A fund sponsored by CBRE Investment Management closed on a mortgage loan to finance a joint venture of LEM Capital and McCann Realty Partners’ acquisition of the Five Oaks apartment complex in a northeast suburb of Atlanta.

Five Oaks apartments is a Class A, garden-style multifamily property located at 1200 Montreal Road in Tucker, Georgia, and includes 280 units that feature nine-foot ceilings and private balconies/patios. Select units offer fireplaces, built-in bookcases and washer/dryers in-unit. Residents also have access to various community amenities that include a fitness center, a resort-style swimming pool with a sundeck and grilling stations, clubhouse with cybercafé, business center, car care center, dog care center and a secure package room.

“This transaction provided an opportunity to lend to an established multifamily investor with a strong track record in Atlanta and across the Southeast. We believe that the new ownership’s renovation plans coupled with strong economic fundamentals will ensure that this asset provides long-term profitable outcomes for our investors while also offering an excellent living experience for the residents,” said Michelle Liu, Managing Director for CBRE Investment Management.

Ryan Ade and Ware Shipman of JLL arranged the loan on behalf of the sponsor.

Five Oaks is well-located at the intersection of I-285 and US-78, providing residents with convenient access to the business, retail and entertainment nodes of Chamblee/Brookhaven, Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta. According to research from CBRE Econometric Advisors, the Clarkston/Tucker submarket currently has a low residential vacancy rate of 2.1% as of first quarter 2022, supporting strong demand for quality apartment spaces in the area.
