VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. —San Antonio-based real estate service company LYND has acquired an apartment community in Virginia Beach for $43 million. Located at 205 34th St., the 16-story, 266-unit Mayflower Apartments is within a block of the Atlantic Ocean and less than a mile from downtown Virginia Beach. Mike Marshall of Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) represented the seller, Harbor Group International, a Norfolk-based real estate investment and management firm. LYND plans to spend over $3 million on capital improvements to both individual units and common areas, including Amazon package lockers, surfboard lockers and renovations to the fitness center. LYND management has been retained to oversee renovations and manage the building. Henry Stimler of NKF arranged a $33 million acquisition loan for LYND through Hunt Real Estate Capital, represented internally by Marc Suarez. The property has 3,140 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a separate parcel with 11,915 square feet of freestanding retail and on-site and off-site parking. Built in 1950, the last renovations to the building were completed in 2010. The Mayflower currently has studio, one- and two-bedroom units and a penthouse floor. Community amenities include outdoor and indoor pools, a fitness center, restaurant, on-site clothes care center, concierge service and a parking garage.
