GROTON, Conn., Oct. 15, 2018 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announces the sale of The Ledges Apartment Homes, a 339-unit multifamily property in Groton, Connecticut.
“The asset is extremely well positioned to benefit from the exceptional growth at Electric Boat/General Dynamics and the secondary companies that support the design and construction of Virginia- and Columbia-class submarines,” says Victor Nolletti, senior managing director and lead advisor for the IPA Northeast team. “The transaction highlights IPA’s ability to bring a strong understanding of secondary markets to a broad and diverse investor base.”
Nolletti, assisted by Eric Pentore, IPA first vice president, and Wes Klockner, senior associate with Marcus & Millichap, exclusively represented the seller, B.A.G. Investments Inc., and procured the buyer, Merion Realty Partners.
The property is located near the Thames River in Groton and one of the area’s most active retail corridors, Long Hill Road/U.S. Route 1. The location provides easy access to Interstate 95, Hartford, New Haven, Rhode Island and Boston. The New London Shoreline East train station is less than 10 minutes away. In addition to the Naval Submarine Base, Coast Guard Academy and General Dynamics, the area is home to employers such as Pfizer, PCC Structurals, Doncasters Precision Castings, Proto-Power Corp. and the University of Connecticut.
