Bascom Group Wraps Up the Year, Acquiring a 320-Unit Multifamily Acquisition in Florida
The Bascom Group, LLC ("Bascom") has acquired a 320-unit apartment community within the Orlando MSA in Florida. The property, Enclave at Lake Ellenor ("Enclave"), was acquired for $68,500,000 or $214,063 per unit through a partnership with East Hill Capital's Duff Bedrosian and Leste Group, a Miami based investment manager. Enclave is the second property acquired by Bascom in partnership with East Hill Capital and Leste Group. Starwood Property Trust provided the debt financing for the acquisition and was arranged by Charles Foschini, Christopher Apone, Shannon Wilson, and Scott Wadler of Berkadia. SD Cap will provide renovation management and Cushman and Wakefield will provide the property management.

Enclave at Lake Ellenor was a unique opportunity to acquire a centrally located, ultra-low-density property with significant unrealized renovation potential in the rapidly growing Orlando market. Enclave is perfectly positioned within reach of business hubs, world-class attractions, and educational centers. Orlando benefits from a diverse and well-educated workforce, business-friendly government, and competitive tax climate, making the city an ideal location for businesses."

Bascom's Senior Vice President & Principal, Jim Singleton.

Enclave at Lake Ellenor is located in Orlando, an area experiencing substantial growth due to Florida's rapidly growing economy. The property's proximity to major roads, such as Interstate 4 and the Florida Turnpike, allows convenient access to retail, entertainment, dining, and major employment centers throughout the Orlando metro. Bascom plans to renovate the units while presenting a significant discount to the price point of new construction. Aside from unit renovations, Bascom will enhance property exteriors and implement amenity additions, while improving operational efficiencies and strengthening their presence in the Florida market. Orlando's affordable, low-density housing, pro-business environment, no state taxes, and tourist rebound since the pandemic have established the MSA as one of the most resilient apartment markets in the country.

Enclave at Lake Ellenor is extremely well-positioned for the team to implement institutional management and execute a strategic renovation plan. Bascom will renovate unit interiors with new appliances, countertops, backsplash, cabinetry work, as well as plumbing and light fixtures. In addition, Bascom will modernize the clubhouse, fitness center, and pool areas. As the Orlando economy continues to rebound from the effects of the pandemic, in-migration trends are projected to persist, making this a great opportunity for us."

Bascom's Senior Vice President of Operations, Tony Ferrell.
