Stoneweg US has acquired Trellis at the Lakes, a 688-unit community in St. Petersburg, Fla., for $114 million. Law firm Meland Budwick represented the seller, ESG Kullen, who acquired the property in 2016 for $80.9 million, from Camden Property Trust, according to Yardi Matrix.

The property is located at 11401 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N., roughly 10 miles north of downtown St. Petersburg. Interstate 275 is less than 2 miles away, while a Publix-anchored retail center is within a mile’s radius. Central Tampa is less than 15 miles northeast of the site.

Built in 1981, Trellis at the Lakes provides 384 one-bedroom and 304 two-bedroom apartments, across 46 buildings. Common-area amenities include fitness and business center, a clubhouse, tennis and basketball court, six laundry facilities and two swimming pools.

Mark Meland and Bryan Vega of Meland Budwick arranged the deal. In 2019, the property became subject to a $67.6 million CMBS loan originated by Newmark.

Last week, another Tampa-area community traded in a deal brokered by CBRE. Buff Management sold Vista at Palma Sola in Bradenton, Fla., located just over an hours’ drive south of Trellis at the Lakes.

ESG Kullen and Admiral Capital Group Complete Successful Sale of Trellis at the Lakes Tampa MSA

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Nov. 12, 2020 — Admiral Capital Group and ESG Kullen announced the sale of Trellis at the Lakes, a 688-unit multifamily property in St. Petersburg, Florida, in the Tampa MSA.

Admiral and ESG acquired the apartment community for $80.9 million in September 2016 through a joint venture. The investment provided an opportunity to purchase a well-located asset at a discount to replacement cost and provide a value housing alternative to the growing workforce in one of the top growth markets in the U.S. The asset was sold for $114 million, representing an increase of over 40% in value.

During its ownership, the joint venture set to improve the aesthetics and overall experience for tenants. The partnership renamed and repositioned the property through exterior enhancements by curing deferred maintenance and upgrading interiors. Improvements included construction of a new state-of-the-art fitness center, pool area enhancements, new outdoor kitchens, other amenity upgrades and landscaping across the property. Interior renovations included upgrading countertops, modernizing kitchens with new cabinets, appliances and flooring and bathrooms. The upgrades and improvements enhanced the offering to potential tenants providing a high-quality, cost-effective alternative to newer nearby assets with higher overall rents.

“Identifying under-capitalized assets in markets with a supply and demand imbalance has been a critical part of our growth and success in the multifamily space,” said Dan Bassichis, co-founder of Admiral. “With its strong fundamentals and accelerating job and population growth, Tampa has been a key market for Admiral, and this property was an ideal fit for executing our value-add investment strategy. We couldn’t be more pleased with the execution with ESG Kullen.”
