Ackerman & Co. has arranged the sale of a 3.40 acre, 13-parcel land assemblage along the northeastern corner of Gay Street and East Glenn Avenue in Downtown Auburn, within walking distance of area landmarks including the Auburn University Campus.
The assemblage, targeted for a six-story, 683-bedroom residential project dubbed The Standard at Auburn, was acquired by Landmark Properties, a real estate development and management firm of high-quality student housing communities. The property is expected to include 16,000 square feet of retail space at its base and offer state-of-the-art amenities including rooftop infinity pool. Ackerman & Co. Senior Vice Presidents Steve Langford and Sean W. Patrick were the exclusive agents for the sellers and acted as the intermediaries in the transaction.
“Given the high barriers of entry, it was a rare opportunity to acquire these parcels and in such close proximity to Auburn University,” said Langford.
Such an endeavor did not come without challenges. The Ackerman & Co. team spent nearly two and a half years assembling the mix of 13 contiguous and non-contiguous land parcels, owned by 10 different families, some of whom lived out of state.
