Cushman & Wakefield Arranges $68M Sale of 310-unit Apartment Community in Atlanta

November 24, 2020

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) has arranged the $68.2 million sale of The Eddy at Riverview Landing, a 310-unit apartment community located in Smyrna, Georgia, part of Metro Atlanta.

Robert Stickel, Alex Brown and Ashlyn Warren of Cushman & Wakefield represented the seller, Prestwick Companies, in the transaction. JEM Holdings, a New York-based real estate investment management company, acquired the newly developed multifamily asset which is currently in lease-up.

“There are very few places in metro Atlanta to live and play on the Chattahoochee River,” said Chuck Young, partner and EVP Prestwick Development Company. “We’re very proud of what we’ve created here at Riverview Landing and could not have accomplished what we have here without the City of Smyrna, our debt and equity partners, First Horizon Bank & Palatine Capital Partners, and our contractor, Prestwick Construction.”

The Eddy at Riverview Landing is positioned within a sustainably minded mixed-use development along the Chattahoochee River. The property has offered limited concessions throughout lease-up, providing a firm foundation for effective rent growth post-stabilization.

“The acquisition of The Eddy provided an opportunity for us to utilize 1031 benefits while acquiring a beautifully constructed, core asset at a pre-stabilized valuation,” said Mikael J. Levey, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of JEM Holdings. “We are excited to continue where Prestwick left off in leasing up the property and to provide our investors with superior risk adjusted returns.”

“Prestwick had the vision and opportunity to develop Atlanta’s first multifamily assets along the Chattahoochee River in the last 40 years,” Stickel said. “The Eddy at Riverview Landing provides a unique lifestyle for residents with its thoughtful amenities.”
