DALLAS, Jan. 4, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has secured joint venture equity for the development of Four Corners, a 404-bed / 136-unit student housing development adjacent to the University of Cincinnati.

JLL represented premier national developer, Dallas-based Fountain Residential Partners, in procuring joint venture equity from global investment manager L&B Realty Advisors on behalf of its client.

Upon completion in 2024, the three-building, four-story project will provide an upscale living experience with excellent proximity to the flagship University. Each unit will feature queen-sized pillow-top mattresses, walk-in closets, 60-inch HD flat screen TVs and high-speed internet.

Four Corners will sit on Central Parkway, a major North/South thoroughfare that will provide excellent visibility and frontage to the community as well as direct access to the entire city of Cincinnati. The project is adjacent to the southwest border of the University, home of the school of pharmacy, biology and research departments. Additionally, residents will be within minutes of all of the Universities offerings, including the College of Arts and Sciences, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business and Nippert Stadium.

The JLL Capital Markets Advisory team featured Senior Managing Director Jeremy Sain, Managing Director Teddy Leatherman and Analysts Ryan Pollack and Danielle Rice.
