Dunwoody Submarket

The property is in the high barrier-to-entry Dunwoody apartment submarket, characterized by limited land zoned for multifamily and strict code enforcement, according to Mike Kemether, Josh Goldfarb and Travis Presnell of Cushman & Wakefield, who represented the seller in the transaction.

“Barclay at Dunwoody has the opportunity to be a submarket leader within its comp set, providing residents 100 percent podium parking,” Kemether said. “The high cost to replicate this elevatored, podium construction means that Barclay at Dunwoody will have no notable peers in the submarket for the foreseeable future.”
