Sam Jazayri and John Tavone of Pembroke Pines purchased the 232-unit Puritan Place apartments for $7.56 million.
The price equated to $32,569 per unit. That figure is lower than the average price per unit for multifamily space ($70,803) in the Tampa Bay area, according to the CoStar Group.
Located a few blocks south of the Hillsborough River, the 11.45-acre development features 32 two-story buildings. It contains eight studio apartments, 120 one-bedroom units, 64 two-bedroom units, 16 two-bedroom/two-bath townhomes and 24 three-bedroom units. Amenities include two swimming pools, four laundry facilities and a stand-alone rental office.
Evan Kristol in Marcus & Millichap's Fort Lauderdale office, and Michael Donaldson and Nicholas Meoli in the firm's Tampa office handled the transaction.
“This deal is a testament to investors' appetites for stabilized buildings in areas with solid demand drivers,” Donaldson says in a press release.
