LaSalle Acquires Luxury Tampa Apartment Community
CHICAGO (July 21, 2021) — LaSalle Investment Management (“LaSalle”) announced that it has acquired Altis Grand at the Preserve, a newly-constructed, Class A multifamily property in the Tampa suburb of Odessa, Florida. LaSalle purchased the 350-unit property on behalf of a separate account client. The property was developed The Altman Companies, a Boca Raton Florida based real estate development company.
Located in the Tampa suburb of Odessa, Altis Grand at the Preserve provides residents excellent mobility via Highways FL-54 and FL-589, allowing convenient access to the majority of the Tampa MSA. It also provides access to walkable retail amenities such as Greenwise Market, a health-conscious grocery store concept launched by Publix, CVS Pharmacy, Panera Bread, and various other shops. LaSalle Research and Strategy rates Tampa an “overweight” target market for multifamily due to its excellent rent growth, which exceeded the national average by 5.6% as of March 2021, and its low vacancy of just 4 percent for stabilized multifamily properties.
Pat Pelling, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at LaSalle, said: “Altis Grand at the Preserve’s lease-up was strong, even during the pandemic, as a result of the property’s prime suburban location with walkable amenities and easy highway access. Given the strong projected population and economic growth of this market, we feel Altis Grand at the Preserve will continue to see strong leasing momentum and rent growth in the years to come.”
Steve Lieb, Managing Director, Portfolio Manager at LaSalle, said: “Altis Grand at the Preserve is an exceptional property that fits well within our investment thesis given its location, proximity to excellent schools and strong demographic trends in the area. We have conviction that well-located, Class A garden-style multifamily properties will continue to generate strong tenant demand and create excellent cashflow for our client, while appreciating in value as investors continue to favor this property sector. The Sunbelt generally, Tampa included, has seen tremendous job growth and favorable demographic tailwinds to support continued rent growth.”
Altis Grand at the Preserve features luxury unit finishes including stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, in-unit washers and dryers, walk-in closets and programmable thermostats. The community’s amenity package includes a pool, a fitness center, a yoga/wellness lounge, spa lounge, movie theater, wine tasing room and walking trails around the adjacent lake.
