Looking at the market

“Jupiter Isle is the prototypical Northland value-add investment,” Gottesdiener continued. “It will be a comprehensive interior and exterior rehab program and a complete operational overhaul of an under-renovated asset in a high barrier-to-entry market.”

The privately held Northland Investment Corp. currently owns and operates 23,538 apartment units, 2 million square feet of commercial space, and land for the future development of 3,000 multifamily units. The company’s Flordia holdings include 31 communities, such as the nearby Floresta, as well as Windward at the Villages, Royal St. George and Village Place in West Palm Beach.
