Alex. Brown Realty JV Acquires Student Housing Project in Bloomington, Indiana

BLOOMINGTON, IND. — Alex. Brown Realty Inc. (ABR) and Asset Campus Housing have acquired The Fields, a student housing project near the main campus of Indiana University in Bloomington. ABR Chesapeake Fund V, a value-add real estate fund sponsored by ABR, invested $11.7 million in the joint venture. The acquisition was financed with a first mortgage loan from Texas Capital Bank N.A. Built as a conventional apartment community between 1997 and 2001, the property was recently converted to a 537-bed student housing community by the prior owner and includes two pools, two 24-hour fitness centers, a business and media center, a 10-acre park and a clubhouse. At closing, The Fields was 98 percent leased for the 2016-2017 school year. The joint venture plans to complete $3.4 million of value-add improvements to cure deferred maintenance, upgrade select unit interiors and refresh the property’s curb appeal.
