Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the closing of the $56 million sale of Mallards Cove and Shell Trace, two adjacent multi-housing communities totaling 359 units in Jupiter, Florida.
The HFF team marketed the offering on behalf of the seller, Preston Giuliano Capital Partners. Northland Investment Corporation purchased the assets free and clear of existing debt. The buyer has combined the two properties and rebranded the community as Jupiter Isle.
Jupiter Isle consists of 46 two-story buildings located around two ponds and a central green at 6705 Mallards Cove just southeast of the Interstate 95/State Highway 706 interchange and less than 30 minutes from West Palm Beach. Additionally, the communities are convenient to Jupiter’s exclusive golf courses and recreation areas; the newly completed Harbourside Place mixed-use development; Jupiter Medical Center; The Scripps Research Institute and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience at Florida Atlantic University. The property’s one- and two-bedroom units average 818 square feet with features, including large walk-in closets, linen closets, storage space, washers and dryers, and balconies or patios. The property is 97 percent occupied.
The HFF investment sales team included senior managing director Matt Mitchell, managing director Jaret Turkell, senior director Maurice Habif, director Zach Nolan and analyst Simon Banke.
“Jupiter Isle is a classic value play and one of those properties that will always be in high demand,” Mitchell said. “It offers residents the combination of a fantastic location and better affordability compared to newer communities in Jupiter.”
