American Landmark Acquires Jacksonville MF for $80M

Tampa-based American Landmark Apartments acquired Sentosa Beachwalk, a brand new 348-unit multifamily community in Jacksonville, for a reported $79.5 million. The community in the Saint John’s suburb will be renamed The Elysian.

American Landmark’s Christine DeFilippis says, “We remain bullish on the long-term prospects for Jacksonville and other cities in the Southeast, which we anticipate will recover quickly once the country re-opens for business.”

Walker & Dunlop’s Brian Moulder and Dhaval Patel brokered the transaction. The seller was reportedly Sentosa Beachwalk Apartments LLC, an entity managed by Boca Raton-based Falcone and Associates LLC.

Built in 2019, Sentosa Beachwalk is located at 65 Sentosa Drive. One, two and three-bedroom units include spacious floor plans, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and smart thermostat and light controls. Community amenities include a 24/7 fitness center, fireside lounge, resort-inspired swimming pool, volleyball courts, playgrounds and laundry and dry cleaning.

The acquisition boosts American Landmark’s portfolio to 30,000 units throughout the Southeast, with four communities in the Jacksonville MSA.
