Stirling Communities II, LLC, an entity of investors led by Stirling Properties, acquired Ansley Place Apartments in Houma, Louisiana.
Ansley Place is a 246-unit “Class-A”, luxury garden-style apartment community located at 100 Ansley Place Court in Houma.
Built in 2008, the Property encompasses thirteen (13) two- and three-story apartment buildings, one (1) single-story leasing office, and four (4) single-story garage buildings on 21 acres of land. The deal closed on April 1, and involved the assumption of an existing HUD 223(f) loan on the property.
“We believe the frenzied activity at Port Fourchon resulting from the return of Gulf exploration, significant expansion projects currently underway at several key service firms in the Houma area, the fully booked pipelines at the shipyards of Edison Chouest and Bollinger, and the various coastal restoration projects either underway or planned, will lead to a substantial increase in the population and employment base of the Houma area over the next five years. With its excellent location, superior floor plans, and premier status in the market, Ansley Place offers our investors a high quality asset located directly in the path of Houma’s growing economy. ,” said Justin Landry, head of Multi-Family Asset Management for Stirling Properties.
“Multi-family is an asset class that Stirling Properties has grown very bullish on in recent years based upon the demographic and economic trends in the nation,” stated Marty Mayer, President and CEO of Stirling Properties. “With the addition of Ansley Place Stirling Investors’ portfolio has grown to more than1,000 units, a significant milestone considering three years ago they did not own a single unit.”
BH Management Services, based in Des Moines, Iowa, runs the day to day activities of the property as is the case with all of Stirling’s 1,042 units.
Stirling has been on the move lately, opening the Fremaux Town Center in Slidell, developing the Magnolia Marketplace, and increasing revenues to $12.5 million in 2013.
