NAPLES, Fla., December 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Halstatt Real Estate Partners, a real estate private equity firm, today announced the sale of Gran Bay Apartment Homes at Flagler Center, a 308-unit apartment community, located in Jacksonville, Florida.

Flagler Center is supported by over 2.4 million sq. ft. of commercial space including business, financial, and medical services and is home to employers such as Baptist Health and Citicorp. Halstatt purchased the property in September 2017 and implemented a value enhancement and improvement plan that substantially increased rental rates and occupancy.

"The Jacksonville MSA is one of the fastest growing metros in Florida. Operational performance at Gran Bay significantly benefitted from the region’s outsized population and employment growth and we are very pleased with the outcome this disposition has yielded for our investors."
