SEATTLE – On May 31, 2018, Admiral Capital Group (“Admiral”) and Security Properties (“SP”) purchased Hamptons at Woodland Pointe, a 240-unit multifamily property located in Nashville, TN.
Hamptons at Woodland Pointe is a Class B+ garden-style apartment community that was constructed in 2001 by Bristol Development. The residential units are a mix of one, two and three-bedroom floorplans with an average unit size of 1,092 SF. Unique from the other apartment communities in this area, direct access garages are included in 120 of the units (50%).
The business plan is a heavy value-add, in a secondary ring of a high growth metropolitan area. “We are excited to acquire this property in a strong market with a highly diversified economy and transform the community into a best in class asset,” said Admiral Co-Founder Dan Bassichis. “It is uniquely positioned given the large unit sizes, lower density layout and direct access garages and will benefit greatly from a major upgrade to the amenities and unit interiors.” Security Properties will renovate all of the unit interiors to a high end finish and redesign the clubhouse to be more functional and modern. Specifically, Security Properties will add washer and dryer appliances, stainless steel appliances, quartz or stone countertops, lower breakfast bars, and add modern cabinet faces. In the clubhouse, Security Properties will extend the pool deck to the clubhouse for a more seamless transition, as well as expand the fitness center into the theater room.
The property is located is located approximately 15 minutes east of downtown Nashville and 5 minutes from the Nashville International Airport (BNA). The asset is approximately 100 yards from Percy Priest Lake, Nashville’s primary recreational lake, and is near a variety of associated amenities. Hamptons is also proximate to corporate and industrial employers, aside from the 15 million square feet of office in the CBD. Nearby, just north of the Airport, is an approximate 5 million square feet of office in the Highland Ridge business park and surrounding areas, as well as another 5 million square feet of mixed use industrial in Elm Hill. Prominent employers in the area include Deloitte, TriStar Medical Center and Kroger Corporate.
According to Tad Johnson, Senior Investment Manager at Security Properties, “Hamptons was appealing to us because of the combination of unique product type and the location that is near not only dominant jobs nodes but
also Percy Priest Lake. As the Nashville MSA continues to attract employers, the long-term competitive advantages at the asset-level should create value for our investors.”
“The investment in Hamptons at Woodland Pointe is the continuation of a long term relationship with Security Properties,” said Jarett Kaplus, Principal at Admiral. “We continue to proactively seek additional value-add multifamily investments nationwide, including increasing our presence in Nashville.”
SP now owns five assets totaling 795 units in the Nashville marketplace and the property will be managed by Security Properties-affiliate Security Properties Residential.
The acquisition represents Admiral’s first investment in Nashville bringing its units currently under management nationally to 12,032. Admiral Co-Founder David Robinson added, “Nashville’s impressive job growth and strong multifamily fundamentals make it an attractive investment target for Admiral and we are thrilled to expand on our success across the country into a new market.”
