JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Premier Birmingham Apartments

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - JLL Income Property Trust (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX) (NASDAQ: ZIPTMX) (NASDAQ: ZIPIAX) (NASDAQ: ZIPIMX) has acquired Lane Parke Apartments, a 276-unit apartment complex that is 97 percent leased. The apartments are located in the Birmingham suburb of Mountain Brook, Alabama, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country. The purchase price was approximately $73.3 million with an estimated capitalization rate based on purchase price of 5.3 percent.

Mountain Brook is in one of the top 5 percent wealthiest zip codes in the United States, and has been referred to as one of the nation's 'Super ZIPs' by the Washington Post, achieving the highest score possible based on income and education. The area features schools that have been rated #1 in Alabama, and a high school that was rated in the top 100 nationally by Newsweek. Historically, LaSalle Investment Management has found that properties located in areas featuring a combination of top incomes and school districts have outperformed the broader apartment market. These communities tend to have restrictive apartment development policies creating strong barriers to entry.

"The purchase of Lane Parke furthers our apartment acquisition strategy which is geared toward identifying suburban locations within highly rated school districts with attractive demographics and significant barriers to entry for new apartments," said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. "This is our sixth property investment in the apartment sector as we continue to expand our portfolio's exposure to a diverse range of geographic markets and property sectors. The investment brings our aggregate apartment allocation to over $280 million across 1,587 total units."

Lane Parke Apartments features high-quality finishes catering to the local upscale demographics, as well as amenities such as an outdoor terrace, large fitness center, swimming pool with sundeck and lounge area, business center, clubhouse with a demonstration kitchen, outdoor fireplace and grilling station. The property is part of the larger, 28 acre mixed-use development which boasts over 117,000 square feet of high-end retail, including a gourmet grocery store and wine shop, and a Marriott luxury hotel.
