A fund sponsored by CBRE Investment Management closed on an $85.3 million mortgage loan to finance CARROLL’s acquisition of the ARIUM Winters Chapel apartment complex in a northeast suburb of Atlanta. The floating-rate loan has an initial term of three years, can extend up to an additional two years, and features future funding to finance the sponsor’s business plan.

Formerly known as Jasmine at Winters Chapel, ARIUM Winters Chapel is a low-density, garden-style property located at 4335 Winters Chapel Road and includes 592 units that offer one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Units feature hardwood-style flooring, resurfaced cabinets, private balconies, tile backsplashes and washer/dryers in select units. Residents also have access to various community amenities that include a fitness center, two swimming pools, a soccer field, picnic and grilling areas, two dog parks, a playground, a clubhouse, a business center and controlled gated access.

“This transaction provided an opportunity to lend to an experienced operator on an asset that has historically performed well. We believe that the new ownership’s operating expertise and planned capital improvements for interior renovations and exterior enhancements will generate significant upside for this asset,” said Charles Kim, Managing Director for CBRE Investment Management.

“We are thrilled to close our first loan with CBRE Investment Management on this transaction and look forward to growing our relationship. This asset will be a great addition to our Atlanta portfolio and we are excited to execute our business plan,” said Casey Barber, Senior Vice President of CARROLL.

Robert Kadoori of CBRE Atlanta’s Debt & Structured Finance team arranged the loan on behalf CARROLL.

ARIUM Winters Chapel is well-located in Doraville, Georgia, close to I-85, I-285 and Buford Highway, providing convenient access to multiple employment hubs in the Atlanta metro area, including Chamblee/Brookhaven, Buckhead, Perimeter Center and the Midtown Atlanta business, arts and entertainment district. Residents of the complex also benefit from its accessibility to several shopping, lifestyle and dining amenities in the area.
