Atlanta, Ga./Clermont, Fla. (March 2021) – PENLER, an Atlanta-based multifamily real estate operating platform, is building a 288-unit luxury apartment community in Clermont, an affluent west Orlando suburb.

It’s also the area’s first multifamily community with direct access to the South Lake Trail. This development is momentous for PENLER in that it marks our sixth new market since we founded the firm two years ago.”

Atlanta/Sarasota, Fla. (September 2020) – Multifamily real estate investment platform PENLER has acquired Tradition at Palm Aire, a 248-unit apartment community in Sarasota, Florida. The firm will soon begin a $5 million renovation program including a comprehensive overhaul of the clubhouse and fitness center, landscape improvements, new exterior paint and significant upgrades to all of the apartment unit interiors.

“This asset fits perfectly with our strategy of acquiring high-quality properties that are undervalued due to temporary market conditions and can be enhanced through customized repositioning strategies,” said PENLER Managing Partner Graham Carpenter.

The community offers proximity to I-75, a striking setting within the Palm Aire Country Club community and offers a resort–like feeling of seclusion. The Class A apartment community is located on University Parkway, blocks from a new Whole Foods Market and the recently redeveloped Mall at University Town Center (UTC). Tradition also offers easy access to the downtown business district and its galleries, theaters, restaurants and shops.
