's objectives were met with the Freddie Mac loan.”

Originally built in 2013, AMLI Design District consists of 312,806 square feet of residential space, 26,830 square feet of ground-floor retail and an expansive covered parking garage with 664 spaces. The property features studio, one- and two-bedroom units with gourmet kitchens, stainless-steel appliances, spa-style bathrooms, walk-in closets, full-size washers and dryers, quartz countertops, floor-to-ceiling windows and hardwood-style vinyl floors.
