Paces Station

Atlanta—Holliday Fenoglio Fowler has closed the sale of Paces Station, a 610-unit Class B community located in Atlanta’s Vinings neighborhood. The property was marketed on behalf of a national REIT and purchased by TA Associates Realty. The $57 million sales price equates to $93,400 per unit.

The three-phased community was completed in 1989. The 51 buildings have one- and two-bedroom units that average 974 square feet each.

“Paces Station’s location in Vinings, one of Atlanta’s most desirable in-town neighborhoods, provides a great value-add opportunity for the buyer,” says Jason Nettles,  senior managing director at HFF. “Paces Station represents one of the last untouched rehab opportunities for a Class B asset in Vinings. This unique position created a very institutional bid pool and the property sold to an unleveraged, core buyer.”
