Federal Capital Partners (FCP) today announced its $33.6 million acquisition of Montpelier Crossing, a 386 unit apartment and townhome complex in Laurel, Maryland in the Washington, DC suburbs. The community, which features 2-story townhomes and 3 and 4 story garden apartments, is located at 9689 Muirkirk Road within a half mile of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and within a few miles of Fort Meade.
“Montpelier Crossing has great visibility from, and access to, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and is a short commute to Fort Meade, with a growing employee base of 40,000 people,” said FCP Managing Partner, Alex Marshall.
Jason Bonderenko, an FCP Vice President, commented on the company’s unique fit for this transaction, saying, “FCP was able to provide the quality of sponsorship and the certainty of closing needed to ensure loan assumption approval at a time when loan assumptions encounter very close scrutiny.”
FCP is planning a $5 million+ renovation program to improve common areas and address deferred maintenance items. Montpelier Crossing is surrounded by more than 3 millions square feet of retail offerings and the immediate area is expected to benefit from approximately 22,500 new jobs generated by BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure).
FCP extends its appreciation to CB Richard Ellis for brokering the transaction.
