Carroll had renovated the pool deck, gym and playground, as well as the units with stainless steel appliances, fresh paint and faux wood plank flooring, according to a press release.

American Landmark, led by Joe Lubeck, in its own release said it plans an additional $1.7 million in capital improvements to the units and amenities. It will renovate the appliances, cabinets, tile backsplash and quartz countertops, and will add USB outlets and electronic smart locks. American Landmark also will upgrade the clubhouse, landscaping, gym, pool furniture, pet wash station and dog park.

American Landmark, a multifamily owner-operator, has a portfolio of 32,000 units across the South and Texas, according to its website. The Plantation complex is its 27th in Florida and 10th in South Florida, according to the release.

In 2019, American Landmark and its equity partner Electra America closed on a $462 million multifamily fund for 37 multifamily assets with 12,600 units in the Southeast. The fund came on the heels of American Landmark buying the 448-unit Cielo Boca in Boca Raton for $91.5 million.

Several multifamily projects in Broward County have traded over the past month, and even more are scoring construction financing. Landmark Cos. bought Coral Falls Apartment Homes in Coral Springs for $40.2 million; and Stiles Corp. and PGIM Real Estate bought a Plantation multifamily site for $5.4 million and scored a $64.2 million construction loan for the 315-unit project.
