PORTLAND, OR, Feb. 23, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $26.85 million sale and arranged acquisition financing for Meadowland Apartments, a 168-unit, garden-style apartment in Portland, Oregon, which will now be known as Township Eastside.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, NBP Capital. Glencrest Group acquired the asset. Additionally, JLL worked on behalf of the new owner to originate the 10-year, fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac Multifamily. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC., a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

Built in 1991, Township Eastside features two-bedroom and two-bathroom units with an average size of 986 square feet plus in-unit laundry and a patio or balcony.  The majority have not been renovated.  Current amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, playground and detached garages.

“We are thrilled to add Township Eastside to our growing portfolio,” said Glencrest Group’s Managing Partner John Adair. “Glencrest will invest in this quality asset to improve resident experience and looks forward to helping the neighborhood thrive.”

Situated at 17310 SE Naegeli Dr., Meadowland Apartments is set within the East Portland submarket of Gresham. The property is 20 minutes from Downtown Portland and less than an hour from Mt. Hood, offering residents access to the region’s largest employers and most sought-after recreational destinations. Gresham features 200 acres of parks, 840 acres of natural areas and eight miles of trails. Additionally, 4.4 million square feet of retail space is within a three-mile radius, including Gresham Station Shopping Center and Historic Downtown Gresham. Residents also benefit from proximity to Interstate 84, Highway 26 and Interstate 205.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Ira Virden, Managing Director Carrie Kahn and Director Frank Solorzano.
