ATLANTA, GA - JMG Realty, Inc. today announced the acquisition of Florida Club at Deerwood Apartments; a 180 unit apartment community located in Deerwood Park of one of Jacksonville, Florida’s most desirable sub markets, through a joint venture partnership.

Built in 2008, the property was originally developed as for sale condominiums with exceptional community and apartment home amenities including a resort-style swimming pool, pergola with outdoor gas grill, spacious detached garages, multimedia room with theatre-style seating, expansive clubhouse kitchen, fully-equipped fitness center and an idyllic central park with shaded walking paths, picnic areas and a dog park. All homes were originally designed with nine foot ceilings, black appliances, ceramic tile flooring, custom cabinetry, walk-in closets, contemporary lighting fixtures and private patios and balconies.

The unit interiors of Florida Club at Deerwood offer strong core features, which will be further enhanced through an interior renovation program to elevate the Property’s position in the submarket. The addition of cutting edge finishes such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes and wood flooring will allow the property to directly compete with newer product in the surrounding market area. Exteriors of the buildings and the common areas have also been upgraded.

Located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the Jacksonville area, Deerwood Park, residents enjoy a multitude of shopping, dining, and recreation options just outside their door. Florida Club at Deerwood is less than three miles from the vibrant St. Johns Town Center and The Markets at Town Center, which together offer 1.7 million square feet and over 180 stores and restaurants. Featuring several high-end retailers, Town Center continues to establish record high sales volume, and many of its top-tier tenants have chosen this locale as their only position within Jacksonville.

Adding to the desirability of its location, the property is in the heart of the Southside office market, Jacksonville’s largest suburban employment hub. With over 72,000 employees, Deerwood Park’s employment base is more than double the size of the metro’s second largest suburban employment hub. Spread proportionately amongst thirteen separate business sectors, the submarket’s strong economic foundation is further cemented through a diverse set of employers including four Fortune 500 and four Fortune 1000 companies. Residents are also within an easy 25 minute commute to downtown Jacksonville, Jacksonville NAS, Mayport Naval Station, Jacksonville International Airport and the beautiful Atlantic beaches.

 ATLANTA, GA - The City of Atlanta closed on a mixed-use development (apartments & retail) and retained Atlanta-based JMG Realty Inc. to manage the property.

City Plaza was built in 1996, originally as housing for the GA State Patrol during the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics and contains 164 residential units as well as six individual retail "bays". Planned uses for these bays include a pharmacy and a fitness & wellness center conveniently located for city employees working at Atlanta City Hall nearby.

"Acquiring the City Plaza complex provides us with an important opportunity to enhance services for city residents," Mayor Kasim Reed said. "I am excited about this opportunity and believe residents and employees will benefit from this acquisition for years to come."

Prior to the transition to new ownership, JMG spearheaded a major renovation project totally over $1.5 million to date. Upgrades include:

Overhaul of all interior hallways in both buildings which consisted of drop ceiling removal, carpet removal and replaced with a modern sealed cement flooring, updated lighting and loft style open ceilings.

Units upgraded with stainless appliances, new wood inspired laminate flooring, brushed nickel lighting fixtures, refaced cabinets, tiled shower surrounds and full color change to reflect a more modern feel.

Amenities were 100% overhauled and modernized with fresh electronics & aesthetics consistent with the contemporary feel of the property.

"We look forward to working with the City of Atlanta to continue providing high quality housing and retail opportunities in the heart of the city." JMG Executive Vice President Jean Woodworth said.

    JMG Realty, Inc. today announced the acquisition of Century Hermann Park Apartments; a 224 unit apartment community located in The Texas Medical Center of Houston, TX through a joint venture partnership.

    Built in 2003, Century Hermann Park is a podium mid-rise apartment community featuring four residential levels above two stories of garage parking. The property’s 224 units were originally completed with white appliances, light cabinets, Formica countertops, plastic blinds and a standard lighting and fixture package.

     Recently, the property implemented a value-add program that included stainless steel appliances, 2” blinds, brushed nickel hardware, plank flooring, updated track lighting, and granite countertops. To date, 94 units have been upgraded and are capturing rents premiums between $115 and $225 per month, depending on floorplan.

     Further enhancing the value-add opportunity is the property’s core, infill location with affluent demographics and strong submarket fundamentals. Average household income within a one-mile radius of Century Hermann Park is $101,553, and surrounding neighborhoods such as Riverside Terrace, Museum District, and West University feature home values exceeding $8M. Century Hermann Park’s proximity to Highway 288 connects residents to both Downtown Houston as well as other major thoroughfares including Interstate 59, Highway 610, and Interstate 45. Additionally, the property has the unique advantage of being located in the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world.

    Located near the Texas Medical Center, well known for its world-class health care facilities, the Texas Medical Center is both a major employer and a local amenity. The largest medical center in the world, it encompasses 1,345 acres and 48.5 million square feet of commercial space. The Texas Medical Center is consisted of 435 member institutions which host 106,000 employees, 50,000 students, and 21 hospitals. With over five million patients visiting the Medical Center each year, the center is staffed with over 4,000 physicians and 11,000 registered nurses. In addition to patient care, the Texas Medical Center is also focused on education and research, featuring over 11 educational institutions and two on-site Nobel Laureates. As the eighth largest business district in the country, it is one of the most stable, high income areas in the United States. The Texas Medical Center has had a $4.6 billion direct and an $11.5 billion indirect impact on Houston’s economy. Currently undergoing a $7 billion expansion, the Medical Center will only continue to play a pivotal role in Houston’s economy. Some notable hospitals of the Texas Medical Center include:
 
•    Shriner’s Hospital for Children - An orthopedic research and teaching hospital, this 40-bed facility is equipped to provide care for virtually all pediatric orthopedic problems.
•    Texas Children’s Hospital - Affiliated with the Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s is the nation’s largest freestanding hospital and is ranked sixth in the country for pediatric care. Already one of the largest pediatric hospitals in the United States, Texas Children’s is currently planning to start a $506 million expansion.
•    University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center - This facility has ranked the nation’s number one cancer center in the country six times in the past eight years, and has been one of the top two hospitals for cancer care for 20 years according to US News & World Report rankings.

In keeping with the re-positioning strategy, the property will be re-branded as Verdir at Hermann Park.

JMG REALTY, INC. and EMPIRE SQUARE GROUP purchase Automatic Lofts, a 482 bed student housing building in Chicago

JMG Realty, Inc. today announced the acquisition of the 482 bed Automatic Lofts apartment building in Chicago's West Loop area, by a joint venture of Empire Square Group and JMG Realty, Inc.

Read More

Automatic Lofts was redeveloped in 2006 into a 482 bed student community with 5800 square feet of street level retail space and a heated parking garage. Located only steps away from the University of Illinois at Chicago campus, Automatic Lofts is also just steps away from the CTA Blue line (UIC-Halsted station). This makes it an excellent living option for students at many colleges in the downtown area including Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago, Columbia, Robert Morris, and DePaul Universities. Automatic Lofts offers residents the exciting West Loop lifestyle together with easy access to their college and the many vibrant surrounding neighborhoods of Chicago.

Built in 1910 as a factory, the structure housed the Automatic Electric Company and produced the innovative Strowger electromagnetic telephone switch. This automated technology replaced switchboard operators by the late 1950's. According to Jean Woodworth, Executive VP and Partner, JMG plans to continue the tradition of providing advanced communications technology in this historic building by implementing Gigabit Internet and Wi-Fi to every unit, a much sought after amenity in student housing.

Automatic Lofts is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Original building components include timber columns, high ceilings and exposed brick walls. Units feature Herman Miller furnishings. JMG and Empire Square will be enhancing the unique appeal of this historic property with several enhancements to the common areas and the building services over the coming months.
