Stirling Investment Advisors (SIA), a division of Stirling Properties, recently brokered the sale of Sawgrass Point, a 272-unit, Class-AA multifamily property in the Baton Rouge submarket of Gonzales, Louisiana.
The buyer was Passco Companies, a privately held California-based commercial real estate company. Chad Rigby, CCIM and Saban Sellers with SIA, and Telly Fathaly with Walker & Dunlop represented the buyer and seller in the transaction.
Sawgrass Point, located at 2163 Veterans Boulevard in Gonzales, has immediate accessibility to Interstate 10 and is within 20-minutes of East Baton Rouge and approximately 45-minutes from New Orleans. The property has maintained occupancy of 97% and higher since lease-up.
“This exceptionally crafted community is well-aligned with our strategy to acquire multifamily properties in secondary and tertiary markets that capture the lifestyle-oriented, renter-by-choice demographics,” says Colin Gillis, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at Passco. “The developer had the foresight to incorporate several next-generation amenities and build the asset to the highest National Green Building Standard.”
The gated community offers 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units with best-in-market amenities such as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, walk-in showers and soaking tubs, kitchen islands, faux wood blinds, spacious balconies, walk-in closets, and garages with select townhomes. The property also includes a car wash station, 24/7 package lockers, a resort-style pool, a large fitness center and yoga room, group fitness classes, an outdoor kitchen pavilion, a spacious dog park and dog washing salon, a playground, 24-hour emergency maintenance, pool table, a gift-wrapping room, ice machines, an on-site coffee bar, and a business center.
“Multifamily assets remain an attractive investment, especially in high-growth submarkets like Gonzales and the surrounding Baton Rouge area,” said Rigby. “We enjoyed working with Passco and our partners at Walker & Dunlop through this process and are excited to see this deal come to fruition. SIA and Walker & Dunlop are proud to have played a role in such an excellent acquisition and disposition opportunity for our clients.”
