KETTLER Continues its Expansion in the Southeast

Kettler, one of greater Washington, D.C.’s leading real estate development and property management companies, announced today it has purchased 384 garden apartment units in the Research Triangle and Triad Region of North Carolina in a joint venture with The Stillman Group.

“This acquisition represents our continued focus to grow strategically in new markets specifically in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast,” said Robert C. Kettler, Chairman and CEO of Kettler. “As real estate investors, we strive to find key assets in areas that are thriving and show signs of continued growth and success.”

The acquisition is made up of two apartment communities, Bridges at Chapel Hill with 144 units located in the Town of Carrboro and Waterford Place with 240 units located in North Greensboro. Bridges at Chapel Hill is just minutes from the city center, and is in close proximity to major employers as well as world-class universities. Located directly on Lake Jeanette in Greensboro, Waterford Place apartments is also conveniently located to a number of large employment centers such as UPS, Honda Aircraft and FedEx.

Kettler plans to enhance operations at both communities through interior and exterior unit and amenity area upgrades. Previously managed by Fairfield, both properties will now be managed by Kettler Management.

“We’ve capitalized on a great investment opportunity in the attractive submarkets of Chapel Hill and Greensboro,” said Asheel Shah, President of Multifamily Development at Kettler. “These areas have and will continue to attract a resident base that is looking for quality housing options with access to a great education system, employment and entertainment options.”

Abbott Stillman added, "I am delighted by the opportunity to extend our strategic partnership with Kettler and successfully pursue properties in what we view as really attractive locations and in the value add asset class.”

In the past 10 months, Kettler began expanding into high-growth areas of the southeast seizing opportunities to add value-add opportunities to its portfolio. In addition to the acquisitions in the Triad Region and the Research Triangle, Kettler has added nearly 700 apartment units in South Carolina to its expanding multifamily portfolio.
