Highest per-unit sale prices in Central Florida this year
A big-dollar trade of a 300-unit Lake Mary apartment community boasts one of the highest per-unit sale prices in Central Florida this year — and insight into how the market for multifamily properties may be evolving amid larger market forces.
The Helix at Lake Mary at 962 Bentstation Lane sold on Oct. 7 for $125.1 million, or roughly $417,000 per unit — making it one of just a handful of 2022 sales with a per-unit price of more than $400,000. The property has since been renamed IMT Lake Mary; the buyer was IMT Capital, a real estate investment firm based in the Los Angeles suburb of Sherman Oaks, California.
The $60 million complex opened in 2021; it was developed by Orlando-based Parkway Property Investments — a 2022 Golden 100, Central Florida's largest privately held, locally based companies — in a joint venture with New York-based Silverpeak Real Estate Partners.
