Ashcroft Capital Enters North Carolina with Purchase of The Apartments at Midtown 501

January 18, 2023

Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced its acquisition of The Apartments at Midtown 501, a 248-unit garden-style community in Chapel Hill, N.C. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company and construction affiliate, has assumed management of the community.

The transaction marks Ashcroft’s entry into the North Carolina market. The company also owns apartment communities throughout metro Atlanta, Texas and Florida, and is actively pursuing additional markets in the Sun Belt. In addition, The Apartments at Midtown 501 is the first property purchased through the Ashcroft Value Add Fund III, which is targeting multifamily assets in select markets throughout the Sun Belt.

“The current capital markets present challenges to our acquisition team. As such, we remain highly selective,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “For this reason, we are focusing on excellent submarkets such as Chapel Hill, which is a high-growth market where we want to invest. We look forward to expanding our portfolio there. Over time, we plan to build a sizable footprint in the Raleigh-DurhamChapel Hill area. And though we’re not in a rush, we saw Midtown 501 as too good of an opportunity to look away from.”

Located at 545 Ashley Court, The Apartments at Midtown 501 is near Highway 15-501 between Downtown Chapel Hill and I-40, which provides residents with easy access to some of the market’s top employment centers. Research Triangle Park, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, UNC Medical Center, Duke University and Duke University Hospital are short commutes from the property. In addition, the surrounding school district is ranked No. 1 in North Carolina by Niche.com.

The previous owner of the community oversaw an extensive renovation of the amenities and apartment homes in 2015, which will allow Ashcroft and Birchstone to focus on making operational improvements and performing light upgrades to the property. Within the apartment homes, Ashcroft and Birchstone will install upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures, tile backsplashes, tech packages and an overall modernization of the color scheme. Improvements to the community’s fitness center, clubhouse, pool, sports courts, curb appeal and landscaping are also planned.

“Given the current volatility in the capital markets, Ashcroft is currently focused on acquiring institutional-quality properties in extremely strong locations. That description fits Midtown 501 to a tee,” said Scott Lebenhart, chief investment officer for Ashcroft Capital. “We believe this approach will help to mitigate risk while still having the potential to capitalize on multifamily’s strong fundamentals. In the case of Chapel Hill, this is a submarket with multiple demand drivers, which is something that we look for. Combine those drivers with the limited availability of single-family homes in the area, and we believe the table is set for Midtown 501 to perform very well.”

Midtown 501 offers spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom units with an average unit size of 1,106 square feet. The apartment homes currently feature granite countertops, island kitchens, stainless-steel appliances, washers and dryers, walk-in closets and balconies/patios. Common-area amenities include a resort-style pool, grilling areas, resident clubhouse, business center, fitness center, game room, volleyball court, dog park, children’s playground and tennis court.

Ashcroft Capital Announces Acquisition of Four Apartment Communities in Metro Atlanta

September 27, 2022

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail

NEW YORK – Sept. 27, 2022 – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced the acquisition of four apartment communities totaling 1,080 homes in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the communities.

The Atlanta-area communities include Halston McDonough (formerly Carrington Green) in McDonough, Ga., Halston South Point (formerly Villas at Southpoint) in McDonough, Halston Shiloh Valley (formerly Shiloh Valley Overlook) in Kennesaw, Ga., and Halston Harris Bridge (formerly Harris Bridge Overlook) in Dallas, Ga.

“In spite of capital market fluctuations, we remain bullish on multifamily based on the current and projected fundamentals within our Sun Belt metros. Because of this, we’re excited to acquire this value-add portfolio of four core-plus quality properties located in a high-growth metro in which we have an existing presence,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “Additionally, this portfolio had a very strong history of institutional ownership, and the previous regime handed them off to us with minimal deferred maintenance. That said, we believe we can significantly improve the assets by updating the classic homes and further modernizing the amenity spaces.”

With the acquisitions, Ashcroft now has 10 communities in metropolitan Atlanta.

“Atlanta is a great example of the kind of Sun Belt market we want to be in,” said Scott Lebenhart, chief investment officer for Ashcroft Capital. “It’s experiencing population growth, has a diverse economy and offers a tremendous quality of life. In short, it’s exactly the kind of metro area in which renters want to be. We only entered the metro Atlanta market last year, but we’re committed to growing a significant portfolio in the area because of the rock-solid fundamentals of the apartment market there.”

The business plan will be similar at each community, as Ashcroft and Birchstone plan to fully refresh the amenity spaces, implement landscaping improvements, upgrade signage and improve overall curb appeal.

In-home upgrades will include the additions of stainless-steel appliances, hard-surface countertops, tile backsplashes, vinyl-plank flooring, upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures, USB ports and new cabinet fronts with modern pulls. Additional improvement measures will include the addition of washer/dryer sets and the implementation of valet trash service.

Existing community amenities are similar at the properties, as each community features a swimming pool, resident clubhouse and business center, fitness center, picnic areas, playground, laundry facilities and a sports court. Apartment interiors at the classic homes in the properties include laminate countertops, black appliances, wood-style cabinet fronts, walk-in closets, private patios or balconies and washer/dryer sets in select homes.

“All four of these assets are highly desirable given the quality and characteristics of the properties,” said David Deitz, president of Birchstone. “They will fit seamlessly into our portfolio, and we believe our in-home renovations and modernization of property features will elevate each community in the pecking order of their respective submarkets. We fully anticipate demand to significantly increase at each property.”

Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the community. The property was purchased through Ashcroft’s Value-Add Fund II.

The community, which features 284 apartment homes, adds to Ashcroft’s burgeoning Atlanta-area portfolio. The company now has five communities in the area, all acquired within the last year, including two within Norcross. Ashcroft also owns communities throughout Texas and Florida.

“We’re big believers in the Atlanta metro market, and will continue to grow our team and pursue opportunities in the area for the foreseeable future,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “Norcross is among the fastest-growing submarkets in the area, due in part to its proximity to the city’s key employment sectors and its highly rated school districts. We look forward to implementing our value-add strategy to modernize the community and reposition it as one the most desirable options in the submarket.”

Located at 4025 Arc Way, Elliot Gwinnett Place sits less than three miles from Interstate 85, a key artery that connects to the greater metropolitan area. The community features spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts and provides a quiet respite from the bustling areas of the city. It also offers easy access to the nearby offices of Comcast, Amazon, Mitsubishi and Hewlett-Packard, as well as the abundance of eateries and shops within downtown Norcross.

Ashcroft’s renovation efforts at Elliot Gwinnett Place, initially built in 1988, will include a full update and modernization of the amenity spaces, improved curb appeal and upgrades to landscaping and community signage. Within the apartment homes, Ashcroft will add stainless steel appliances, hard-surface countertops, tile backsplashes, vinyl-plank flooring, upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures, USB ports and new cabinet fronts with modern pulls. The previous owner recently renovated approximately 25% of the homes.

Existing community amenities include a swimming pool, resident clubhouse and business center, fitness center, picnic areas, playground and laundry facility. Existing apartment features include laminate countertops, white/black appliances, wood-style cabinet fronts, walk-in closets, private patios/balconies and washer/dryer connections.

The two communities add a combined 576 apartment homes to Ashcroft’s growing portfolio. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the communities.

The acquisitions capped an active 2021 for Ashcroft Capital, which acquired 11 properties containing 3,513 units across three states. The properties total more than $700 million in value. The company, which also sold nine assets, is planning to be even more active in 2022.

“We grew very strategically in our target markets in 2021, and the acquisitions of Elliot Windsprint and Halston Park Central capped an outstanding year,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “In 2022, we will continue to be highly selective and disciplined in our investment approach. We are targeting acquisitions of roughly 20 to 25 communities, which we estimate will represent approximately $1.8 billion of aggregate acquisition value. We will remain active in our existing markets in Florida, Georgia and Texas, while also seeking to expand into new markets in the Sun Belt region.”

Elliot Windsprint and Halston Park Central each include 288 one-, two- and three-bedroom homes with various layouts available. Approximately 30% of the homes at each community have undergone renovation, leaving significant opportunity for Ashcroft and Birchstone to add value.

Elliot Windsprint, Ashcroft’s second community in Arlington, is situated at 2305 Windsprint Way and offers expedient access to the Dallas/Fort Worth area’s thriving employment hubs. Existing amenities include a resort-style pool, clubhouse, business center, fitness center, Astroturf soccer field and a dog park.

Based at 2691 Charleston Town Place, the community’s unique amenity offerings include several resort-style swimming pools, a two-story fitness center with yoga studio and spin room, full-size basketball courts, an onsite convenience store and a full-service bar/restaurant.

Ashcroft Capital Announces Acquisition of Elliot Pioneer

December 9, 2021

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail

ARLINGTON, Texas – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced the acquisition of Elliot Pioneer (formerly Monterra Pointe), a garden-style community located almost exactly halfway between Fort Worth and Dallas in Arlington. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the community.

The 200-unit Elliot Pioneer expands Ashcroft’s presence in Arlington (the company also currently owns LIV on the Green) and becomes the 18th community in the company’s rapidly growing Texas portfolio. Ashcroft also owns communities throughout Florida and in metro Atlanta.

“We remain very bullish about the DFW metro,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “Elliot Pioneer represents a tremendous value-add opportunity in a strong submarket of Arlington. The property already has solid frontage and good proximity to many employment hubs, but we will be taking the community to the next level through our interior and exterior renovation program. Combine this with the operational improvements of our in-house property management company, and we believe we will have strong tailwinds supporting the success of our business plan.”

Situated at 2105 Cottonwood Club Drive, Elliot Pioneer is located just south of the E Pioneer Parkway. The community offers residents convenient access to a wide array of cultural, entertainment and dining options, and is also near a number of parks and outdoor activities. AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys) and Six Flags over Texas are among the nearby attractions, as are Waterchase Golf Club, Mountain Creek Lake and Meadowbrook Park.

Renovation efforts at the pet-friendly Elliot Pioneer, which will be performed by Birchstone’s construction team, will include addressing deferred maintenance, fully renovating the amenity and common areas and updating home interiors. In-home improvements will include upgraded countertops, new shaker-style cabinet fronts and pulls, new flooring, upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures and new backsplashes in the kitchens.

Elliot Pioneer offers spacious one- and two-bedroom homes. Apartment homes currently feature black appliances, brushed nickel hardware, washer/dryer connections, vinyl wood-style flooring, ceiling fans and private patios or balconies. Fireplaces are available in select units.

Community amenities include a swimming pool, resident clubhouse, fitness center and ample onsite parking.

“We are excited about the opportunity to bring our expertise and customer-first ethic to Elliot Pioneer,” said David Deitz, president of Birchstone. “This is a community with so many things going for it, and we believe that under our stewardship, it will provide a truly best-in-class resident experience.”

Ashcroft Capital Announces Acquisition of Elliot Norcross

December 3, 2021

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail

NORCROSS, Ga. – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, and National Property REIT Corp. (“NPRC”), a full service REIT that invests in and operates real estate assets, today announced their acquisition of Elliot Norcross (formerly Vida Apartments by ARIUM), a garden-style community located in one of the fastest-growing submarkets in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Elliot Norcross features 687 apartment units and offers quick access to Interstate 85, one of the primary thoroughfares in the city. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed day-to-day management of the community.

NPRC, the majority equity investor in this transaction, focuses on acquiring tenant diversified real estate assets and, as of Sept. 30, 2021, owned 51 multifamily properties with over 20,000 units across the U.S. The off-market acquisition represents Ashcroft Capital’s first transaction with NPRC, and the companies are actively seeking further acquisition opportunities to pursue together. Elliot Norcross also marks Ashcroft Capital’s first acquisition in Norcross and the fourth in the company’s rapidly growing Atlanta-metro portfolio.

“We’re excited to team up on this acquisition with NPRC, which, over the past decade, has acquired 73 communities similar to Elliot Norcross,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “Together with NPRC, we look forward to taking over this property because we feel it offers significant upside potential based on remaining capex and strong submarket rent growth. Only 30% of the units have been renovated, which provides the opportunity to add value by upgrading the classic units. Additionally, Norcross is becoming more and more desirable due to its proximity to Atlanta’s employment centers and its highly-rated school districts.”

Norcross has become a sought-after submarket due to its location directly amidst Atlanta’s I-85 industrial corridor, which is one of the largest industrial districts in the Southeast and represents one of the metro’s primary employment centers. Prominent employers in the Gwinnett County submarket include Comcast, Amazon, Mitsubishi, Hewlett-Packard, and Asbury Automotive.

“Elliot Norcross marks our first joint venture with a major institutional partner and represents a significant expansion of our institutional platform,” said Bill Kay, managing director of capital markets for Ashcroft Capital. “We’re eager to partner with NPRC on an asset that we believe has significant operational upside and value-add potential in a vibrant, on-the-rise submarket. Furthermore, our emerging presence in the Atlanta market gives us the manpower and the infrastructure to deliver high levels of resident satisfaction and strong asset performance across the metro area.”

Renovation efforts at Elliot Norcross, which will be executed by Birchstone’s construction team, are expected to include further updating and modernizing the amenity spaces, improving curb appeal, updating landscaping, and implementing signage upgrades. In-home anticipated improvements include the addition of stainless-steel appliances, luxury laminate countertops, tile backsplashes, vinyl plank flooring, new cabinet fronts with modern pulls, and upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures. New management also plans to add washer-dryer sets to approximately 600 homes.

Situated across 52 acres, Elliot Norcross was built in two phases beginning in 1972, and offers spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom homes with an average unit size of 1,021 square feet. Eighty-five percent of the homes are of the two- and three-bedroom variety, including 128 townhomes. Existing community amenities include two resident clubhouses, two resort-style swimming pools, picnic and grilling stations, fitness center, two soccer fields, play area, and business center.

“Ashcroft Capital has grown an impressive multifamily portfolio in the Atlanta metro over the past two years by strategically acquiring older vintage workforce housing communities that have significant upside potential via renovation programs and the implementation of operational efficiencies,” said Casey Chayet, an investment professional on the NPRC team. “NPRC is pleased to team up with Ashcroft on this acquisition, and we fully expect Ashcroft to reposition Elliot Norcross as a best-in-class community within the fast-growing Norcross submarket.”

ROSWELL, Ga. – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced its acquisition of Elliot Roswell (formerly River Crossing at Roswell), a garden-style apartment community in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the community.

The 312-unit property, which was purchased through Ashcroft Capital’s $150 million Value-Add Fund, becomes the company’s second apartment community in metro Atlanta (it purchased the 412-unit Halston Riverside in Lawrenceville in April). Since its founding, Ashcroft Capital has acquired more than 11,000 units in Dallas-Fort Worth, Orlando, Fla., Tampa, Fla., and Jacksonville, Fla., and is now pursuing acquisition opportunities in the Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Phoenix metro areas.

And with our planned improvements and experienced property management team, Elliot Roswell will be better positioned to capture this growing demand and offer a best-in-class living experience. We are very excited about the future of Elliot Roswell and its performance moving forward.”

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced its acquisition of Elliot Baymeadows (formerly Green Tree Place), a garden-style apartment community in the Royal Lakes neighborhood of southern Jacksonville. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the community.

Elliot Baymeadows, which offers 352 apartment homes, boasts a convenient location just east of Interstate 95 and within a quick commute of the key retail districts of Jacksonville and St. Augustine. The property was purchased through Ashcroft Capital’s new $150 million Value Add Fund, and it becomes Ashcroft’s second community in Jacksonville, joining Southside Villas, which is located just south of downtown. Ashcroft will perform a series of interior and exterior renovations at Elliot Baymeadows, which was originally built in 1986.

“We are big believers in the Jacksonville market, and we look forward to augmenting our presence in the city,” said Frank Roessler, founder and chief executive officer of Ashcroft Capital. “We believe Elliot Baymeadows has a tremendous upside with its opportune location within a desirable, commuter-friendly neighborhood. The community already possesses a charm of its own, and our planned upgrades will deliver the quality finishings that residents of this submarket have come to expect.”

Since its inception, Ashcroft Capital has acquired more than 10,000 units in Jacksonville, Dallas-Fort Worth, Orlando, Fla., and Tampa, Fla. Last month, the company also entered the metro Atlanta market with its acquisition of Halston Riverside, and it continues to pursue acquisition opportunities there. Ashcroft Capital is also looking to enter the Charlotte, N.C., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Phoenix markets.

The in-home renovations at Elliot Baymeadows will include the installation of quartz countertops, undermount sinks, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes, vinyl plank flooring, new lighting and plumbing fixtures and a refreshed color scheme. Refurbishments are also planned for the community’s clubhouse and fitness facilities, while building exteriors will be repainted.

Ashcroft Capital Enters Atlanta Market with Acquisition of Halston Riverside

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced its acquisition of Halston Riverside (formerly Retreat at Riverside), a garden-style apartment community in the Atlanta suburb of Lawrenceville. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company, has assumed management of the community.

The transaction marks Ashcroft Capital’s entry into metro Atlanta. Since its inception, the company has acquired more than 10,000 units in Dallas-Fort Worth, Orlando, Fla., Tampa, Fla., and Jacksonville, Fla., and is now pursuing acquisition opportunities in Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Phoenix. Halston Riverside is the first community purchased through Ashcroft Capital’s new $150 million Value Add Fund, which aims to acquire five to seven assets in targeted markets.

“Halston Riverside represents the type of excellent value-add opportunity that our fund is targeting,” said Frank Roessler, founder and chief executive officer of Ashcroft Capital. “It has a history of institutional ownership, and the property has been very well maintained. At the same time, we have identified ways to add significant value through rebranding and renovations. In addition, Lawrenceville continues to show a strong resilience to the economic effects brought upon by the pandemic.”

The in-unit renovations at Halston Riverside will include the installation of quartz countertops, undermount sinks, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes in kitchens, vinyl plank flooring and new cabinet fronts. Improvements to the community’s clubhouse, dog park and tennis courts are also planned.

“A large part of our strategy is to identify value-add assets in high-growth markets that will support our business plan of providing superior unit renovations at cost-appropriate pricing,” Roessler said. “In Atlanta, we plan to rapidly establish a large footprint of 5,000 units or more in order to achieve economies of scale, market leverage and recruitment strength.”

Situated at 1000 Duluth Highway, near I-85 and Highway 316, Halston Riverside is convenient to both Atlanta and Athens, which is home to the University of Georgia and a thriving music, arts and restaurant scene. Located 30 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, the community features 412 apartment homes and offers residents close proximity to highly regarded schools, a host of restaurants and entertainment venues and abundant outdoor recreational activities.

“The renovations will help an already outstanding community stand out even more against the competition,” said David Deitz, president of Birchstone. “We also believe that our tech-forward, supportive culture and dedication to best-in-class customer service will play a critical role in driving performance. At Halston Riverside and throughout the Ashcroft portfolio, this will result in communities that provide exceptional experiences to our prospects and residents and, in turn, maximize revenue and NOI.”

Halston Riverside offers an array of one- and two- bedroom apartment homes. Some units feature nine-foot ceilings, garden tubs, abundant closet space and ceiling fans. Select homes feature vaulted ceilings, private outside storage, washers, dryers and built-in bookshelves with computer desks for residents who work from home. Attached or detached garages also are available.

Community amenities include package lockers with 24/7 access, controlled gate entry, four resort-style pools with waterfalls, a playground, barbecue grills with picnic areas, state-of-the-art fitness center and a new cyber lounge.
