Javelin 19 Investments, Ditto Residential, Longford Management Acquire 85-Unit Value-Add Property in Baltimore
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 20, 2017 — Javelin 19 Investments and Six Ten Properties announced today the acquisition of Nottingham South Apartments, an 85-unit, value-add multifamily investment near the Social Security Administration inside the I-695 and I-70 interchange in Baltimore.
Six Ten Principal Dave Illes explained, “The property represented a promising opportunity to acquire existing cash flow at an attractive yield and add value through a modest renovation and modernization program.”
In addition to its convenient location inside the Baltimore beltway off I-70, Nottingham South is situated in the neighborhood of Hunting Ridge, a serene, mature and densely-populated submarket in Baltimore, Maryland comprised of well-maintained homes and gardens and an active community. The $4.25 million property consists of 33 studio units, 40 1BR/1BA units, and 12 2BR/1BA units and will be managed by Longford Management.
“This acquisition is representative of our investment strategy of buying assets that are proximate to transportation corridors, retail amenities and employment centers, and that offer the ability to increase NOI through revenue enhancement programs and prudent expense management. We are actively pursuing other 30 to 100 unit multifamily core-plus and value add acquisitions in the Baltimore-Washington markets,” Six Ten Principal Martin Ditto stated.

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 27, 2013 — Javelin 19 Investments and EdR (NYSE:EDR), a leader in the ownership, development and management of collegiate housing, announced today that they will co-develop a $46.1 million collegiate housing community at Duke University in Durham, N.C., through a joint venture structure.
Javelin 19 of Washington, D.C. will be co-developer and 10% owner. EdR of Memphis, TN, as the 90% owner and managing member of the joint venture, will provide development, construction oversight and management services for the 386-bed community, which is scheduled for a summer 2014 completion.
“We are excited to be involved with Javelin 19 in this development,” said Randy Churchey, EdR president and chief executive officer. “Javelin 19 is a forward-thinking development company with a solid reputation and we are confident that, together, we will have other successes and exciting opportunities in the future.”
The community is designed to appeal to graduate students and upperclassmen whose housing needs are not met on the Duke University campus. Graduate students constitute more than half of the total 2012 enrollment of 14,591 students.
The new community will be within walking distance of recently leased university office and research space where graduate students will be employed or studying. The location is also pedestrian to Durham’s downtown entertainment district, the Durham Bulls baseball park and the recently completed city transportation hub. The occupancy rate for apartments in the Durham sub-market is in the high 90s.
“While a graduate student at Duke, I led several consulting projects focused on the nearby West End community,” said Jill Homan, principal at Javelin 19 Investments. “This highly traveled, yet under resourced corridor between Duke and downtown Durham is an incredibly exciting redevelopment opportunity. I’m proud to join with the EdR team and invest in the city to improve and enhance the quality of life and business appeal of Durham.”
The urban-style, mid-rise development will offer studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments along with upscale amenities — lounge, coffee bar, fitness center, yoga area, cable, Wi-Fi and internet access, outdoor grilling area and swimming pool. An attached garage will provide nearly 400 parking spaces for residents.
Completing the team with EdR and Javelin 19 are lead architect JDavis Architects of Raleigh, N.C., civil engineer John R. McAdams of Durham, N.C. and Clancy & Theys Construction Co. of Wilmington, N.C.
