JLL Capital Markets Arranges Acquisition Financing for Newly Constructed 295-Unit Aventon Park West in Savannah, Georgia

CHICAGO, IL - JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged acquisition financing for Aventon Park West, a newly constructed, 295-unit, garden-style multi-housing community adjacent to the Pooler submarket of northwestern Savannah, Georgia.

JLL worked on behalf of a private individual to secure the seven-year, fixed-rate loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital, LLC, a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender.

Aventon Park West, which was built in 2020, comprises one-, two- and three-bedroom units with an average unit size of 962 square feet. The apartments feature kitchen islands, keyless entry with mobile activation, smart thermostats, washer and dryer, walk-in showers, soaking tubs, large walk-in closets, USB outlets, private balconies and patios and a choice of two highspeed internet/video providers. Community amenities include a saltwater pool with private cabanas; covered terrace overlooking pool; outdoor kitchen and pool bar with grilling stations; outdoor lounge with fire pit; hammock garden and gaming lawn; controlled access; electric vehicle charging stations; fitness center; yoga studio; coworking spaces; club lounge with game room with coffee bar; pet spa and two dog parks; children’s playground; and lakeside walking trails.

Located at 2080 Benton Blvd., the property offers quick access to the I-95 and is just 13 miles from downtown Savannah. Nearby are some of Savannah’s largest employers such as Gulfstream Aerospace, Georgia-Pacific, St. Joseph’s/Chandler and the Port of Savannah. Aventon Park West also features easy access to Savannah International Airport, historic Downtown Savannah and adjacent barrier islands/beaches.

The JLL Capital Markets debt team that represented the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Marc Schillinger and Associates Jonah Aelyon and Eric Boucher.

“We ran a marketing process to understand which execution would be best between insurance companies, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and, this time, Freddie Mac knocked the ball out of the park,” Schillinger said. “We are very excited that our client was able to purchase this asset with such incredible terms.”
