JLL Capital Markets announced that it has closed the sale and arranged the acquisition financing for AMLI Design District, a 314-unit, Class A, mixed-use, high-rise multi-housing asset located in Dallas, Texas.
Originally built in 2013, AMLI Design District consists of 312,806 square feet of residential space, 26,830 square feet of ground-floor retail and an expansive covered parking garage with 664 spaces. The property features studio, one- and two-bedroom units with gourmet kitchens, stainless-steel appliances, spa-style bathrooms, walk-in closets, full-size washers and dryers, quartz countertops, floor-to-ceiling windows and hardwood-style vinyl floors. Community amenities include an infinity-edge pool, a pool deck with private cabanas, premium outdoor grilling stations, a coffee bar and skyline lounge, complimentary bike rentals and personal bike storage, a pet spa, indoor and outdoor pet parks, a state-of-the-art fitness center, an executive conference room and more.
The property sits within the Dallas’s popular Design District, which is a part of the greater Intown submarket and is best known for high-end retail shops, luxury showrooms and eclectic dining experiences. AMLI Design District is conveniently located directly off of I-35E, allowing visibility to approximately 250,000 vehicles per day and providing residents an eight-minute drive to the employment hub of downtown Dallas. Additional proximate demand drivers include Victory Park, Uptown, the Dallas Medical District and Downtown Dallas, Harwood district, the Northend redevelopment, Klyde Warren Park and Deep Ellum. The property also is just a 20-minute drive to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
JLL represented the seller, AMLI Residential, and procured an international real estate investor as buyer, HASTA Capital. JLL worked on behalf of the new owner to secure acquisition financing through Freddie Mac Multifamily. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC., a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.
The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Director Roberto Casas. The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Directors Melissa Quinn and Lee Weaver, Vice President Rob Rothaug and Analyst Cristian Sieman, with an assist from the local Dallas Debt Advisory team, including Director Lauren Dow and Associate Chris Grievous.
“We are thrilled to have closed this transaction for HASTA that exemplifies the perfect blend of a great asset, a fast execution and incredible teamwork,” said Quinn. “Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our respective teams, the deal was swiftly executed, ensuring that our client’s objectives were met with the Freddie Mac loan.”
