Pantzer Properties closed its second multifamily deal in Palm Beach County in 11 months, buying a 136-unit apartment complex for $66.5 million.
An affiliate of the New York-based multifamily real estate investment firm acquired Solera at City Centre Apartments at 2100 PGA Boulevard 100 in Palm Beach Gardens, according to records. Pantzer, led by co-CEOs Jordan and Jason Pantzer, paid $488,971 per unit. The buyer obtained a $43.3 million mortgage from U.S. Bank.
The seller, a joint venture between Palm Beach Gardens-based Eastwind Development Group and Prague, Czech Republic-based ICP, paid $4.2 million for the land in 2019, records show. The partnership completed the two apartment buildings and the adjoining City Centre retail, restaurant and office complex last year. That complex was not included in the Pantzer deal.
Solera offers a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments ranging from 682 square feet to 1,363 square feet, according to Apartments.com. Rents are not listed on the website. The three-story buildings share a clubhouse, pool and central courtyard, records show.
In May, Pantzer paid $119.4 million for the 392-unit Town Southern apartment complex in Royal Palm Beach and renamed the property The Point at Wellington. In less than a year, Pantzer has added 528 apartments in Palm Beach County to its portfolio of more than 10,000 units along the East Coast.
Overall, Pantzer owns 36 multifamily properties from Massachusetts to Florida, including four in Palm Beach County and one in Miami-Dade County, according to the firm’s website. Pantzer buys apartment properties through its Panco Strategic Real Estate Funds, the website states.
Pantzer joins a handful of heavy hitting multifamily investors that closed big-ticket deals across South Florida in the past week. Chicago-based Waterton paid $80 million for a 216-unit garden-style community in Boynton Beach; Atlanta-based The Carroll Organization paid $49.4 million for an 188-unit apartment complex in Oakland Park; Boston-based Berkshire Residential Investments paid $202.5 million for a 390-unit project in Jupiter; and Dallas-based S2 Capital paid $127 million for a 359-unit apartment complex near Jupiter.
