SHELTON, CT - Inland Real Estate Acquisitions announced that it negotiated and closed the purchase of Avalon Huntington, a 99-unit townhome-style multifamily property located in Shelton, Connecticut, a suburb approximately 12 miles west of New Haven.

Joe Cosenza, vice chairman of The Inland Real Estate Group and president of Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, LLC, completed the deal, with assistance from Gina LaMantia, managing counsel for Charles J. Benvenuto, P.C., on behalf of an Inland affiliate.

Constructed in 2008, the property is ideally located at 100 Avalon Drive near Route 8 and offers convenient access to Huntington Road and I-95. The property, which will be renamed Huntington Townhomes, consists of seven three- and four-story buildings with 99 total units, featuring 86 townhome-style homes and 13 garden apartments, with 194 total parking spaces. There are nine three-bedroom and four two-bedroom garden apartments, 64 two-bedroom townhomes and 22 three-bedroom townhomes.

Each unit includes gourmet kitchens, walk-in closets, energy-efficient windows, individual alarm systems with monitoring available and full size washers and dryers, while select units feature vaulted ceilings, a patio or balcony, gas fireplaces and separate dining rooms. Huntington Townhomes also features a variety of community amenities including a heated outdoor pool, a picnic area, a clubhouse, a state-of-the-art fitness center and is a dog friendly community.

Additionally, Huntington Townhomes is located adjacent to a park with a walking path and provides residents nearby access to the Housatonic River and local beaches. The property is also positioned near a major retail area that includes a Stop ‘n Shop, a ShopRite and Wal-Mart, and is a 15-minute drive to Westfield Trumbull Mall and 20 minutes to Post Mall.

“Ranked as the most successful city in Connecticut, Shelton serves as a residential community for many employees of nearby Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, Yale University, Sheaffer Pen Corporation and Pitney Bowes,” said Cosenza. “Huntington Townhomes provides the more than 168,000 residents within a five-mile radius with access to top-rated schools and public transportation that offers an easy commute to nearby Stamford and Norwalk. Due to its premier location at the epicenter of major employers, its townhome-style units, direct access garages and high quality community amenities, this property is an excellent example of the types of multifamily acquisitions we continue to seek out.”
