American Landmark Nabs $76M Loan for 2 Atlanta-Area Apartment Buildings


Newmark (NMRK) has provided just over $76 million in agency debt to American Landmark Apartments (ALA) to help fund the firm’s acquisition of two apartment complexes in Marietta, Ga., Commercial Observer has learned. 

The Freddie Mac (FMCC)-backed, floating-rate financing facilitated ALA’s purchase of The Knolls and The Crossings in Marietta, a suburb situated north of Atlanta, from TerraCap Management. The two properties will be renamed The Everette at East Cobb and The Franklin at East Cobb, respectively, and ALA will undertake a value-add program on both assets.
