JBM Sells Longitude 81 Apartments in Estero, Florida
JBM® Institutional Multifamily Advisors is pleased to announce the sale of Longitude 81 apartments located in Estero, Florida. This 260-unit, core-plus property was built in 2016 and sits on 17.95 acres +/- offering a low-density site plan of just 14.48 units per acre. JBM® exclusively listed the deal for Passco Companies, LLC and sold the asset in June 2023 to ECI Group.
The community will be re-branded as Waterline Estero.
"I want to congratulate both the buyer and seller on a successful transaction. Getting deals closed in the current environment can be trying for some, but it was a pleasure to broker this deal on behalf of two first class groups on each side. This marks the 2nd time JBM® has sold this asset which goes to showcase our tremendous success across the Estero/Naples/Fort Myers landscape and Southwest Florida as a whole. I also want to give a special shoutout to Passco, with whom JBM® has completed over $449MM in transaction volume and with more to come," said JBM® Chairman & CEO, Jamie May.
