Brookview at Middletown Entrance and Leasing Office

Middletown development sells for $38 million

A Middletown apartment complex has a new owner.

The Echelon at Middletown — a 210-unit, garden-style apartment complex — has sold for $38 million. The buyer was New York-based Brookview Realty Group, and the seller was Greenwood, Ind.-based Garrett Cos. Garrett Cos. announced the roughly $30 million development in 2016 and completed it in 2017.

In a LinkedIn post, Brookview Realty Group President David Ostreicher said the complex has now been renamed Brookview at Middletown. The company invests in luxury multifamily properties in multiple states.

Echelon at Middletown sits on 12.5 acres at 400 Echelon Drive off Aiken Road between North English Station Road and Shelbyville Road. The complex features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 1,080 square feet.

Prices for the units start around $995 and increase to more than $1,700 per month for a larger three-bedroom unit, according to the complex’s website.  Community amenities there include a pool and spa, pet park, club house and resident lounge among others, according to the release.

Ostreicher said by phone that this is the company’s first investment in Kentucky, but Brookview has been interested in Louisville for a long time.

“We’ve been circling around (Louisville) for years,” he said. “It’s been high on our target list, but this is the first deal that worked out the way we wanted it to.”

Ostreicher said the company invests in markets primed for growth, and he expects future acquisitions in Louisville.

And while this property is only a few years old, Brookview plans to spend about $500,000 on improvements, including upgraded landscaping, Ostreicher said.

The JLL Capital Markets Teams, including Senior Director Wick Kirby, Managing Director Marty O’Connell, Director Kevin Girard and Analyst Kyle Butler, marketed the property for sale on behalf of The Garrett Cos, the release said.


JLL also secured $27.4 million in financing for the acquisition in a 10-year loan, the release said. A JLL Capital Markets debt placement team, led by Senior Managing Director Dave Keller and Analyst Nelson Almond, represented Brookview Realty Group in the deal.

This year has been a big one for high-dollar apartment deals.

Glenmont Capital and Arlington Properties acquired the land for Tapestry Citrus Park in late 2013 and completed the construction and lease-up of the apartment complex in 2015 and 2016.

Brookview at Citrus Park Pool

NKF Capital Markets, Berkeley Point Capital Refinance Tampa Asset Brookview at Citrus Park includes 400 units, as well as a sports pub, a dog park and a fireside lounge.

Berkeley Point Capital and NKF Capital Markets have financed Brookview at Citrus Park in unincorporated Hillsborough County, Fla. The 400-unit property just northwest of Tampa was completed in 2015 and features two- and three-story garden-style buildings. More than two-thirds of units are in two-story buildings with ground-floor entrances and townhome-style floor plans with many direct access garages.

The property was sold in February 2017 by ARA Newmark and financed with a short-term bridge loan placed by NKF Capital Markets, operated by Newmark Group Inc. NKF executive managing director Matthew Williams and associate James Maynard represented borrower Brookview Realty Group LLC in both financings.

Low-density setting

Brookview Citrus Park, at 12780 Olive Jones Road near Gunn Road and Veteran’s Expressway, is in the heart of Citrus Park and 10 minutes from the upscale Tampa Bay submarket of Westshore. The community’s hallmarks are a low-density setting, upscale interiors and a number of amenities, including clubhouse with 24-hour fitness studio featuring virtual spin, yoga and kickboxing. Other amenities include a sports pub with billiards and poker tables, two pools, covered outdoor patio areas with seating, a dog park, picnic areas, grilling stations and fireside lounge.

Apartments offer nine-foot ceilings, stainless appliances, granite countertops, kitchen islands, plank flooring, walk-in closets and screened verandas or open-air porches. ”We replaced the existing floating-rate loan by securing permanent, 10-year fixed-rate agency debt with competitive terms at a rate of 4.4 percent,” Williams said. “Through Berkley Point Capital, Freddie Mac offered an attractive spread and interest-only period, which aligned well with the client’s business plan, and allowed [it] to lock the index early in the process, eliminating the inherent risk in a rising-rate environment.”

The team from Berkeley Point Capital and NKF Capital Markets spent significant time gaining a fundamental understanding of the asset and our business plan as owners,” said David Ostreicher, Brookview Realty Group president.

We have been exceptionally pleased with their diligence and exhaustive work in securing permanent financing that perfectly suited our financial objectives.”
