Bortnick said the company plans to update the building exteriors, improve common areas and amenity spaces, and renovate apartment interiors.

QUAD PROPERTY GROUP ACQUIRES 4TH JACKSONVILLE APARTMENT COMPLEX

Quad Property Group of New York City paid $16.2 million for Peppertree Lane Apartments in Arlington.

The 168-unit apartment property at 2800 University Blvd. S. sold for a $96,428 a unit.

Quad Property Group said it will rebrand the property as The Palms at 2800.

Quad Property Group is a real estate investment firm that specializes in the ownership, redevelopment and management of multifamily properties.

The sale closed Dec. 20 and the deed was recorded Dec. 26. Berkeley Point Capital LLC and Newmark Knight Frank made an almost $11.2 million mortgage to Quad Property Group.

Quad Property group said in a Dec. 23 news release that Newmark Knight Frank Director John Rutherford assisted both parties in the transaction.

It is Quad Property Group’s fourth Jacksonville acquisition.

Quad Property Group posts on its website that it focuses on the acquisition and management of value-add, garden-style multifamily properties in the Southeast.

It says its purchases typically are Class B and C assets built from the 1960s to the 1990s “that are in well-located strategic growth markets.”

It says its goal is to provide investors with superior risk-adjusted returns through its “hands-on, proactive approach to real estate challenges.”

The Peppertree Lane website says a million-dollar renovation is underway.

Property records show Peppertree Lane was built in 1971 on 8.6 acres.

Quad Property Group bought the property through QPG University Apartments LLC.

CMF Peppertree LLC, part of Carter Multifamily of Tampa, sold the property. It paid $12 million for the apartments in April 2018.

The Palms at 2800 is next to the Hart Expressway.

Quad Property Group said it comprises one-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom townhouses from 650 to 1,300 square feet.

It said the complex features two swimming pools, an outdoor kitchen and an on-site leasing office, among other amenities.

Jariel Bortnick, a principal at Quad Property Group, said in the release the company continues “to see opportunity in older, well-located multifamily properties in vibrant growth markets such as Jacksonville.”

“With its dynamic location between downtown and the Southside, The Palms at 2800 is well-situated to capitalize on Jacksonville’s continued growth,” he said.

He said the company plans significant improvements at the property, including the addition of a fitness center and pet park.

Bortnick said occupancy is about 93%. Asking rents range from about $850-$950 a month for one-bedroom apartments and $1,050 to $1,150 for two-bedroom units.

“We have been big believers in Jacksonville and the First Coast for some time now,” said Michael Kashan, also a principal at Quad Property Group.

Seller Carter Multifamily Fund Management Co. LLC says on its website it focuses on buying multifamily real estate investments “that offer value-add enhancement opportunities.”

In a June 5, 2018, news release, Carter Multifamily announced the acquisition of Peppertree Lane, saying the property comprised 18 buildings and was 98% occupied.

Carter Multifamily said it was focused on acquiring value-add Class B and C multifamily assets throughout the United States. It paid $71,429 a unit.

QUAD PROPERTY GROUP ENTERS TENNESSEE WITH CHATTANOOGA PURCHASE

A New York real estate investment company has acquired a 100-unit apartment complex in East Ridge with plans to upgrade the 49-year-old facility.

An affiliate of Quad Property Group bought The Belvoir on Fountain Avenue in East Ridge for $6.55 million as its first acquisition in Tennessee.

“We are very bullish on Chattanooga,” said Jariel Bortnick, a principal at Quad Property Group. “It’s a place where we have wanted to be for some time with all of the growth in the area and the entrepreneurial spirit we see. This acquisition fits the typical profile of the apartments we target — older, well-located properties that could benefit from a renovation program and more hands-on management.”

Michael Kashan, also a principal at the Quad Property Group, said the new owners plan to enhance the exteriors and common spaces at The Belvoir, including a revamp of the swimming pool deck and additional landscaping, while also renovating the interior of some of the units.

First Communities Management, an Atlanta-based apartment management firm for about 50,000 apartment units across the country, has assumed management of the The Belvoir.

The complex was built in 1970 on 5.6 acres at 3725 Fountain Ave. and includes one-, two- and three-bedroom units that now lease anywhere from $660 to $830 a month. Bortnick said rental rates could rise over time but will remain competitive in the market.

The Belvoir also features an on-site leasing office, resident clubhouse, swimming pool, picnic and grilling area and children’s playground.

Despite the addition of more than 6,000 built or planned apartments and condominiums in Chattanooga since 2015, Kashan said the Belvoir is about 95% occupied and remains attractive in its price range for working couples and families.

“Certainly there has been a lot of new apartments added in Chattanooga, but the bulk of the new construction is what is considered luxury, class A product,” he said. “What we are doing here at The Belvoir is taking an older complex that isn’t so luxurious and bringing up the tenant experience to what you would expect in 2019 at a price point that remains competitive.”

QUAD PROPERTY GROUP BUYS ANOTHER AUGUSTA-AREA APARTMENT COMPLEX

An affiliate of New York-based real estate investment firm Quad Property Group said Friday it has acquired Aiken, S.C.’s Steeplechase apartment community for $7.7 million.

The 126-unit complex, built in 1976, is at 749 Silver Bluff Road. The company said the property was 100 percent leased when the sale closed Thursday.

Jariel Bortnick, a principal at Quad Property Group, said the acquisition was a “compelling opportunity” to acquire a well-located property that has not been significantly upgraded since its construction.

“As 100 percent of the apartment units at Steeplechase are in original condition, we are excited by the opportunity to upgrade the apartments to enhance the resident experience,” Bortnick said.

Steeplechase is Quad Property’s second investment in the Augusta-Aiken metro area. In 2017 it acquired Vintage Creek, a 104-unit apartment complex at 1924 North Leg Road, for $5 million.

Steeplechase is composed of a mix of 1- to 3-bedroom units and features a swimming pool, playground and barbecue areas.

Bortnick stated that the company also plans to improve the amenity spaces and common areas at Steeplechase, including converting the former tennis court into a sport court and pet park.

Michael Kashan, also a principal at Quad Property Group, said the company is aiming to acquire additional Augusta-area apartment complexes.

“Since purchasing our first Augusta apartment complex in 2017, we continue to be impressed by the area’s growth,” Kashan said. “We want to be a part of the area’s future and expect to make additional investments.”
