Berkadia’s Chicago office has facilitated the sale of two multifamily assets in Milwaukee and Indianapolis, totaling 260 units. Managing Director Ralph DePasquale, Director Parker Stewart and Senior Managing Director Alex Blagojevich brokered the sale of Franklin Park Apartments, a 128-unit multifamily asset in Milwaukee. The team, which recently brokered the $13.6 million sale of Weidner Apartment Homes in the same city, worked on behalf of sellers Brickman Real Estate and Peloton Investors. The $9.6 million deal marked Tricap Residential Group’s first acquisition in Wisconsin. 

Located at 3641 W. College Ave., Franklin Park is 11 miles south of downtown Milwaukee. The community is close to Interstate 94 and within 2 miles of several dining and retail establishments. Completed in 1973, the asset encompasses 13 two-story buildings. Tricap Residential plans to execute a value-add strategy on the property, including unit renovations and rebranding. At the time of the sale, 95 percent of the one- and two-bedroom units were occupied.
