JLL Capital Markets announced that it has closed the $200 million sale of Halstead Station, a 24-story, 408-unit, luxury, high-rise multihousing community located at the Metro North train station in New Rochelle, Westchester County, New York.
JLL represented the seller, an affiliate of The DSF Group, in this transaction. Kholsa Capital LLC, in a preferred equity venture with Pacific Urban Investors, acquired the asset.
Built in 2001, Halstead Station features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with open floor plans, large windows with panoramic views, light-filled kitchens and plush carpeting. Select units feature in-unit washers and dryers and walk-in closets. Community amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a resident lounge, a CrossFit gym, a yoga and stretching area, a fully equipped training studio, complimentary fitness classes, an outdoor swimming pool, a courtyard with barbecue grills, a dog bark park, a kids’ lounge, private conference pods and a business center.
The property benefits form its prime CBD location that is at the entrance to the New Rochelle Metro North Station. New Rochelle Station provides access to New York City’s Grand Central Station in under 30 minutes. Additionally, Amtrak passenger rail service offers connections between the region’s prominent cities, including Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Residents also are within walking distance from nearby dining, recreation and retail.
The JLL Capital Markets Investment Advisory team representing the seller was led by Jose Cruz, Steve Simonelli, Michael Oliver, Andrew Scandalios, Kevin O’Hearn, Marion Jones and Josh Stein.
“Demand for New Rochelle multihousing remains very strong with investors underwriting significant rental upside in the market,” stated Cruz.
“The sale of Halstead Station represents another successful execution of our value-add strategy and the completion of our second investment in New Rochelle,” stated Josh Solomon, President of The DSF Group.
“We are excited to acquire an institutional quality asset in one of Westchester county’s premier locations. Given its strategic location, its value-add potential and all the development in New Rochelle, Halstead Station is a great fit for our portfolio. We look forward to improving the property; enhancing the living experience for our residents and creating value for our investors,” said Mr. Khosla, Founder and CEO of Khosla Capital.
