CBRE Global Investors Acquires 350-Unit Multifamily Property in Charlotte, N.C.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – December 4, 2019 – A fund sponsored by CBRE Global Investors has acquired The Penrose, a 350-unit multifamily property located in the South End neighborhood of Charlotte, N.C. The acquisition of the property, which is located at 327 West Tremont Ave., is aligned with the fund’s strategy of investing in mid-rise apartment communities in target multifamily markets across the United States.

The Penrose spans 270,874 square feet and includes a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Residents at The Penrose, which is 90 percent leased, have access to an expansive amenity collection that includes a resort-style pool, outdoor communal kitchens, a 24-hour athletic club, a pet spa, an art studio, two resident lounges and an entertainment center.

The Penrose is less than a 10-minute drive from downtown Charlotte and 15-minute drive to Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The neighborhood offers residents a variety of dining, retail and entertainment options.

“The Penrose is a new property that is helping to fill the demand for high-end apartment rentals in the increasingly popular South End neighborhood. As Charlotte continues to benefit from robust employment growth, we expect that this demand will only increase,” said Kim Hourihan, a portfolio manager for CBRE Global Investors. “We expect proximity to downtown Charlotte and to the region’s top employers will help to draw a variety of renters to The Penrose, which will feature A&B Living, CBRE Global Investors’ holistic philosophy of care and connection, community-building and amenities that enhances the tenant experience.”
