06 February 2019
River’s Edge Apartments sold for $52,632 per unit, or $59.29 per square foot.

Franklin Street has arranged the $12 million sale of River’s Edge Apartments, a 228-unit rental community located at 7001 Tara Boulevard in the Jonesboro submarket of Atlanta.

Jake Reid and Roger Schoerner of Franklin Street’s Atlanta multifamily investment sales team represented Missouri-based RBG Properties, LLC, a private equity investment group, in the transaction. Tusk Equity Partners, LLC, a local operator led by Moshie Horn, acquired the property for $52,632 per unit.

“Multifamily investors are looking to markets like Jonesboro that have recently witnessed some of the highest rent growth in the metro Atlanta market,” said Reid, senior director at Franklin Street.  “The purchase price is in line with a trend of rising sales prices for Class C apartments in Clayton County.”

Jonesboro is strategically located near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with easy access to the city’s crucial transportation artery, Interstate 75.  Built in 1970, River’s Edge is positioned within 15 minutes of over 400,000 jobs mostly driven by Hartsfield Jackson Airport and the South Atlanta International Industrial Corridor, the sixth largest in the nation.  The metro Atlanta area is also home to a booming entertainment industry, which ranks as a top three film hub along with New York and Los Angeles.
