JLL announces it has closed the sale of Maitland Station, a 293-unit, mid-rise apartment community in Maitland, Florida.

JLL arranged the sale of the property from Epoch Residential to Nicol Investment Company (“Nicol”). Nicol purchased Maitland Station free and clear of existing debt.

Maitland Station is located on the historic Parker Lumber Yard site at 801 Orlando Avenue. Completed in 2018, the luxury transit-oriented development is adjacent to the Maitland SunRail station, which provides access to the area’s top retail, dining, employment and recreational destinations. Floor plans include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 942 square feet that are appointed with high-end amenities, including Shaker-style cabinetry, subway tile kitchen backsplashes with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood-style flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit washers and dryers and electronic keyless entry. Community amenities include a pool with lounge area and fire pit; outdoor summer kitchen with gas grills; 24-hour fitness facility with separate CrossFit studio; cyber café; media room; game lounge with billiards and community kitchen; private conference room and business center; and pet park with dog washing station.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by senior director Brett Moss and managing director Elliott Throne.

“We are thrilled to buy a high-quality, core asset in the vibrant Maitland community and capitalize on its proximity to the SunRail,” said Grant Nicol, director of finance for Nicol Investment Company. “It was a pleasure to work with the Epoch Residential and JLL teams on a successful transaction.”

“The Orlando multi-housing market continues to garner robust interest from a diverse roster of investors due to the positive market fundamentals such as employment and population growth that continue to play out across the region,” Moss added. “It was a pleasure to advise Epoch Residential on the strategic sale of the property to Nicol, who are eager to expand their presence in Orlando.”
