660 Apartments

Atlanta, Ga.—Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP has closed the sale of a 301-unit, Class AA apartment community in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. HFF marketed the property, 660 Apartments, on behalf of Southeast Capital Partners and the Integral Group. AMLI Residential Properties Trust purchased the asset for $42,750,000 in an all-cash transaction. The price translates to $142,000 per unit.

“Institutional interest in Atlanta has increased over the past 12 months as fundamentals have improved,” says Jason Nettles, senior marketing director at HFF who led the team with director Megan Thompson. “While we may not see trades at 25 percent over replacement cost like we’re seeing in the gateway markets, Atlanta is clearly moving over the replacement cost benchmark.”

660 Apartments was completed in 2009 and was named “2010 Best New Development” by MHN and a “2010 Gold Medal Winner” by Building of America. The urban-core asset is a submarket leader in effective rental rates due to its design and location adjacent to Historic Old Fourth ward Park, a new 35-acre recreational facility.
