Goodegg, Mesos Capital Acquire North Carolina Community
This is the partnership's 11th purchase in the Carolinas.
Goodegg Investments and Mesos Capital have partnered once again, this time acquiring a 248-unit community in North Carolina. The two companies jointly acquired Waterleaf at Leland in Leland, N.C., for an undisclosed price. According to Yardi Matrix data, the seller was Graycliff Capital.
Graycliff recently completed Waterleaf at Leland in April 2021 after first acquiring the land in November 2019. The newly-built Class A community offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units that range from 626 to 1,243 square feet. The units were built with 9-foot ceilings, private porches and have private garages available. Residents also get access to Waterleaf at Leland’s saltwater pool, outdoor fireplace, clubhouse, coffee bar, fitness center, pickleball court, business center, car wash, dog park, community bike and kayak barn, and valet trash. Annie Dickerson, COO of Goodegg, told Multi-Housing News that the community is 100 percent pre-leased and 96 percent occupied.
Located at 7410 Cordoba Circle, Waterleaf at Leland has a roughly 10-mile commute to downtown Wilmington. The property is also located within the master-planned Westgate community that includes other residential developments. Dickerson said in prepared remarks that the Leland submarket and the surrounding greater Wilmington metro showed strong population growth, job growth, job diversity and a better quality of life.
A GROWING DUAL PORTFOLIO
The acquisition of Waterleaf at Leland marks the 11th time that Goodegg and Mesos have jointly acquired a community in North or South Carolina. Dickerson told MHN that the Carolinas portfolio is seeing both high occupancy numbers and resident retention across its communities and added that Goodegg would continue focusing on these markets.
Overall, the collective portfolio between the two companies includes more than 8,000 units across Texas and the Southeastern states that they own or operate. Besides multifamily properties, Goodegg has also invested in 18 self-storage facilities in Texas and two hotels in Indiana as part of its Diversification Funds.
