Waterton Grabs 236-Unit High-Rise in Atlanta

Waterton Associates expands in Atlanta; Roxbury Ventures completes a $3.9 million sale in West Hollywood; and BMC Capital provides a seven-year $1.739 million acquisition loan via a banking relationship.

2460 PeachtreeAtlanta—Waterton Associates has added a 236-unit high-rise in Atlanta to its portfolio. Located in the city’s Buckhead neighborhood, 2460 Peachtree Apartments will be a value-add play that will see upgrades to the lobby, hallways and units.

“We are pleased to invest in such a well-located high-rise asset at a significant discount to current replacement costs,” says Max Peek, senior vice president, acquisitions, Waterton Associates. “We believe the proposed renovation plan will transform the building and allow us to narrow the gap between us and the newer product located nearby in Buckhead and Midtown.”

The purchase marks the seventh property acquired by Waterton in 2014, and brings the firm’s Atlanta portfolio to more than 1,600 units. Waterton’s in-house management arm, Waterton Residential, will handle day-to-day business. The renovation plan will also improve amenity spaces, which include a fitness center with yoga studio, resort-style pool with sundeck and sauna, an outdoor mediation garden and a clubhouse with billiards table, business center and coffee bar.
