Azul Baldwin Park

Jefferson Apartment Group has sold Azul Baldwin Park, a multifamily community in Orlando, Fla., for $43.3 million. Avison Young’s Principal Peter Sherman and Senior Vice President Rosendo Caveiro represented the buyer, Palm Heights LLC. Walker & Dunlop represented the seller. 

“The acquisition of Azul Baldwin Park was for a 1031 exchange,” said Sherman, in a prepared statement. “As we were selling the down leg property, we worked closely and tirelessly together with our client to further build upon their strategy of acquiring institutional properties in select growth markets like Orlando, where we feel strongly about the future demand drivers. With this acquisition, we took advantage of a rare investment opportunity in Baldwin Park, one of Orlando’s most desirable neighborhoods with limited available land for future multifamily development.”
