Cortland Partners paid $73.9 million for the Depot Station apartment complex in Delray Beach, marking one of the largest multifamily deals in South Florida since the start of the pandemic.
The Atlanta-based real estate investment firm bought the 284-unit complex at 203 Depot Avenue for $260,211 per unit, records show. Atlanta-based Wood Partners sold the property.
Cortland secured a $37 million loan from Walker & Dunlop to acquire the complex, records show.
