JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – September 26, 2019 – Arch Companies is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Midtown Oaks apartment complex in Jacksonville, Florida for $14.1 million from previous owner InvestRes. InvestRes was represented by Director John Rutherford of Newmark Knight Frank, while financing for the transaction was originated through Arbor Realty’s Fannie Mae Green Rewards Program by Morris Betesh of Meridian Capital Group and Arch Advisors, an affiliate of Arch Companies.
“Jacksonville is a rapidly growing and competitive real estate market right now,” said Jeffrey Simpson, Managing Partner at Arch Companies. “We are excited to be involved in this historic community with this standout residential property.”
Built in 1975, Midtown Oaks is located in the St. Nicholas neighborhood, near St. Johns River and Empire Point. The walkable, centrally located, waterfront neighborhood provides direct access to I-95 and downtown Jacksonville. It is also minutes from the prominent San Marco Square, which offers some of the top restaurants and shopping in Jacksonville.
“Midtown Oaks offers residents a great location in an exciting city that is seeing a large influx of residents looking for a more centralized, urban lifestyle,” said Jared Chassen, Partner at Arch Companies.
The garden apartment complex contains 176 one- to two-bedroom units across 146,400 square feet. The property features wooded landscaping, a swimming pool, a clubhouse, a business center, grilling and picnic areas, on-site laundry, a fitness center and a dog park, as well as is conveniently located near public transportation and local schools.
“This was a very straightforward deal for both the buyer and seller,” said Rutherford. “Midtown Oaks represents an exceptionally well-maintained property in the increasingly popular St. Nicholas submarket of Jacksonville. Arch Companies will benefit from a value-add rehab program matching the demand of the area.”
This acquisition follows Arch Companies’ recent purchase of value-add multifamily units in the greater Jacksonville market and is another important asset in the firm’s growing Southeast portfolio. Since Arch’s inception, it has acquired value-add multifamily properties in Florida, Connecticut, Alabama and California.
