Renovations planned for garden-style community in prime Chicagoland location
Redwood Capital Group, a vertically integrated multifamily investment manager, today announced it has acquired Hunter’s Glen, a garden-style apartment community in the Aurora–Naperville submarket, one of the most sought-after suburbs in the greater Chicagoland area.
“We are proud that, despite the ongoing pandemic, Redwood has continued to complete portfolio-improving transactions,” said Bob Flannery, chief operating officer and executive vice president of Redwood Capital Group. “This is the second acquisition we have closed within the last 60 days, and we have grown our portfolio and our investor base throughout 2020. Getting a deal done in this environment and doing so with a new capital partner in Heitman is a real achievement.”
In addition, Hunter’s Glen is close to numerous entertainment and retail options. The property is less than two miles from the Fox Valley Mall, a 1.5-million-square-foot enclosed mall with 150 shops, eateries and services. Outdoor attractions like the Phillips Park Zoo and the Morton Arboretum are also nearby. Downtown Naperville, which is less than five miles from Hunter’s Glen, features over 300 businesses and a stunning Riverwalk.
“From a property perspective and a submarket perspective, we believe all the factors are in place for us to drive NOI and deliver a great risk-adjusted return on our investment,” said Bill McDougall, vice president of investments for Redwood Capital Group. “Our research and analysis show this submarket should experience continued population growth, minimal new apartment construction and increased apartment demand for the foreseeable future. Combine these factors with our planned upgrades, and we believe this community will thrive as it provides residents with a true best-in-class living experience.”
