JLL Income Property Trust Invests in Two Premier Apartment Communities in Suburban Boston

July 25, 2018 — Chicago

The Tremont apartment community

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed, daily NAV REIT (NASDAQ: ZIPTAX; ZIPTMX; ZIPIAX; ZIPIMX), today announced it formed a joint venture with Nordblom Company to invest in The Tremont and The Huntington apartment communities in Burlington, Massachusetts, 15 miles northwest of downtown Boston. Nordblom Company, a preeminent New England-based developer of Northwest Park, recently developed these two Class A apartments. Combined, the two communities total 297 units and are located in Northwest Park’s amenity-rich mixed-use development courting Boston’s highly educated millennial workforce.

The Tremont and The Huntington apartment communities align well with JLL Income Property Trust’s apartment strategy, targeting suburban markets with highly rated schools and strong market fundamentals and demographics. Burlington is a 30-minute drive from downtown Boston. It is just off of I-95 and Route 3, providing easy access to “America’s Technology Highway” – the Route 128 corridor that hosts the largest concentration of tech jobs outside of Silicon Valley. The area boasts median household incomes within a 1-mile radius of over $110,000 and median home values within the zip code of over $530,000, making renting an attractive choice. The local high school is equally impressive, receiving an “A” grade from and earning LaSalle Research’s Silver classification.

“Burlington has seen no new apartment construction in ten years, putting these two luxury communities in a class by themselves,” said Allan Swaringen, President and CEO of JLL Income Property Trust. “This investment in one of Boston’s thriving live/work/play neighborhoods brings our aggregate apartment allocation to just over $730 million, with over 2,800 apartment units, representing nearly 30% of our $2.6 billion, 71-property portfolio.” Swaringen added, “We are also thrilled to partner with Nordblom Company, a highly-regarded developer, investor and operator with decades of experience in the Boston market. Our investment philosophies are well-aligned as long-term investors committed to creating exciting and vibrant mixed-use communities.”

At the hub of Northwest Park, these apartments are within walking distance of a Wegmans grocery store, over 20 restaurants, and a variety of other retailers, and are directly adjacent to the Burlington Mall, the second-largest retail center in Massachusetts, featuring more than 185 specialty shops.

The Tremont and the Huntington are highly amenitized, luxury apartments designed to attract a renter-by-choice demographic, and feature hardwood flooring with carpet in bedrooms, quartz countertops with under-mount sinks in both kitchens and bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, soft close drawers, in-unit washer & dryer, and nine-foot ceilings. Community amenities include a tech lounge, community kitchen, pool tables, swimming pool, fitness center, yoga room, grilling patio, designated pet areas and covered parking.
