GLENMONT ACQUIRES 14-ACRE MULTIFAMILY SITE IN TAMPA

New York, New York – Glenmont Capital Management, LLC, a New York-based real estate investment firm led by Managing Principal, Lawrence A. Kestin, and Arlington Properties Inc., a Birmingham-based apartment company led by Jim Dixon, announced the acquisition of a 14-acre assemblage at 6835 Gunn Highway in the North Hillsborough submarket of Tampa for the development of Canopy at Citrus Park, a 318-unit Class-A apartment community. The planned development follows the success of Glenmont and Arlington’s development of Tapestry at Citrus Park, a recently constructed, leased-up, and sold 400-unit Class-A apartment community located in the same North Hillsborough submarket.

The property acquired is situated at the northeast corner of Gunn Highway and Veteran’s Expressway, just minutes from countless shopping and dining venues, beaches, Westshore Business District, Tampa International Airport, and Downtown Tampa.

Canopy at Citrus Park’s one-, two- and three-bedroom units will average 993 square feet and benefit from a best-in-class amenity package that will cater to young professionals, families, and corporate relocations. Unit interiors will have washer/dryers, walk-in closets, linen closets, nine-foot ceilings, granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, subway tile backsplashes, premium tub and shower surround tile, modern lighting and plumbing fixtures, and designer plank flooring. The clubhouse will have dramatic 14’-18’ ceilings and include a state-of-the-art fitness center, cyber café, business center, game room, and leasing offices. A resort-style pool and pool deck will sit immediately behind the clubhouse, adjacent to an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and grand lawn. The goal of the exterior amenity spaces will be to create a grand visual impact and to provide spaces which create social connections.

Construction is expected to begin in Q1 of 2017, with first move-ins scheduled for 12 months thereafter. Canopy at Citrus Park will represent the twelfth multifamily project undertaken by Glenmont and Arlington together, dating back to 2002.

“Glenmont continues to believe select investments in domestic real estate development opportunities provide compelling risk-adjusted opportunistic returns for sophisticated investors” Mr. Kestin said. “The project is representative of Glenmont’s on-going strategy to develop best-in-class, stabilized income-producing real estate assets, taking advantage of monetization opportunities from the growing institutional and public demand for these investments.”

Further reflecting Glenmont’s strategy, Glenmont and Arlington recently announced the sale of Tapestry at Citrus Park to an institutional owner/operator following a successful lease-up.
