November 20, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has closed the $98.1 million sale and arranged acquisition financing for Augusta Apartments, a 209-unit apartment community in Seattle, Washington.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Vulcan Real Estate, and procured the buyer, a joint venture between Security Properties and STARS REI. In addition, JLL worked on the new owner’s behalf to arrange acquisition financing.
The seven-story Augusta Apartments features 209 rental units and 3,470 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The property features a variety of shared indoor and outdoor spaces including a roof deck and courtyard, each with adjoining community lounges. Additional amenities include a guest suite, study area, fitness center, dog grooming room and a sports court. Completed in 2017, Augusta was designed by Runberg Architecture Group and constructed by Exxel Pacific, Inc. The project is LEED Platinum-certified.
Augusta Apartments is located at 4041 Roosevelt Way NE within walking distance of the University of Washington campus, Burke Gilman Trail and the new University District light rail station, which will open in 2021 at the corner of 43rd and Brooklyn.
The JLL Capital Markets investment advisory team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors David Young and Corey Marx.
