BOSTON and CHICAGO, September 30, 2021- Bain Capital Real Estate and Magnolia Capital today announced the acquisition of Highlands at Alexander Pointe, a garden-style and townhome multifamily apartment community located in the Charlotte, North Carolina metro area.
Highlands at Alexander Pointe consists of 309 units totaling 359,120 square-feet, and is conveniently located in the University City submarket of Charlotte, the metro’s second largest employment hub. The area is home to regional offices for more than twenty Fortune 500 companies and over 75,000 employees. The asset is proximate to the LYNX Blue Line light rail and the I-85 and I-485 interchanges providing easy access to Uptown Charlotte as well as the surrounding area’s shopping, restaurants, and entertainment attractions. The community was built in 2002 and is currently 97% occupied.
The units feature open and spacious layouts in a diverse range of floor plans, all with private, ground floor entryways and nine-foot ceilings. Furthermore, 80% of units have direct-access garages and 29% of units are 2-bedroom townhome floorplans, features that differentiate the property from its competitive set. The community also has resort-style amenities available to all residents, including a clubhouse, swimming pool, 24-hour fitness center, and an onsite dog park.
“As one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country, Charlotte is a high conviction market for us due to its strong fundamentals, highlighted by an abundance of top-tier employers,” said Kavindi Wickremage, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Real Estate. “We believe Highlands at Alexander Pointe is well-positioned to benefit from our strategic value-add approach, and we look forward to partnering with Magnolia Capital to strengthen and improve the community.”
“We are excited to acquire Highlands at Alexander Pointe which very much represents our strategy of investing in well located assets with unique physical attributes,” added Maxwell Peek, CEO & Managing Principal of Magnolia Capital. “We look forward to executing our business plan, and look forward to the continued growth of our partnership with the team at Bain Capital Real Estate.”
Bain Capital Real Estate and Magnolia Capital formed a joint venture in November 2020 to acquire, renovate and operate value-added multifamily housing, with an initial focus on compelling Sunbelt markets. The joint venture focuses on executing capital upgrades to unit interiors, building exteriors and amenity spaces, and improving property operations through proactive asset and property management strategies.
