The two sales are in addition to the Hanover Apartments residential community sale that closed earlier in September.

Grove Park was sold to an affiliate of Avalon Bay (NYSE:AVB). The apartment community is located on Clopper Road near the intersection with Quince Orchard Boulevard and within one half mile of I-270. Al Cissel and Scott Melnick of Jones Lang Lasalle managed the sale for the venture. The sales price is undisclosed by agreement of the buyer and seller.

“The sale of Grove Park and Charleston Manor are representative of a core part of FCP’s strategy.” said Alex Marshall, FCP Managing Partner. “FCP repositioned these communities, both of which are located in strong suburban locations, with infrastructure repairs, common area upgrades and in-unit renovations to improve their marketability. These repositioned residences not only allow us to create value for our partners and investors once sold, but also add vibrancy to the broader community.”
