Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces the sale and financing of The Preserve at Old Dowlen, a 304-unit, Class A asset in Beaumont, Texas, just under 90 miles east of Houston. NKF Senior Managing Directors Brad Shaffer and Brandon Miller represented Houston-based Venterra Realty in the sale to private buyer, LPI Holdings, based in Miami, Florida. NKF Multifamily Capital Markets Debt & Structured Finance Executive Managing Director Purvesh Gosalia worked on behalf of LPI Holdings to secure a 12-year, fixed rate acquisition loan from Fannie Mae. The property sold for an undisclosed price and was 93 percent occupied at the time of sale.
According to Shaffer, “LPI Holdings chose this property due to the strong historical occupancy and in-place yield. They also recognized the fact that the Beaumont market is fundamentally sound and has had very little new supply delivered in the past five years.” He added, “LPI was able to secure high leverage agency debt with four years of interest only, further increasing going in returns.” This was LPI Holdings’ first multifamily acquisition in the Beaumont market.
Constructed in 2008, The Preserve at Old Dowlen is a garden-style community offering one-, two- and three-bedroom units amenitized with washer/dryers, cherry wood cabinets, wood-burning fireplaces, built-in desks and stainless steel appliances. The community offers residents access to a beach entry pool with splash pad and swim-up sundeck, garages and covered parking and a clubhouse with a business center.
Located in the affluent northwest submarket of Beaumont, Texas, residents are conveniently situated adjacent to Parkdale Mall and other major retail centers.
Venterra specializes in the identification, development, finance, acquisition and management of multifamily communities throughout the southern U.S. with a portfolio valued at over $2.8 billion.
