Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the sale of Riverwalk Pointe at Mangrove Bay, a 55+ community in Jupiter, Fla. Pleasant Valley Market Place LLC acquired the property for $26.8 million.
Mangrove Bay Housing LLC, a joint venture of Eastwind Development and Index Apartments LLC, sold the residential asset in a 1031 exchange deal. Vice Chairman Robert Given, Executive Vice President Calum Weaver, Executive Managing Director Zachary Sackley and Senior Managing Director Troy Ballard led C&W’s South Florida institutional multifamily team that negotiated the transaction.
Newly Built Units
Located at 1026 S. U.S. Highway 1, Riverwalk Pointe at Mangrove Bay consists of 104 units within two buildings, with one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 1,123 square feet. Amenities include a 3,500-square-foot clubhouse between the buildings with a swimming pool and fitness center. The units feature high-end finishes, stainless steel kitchen appliances, washer/dryers, granite countertops and vinyl plank flooring. Completed in 2014, the community is currently stabilized with 95 percent occupancy and an average rent of $1.76 per square foot.
“The property received a significant amount of investor interest from a broad cross-section of potential buyers due to its location, vintage and size,” said Weaver, in prepared remarks. “We ultimately went with an out-of-state buyer who was able to move quickly due to 1031 exchange requirements,” he added.
