CBRE Group, Inc. announced today that Jeffrey Dunne, Gene Pride and Eric Apfel represented the Seller, TH Real Estate (an affiliate of Nuveen, a TIAA company) in the sale of The Wescott, a 261-unit Class-A apartment community located in Stamford, Connecticut to a private New Jersey based investment group for $67 million.
Built in 1986, the property offers one of the most expansive amenity packages in the market featuring an indoor/outdoor pool, clubroom with kitchen, media lounge and billiards room, fitness center, tennis courts, basketball court, outdoor courtyard and garage parking. Most units have been renovated with all new kitchens, featuring granite counters, new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, new baths, lighting and fixtures. There is also the opportunity for new ownership to grow revenue as there is 8,500 square feet of vacant commercial space that was formerly occupied by medical tenants.
Mr. Dunne commented: “We are pleased to have sold The Wescott which has been painstakingly renovated over the past five years. The unit interior finishes, common areas and building exterior received significant upgrades. This will now allow new ownership to focus on management and operations while adding a few final improvements to the common areas. The buyer is a rapidly growing investment group that has purchased 6,500 residential units in the past 24 months demonstrating the ongoing demand for multifamily assets in strong markets. Stamford continues to attract significant interest given the 24/7 live, work, play lifestyle that is also pedestrian and transit centric. This is highly appealing to the new residents that continue to move to our market as well as the employers that continue to expand.”
