TruAmerica-Led JV Acquires Pair of ATL MFs for $127M

TruAmerica Multifamily, in partnership with Tokyu Land US Corporation, made its first investments in Georgia, acquiring two Atlanta apartment communities in separate transactions totaling $127.35 million. The properties include:

– Vinings Corner, a 360-unit community located at 2101 Paces Ferry Road SE in Smyrna
– The Prato at Midtown, a 342-unit Class B property located at 400 Central Park Pl., NE in the Old Fourth Ward.

TruAmerica’s Matthew Ferrari says, “We look at new markets very strategically and cautiously, and the acquisition of Vinings Corner in Smyrna and The Prato at Midtown in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward was the right opportunity to enter the Georgia market and expand our footprint in the Southeast in a very meaningful way.”

Both acquisitions were financed via Freddie Mac, and arranged by CBRE’s Brian Eisendrath for Vinings Corner, and Walker & Dunlop’s Trevor Fase and Russell Dey.

CBRE’s Kevin Geiger marketed Vinings Corner on behalf of the seller. JLL’s David Gutting and Derrick Bloom marketed Prato at Midtown on behalf of the seller.
