Cocke Finkelstein Inc (CFI) adds Remington at Ponte Vedra Lakes To Its Growing Portfolio

$35.35 million deal to be managed by affiliate CFLane

ATLANTA (October 29, 2014) — Cocke Finkelstein Inc. (CFI), a full-service multifamily investment firm, has acquired Remington at Ponte Vedra Lakes, a 344-unit, garden-style apartment community in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, for $35.35 million.

CFLane, the apartment management subsidiary of CFI, will manage the community, which was 96 percent leased when the transaction closed last Friday.

Remington at Ponte Vedra Lakes was built in 1986 and sits on more than 28 lake-dappled acres; it offers one- and two-bedroom floorplans. Amenities include varied recreational facilities including a racquetball court, full fitness center, kids’ playground and two year-round outdoor swimming pools; a car-care center; dog parks and numerous bridges, gazebos and lakeside vistas designed for the exclusive enjoyment of Remington’s residents. The community is located within a three-minute drive of public beach access and is nearby such amenities as TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour's prestigious The Players Championship.

A multimillion-dollar renovation planned for the community will commence immediately and will include major enhancements and modernization to both exterior and interiors, as well and new and expanded amenities throughout the site.

Remington is the 40th Florida community in the growing management portfolio of CFLane, making the Sunshine State the third-largest, in terms of both number of communities and units managed.

“Remington at Ponte Vedra Beach is an outstanding addition to our portfolio, and reinforces our commitment to seeking opportunities to both own and manage assets in the state of Florida, ” said Byron Cocke, CEO of CFI and CFLane. “This is a rare opportunity when you consider the amazing location to both the beach and Jacksonville’s bustling corporate centers, as well as the limited amount of garden-style rentals in Ponte Vedra Beach.”
