Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the $82 million sale of Overton Row, a 323-unit apartment community located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Marc Robinson, Jordan McCarley and Watson Bryant of Cushman & Wakefield represented the sellers, CampusWorks Development, Kaplan Residential and an affiliate of global investment firm The Carlyle Group, in the transaction. Lindemann Multifamily Management acquired the property.
“This deal is significant for Lindemann Multifamily Management because it represents our growth into new markets,” said George Lindemann, Founder of Lindemann Multifamily Management. “This is our first acquisition in Charlotte. We were attracted to the city because it’s vibrant and full of potential and we are eager to make our own contribution to this thriving city. We are thrilled to add Overton Row to the family. With a variety of apartment layouts, elegant finishes, and amenities like a fitness center, clubhouse, and pool, Overton Row distinguishes itself in the market and is just the kind of property we want in our portfolio. We look forward to continuing to nurture this special community.”
Overton Row borders Uptown Charlotte and the state’s leading healthcare systems, offering unparalleled access to the metro’s predominantly white-collar employment hubs, as 145K+ jobs are within a five-minute drive. Boasting custom-built interiors and superior aesthetics, the award-winning community offers top-of-the-line features and amenities to an affluent resident base of high-earning, 74 percent-millennial population.
“Overton Row is a premier asset in Plaza Midwood, an urban neighborhood that has become one of the most dynamic in Charlotte due to its authenticity and proximity to Uptown Charlotte,” Robinson said. “With a prominent presence at the corner of Central Avenue and Hawthorne Lane, the property offered the rare opportunity to acquire an institutional-quality midrise asset in the city’s most walkable urban nucleus.”
