Hotel-to-Multifamily Conversion Brings New Business Stream to RKW

Charlotte, NC-based RKW Residential multifamily management firm has been assigned four Spoke-branded hotel-to-multifamily conversion properties from developer Blaze Capital Partners.

  • Charlotte – Spoke at McCullough Station (124 units located to the University of North Carolina-Charlotte) and Spoke at Tyvola (116 units within the Southwest submarket)
  • Atlanta, Spoke at Peachtree Corners (92 units within Atlanta TechPark)
  • Savannah, Spoke Savannah (106 units in the historic district)

According the RKW, hotel-to-multifamily conversions gained steam during the pandemic as an efficient and cost-effective way to address the housing affordability challenge. With intense demand for rental product in major metropolitan areas throughout the nation, such conversions are now considered a long-term solution.

“We are bullish on the viability of hotel-to-multifamily conversions,” said RKW CEO Marcie Williams. “These Spoke-branded projects in Charlotte and Georgia are already generating tremendous pre-leasing interest.”
