Ashcroft Capital Acquires Elliot Cocoplum

Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, today announced the acquisition of Elliot Cocoplum, a garden-style community located midway between Boca Raton and Fort LauderdaleBirchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital’s in-house property management company and construction affiliate, has assumed management of the community and will oversee its upcoming improvements. The acquisition marks Ashcroft’s entry into the South Florida market.

Elliot Cocoplum (formerly Advenir at Cocoplum), which features 360 apartment homes and townhomes, marks Ashcroft’s 10th apartment community within Florida. The community was acquired with equity from Ashcroft and affiliates in a partnership with Peaceable Street Capital.

“The Fort Lauderdale metro is one of the most popular destinations for relocation in the nation, as residents continue to migrate from several pockets of the U.S.,” said Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. “The metro has experienced a population growth of 13% since 2010, which bodes well for the long-term health of the regional apartment market. While new construction in the area has focused on high-density product, we believe that considerable demand still exists for low-density, garden-style products such as Elliot Cocoplum. We’re confident the quiet, suburban environment—along with our upgrades and our commitment to improving the quality of our residents’ lives—will make the community a top-of-market option.”

Originally built in 1986 and situated at 4142 Cocoplum Circle, Elliot Cocoplum offers one-, two- and three-bedroom homes ranging as large as 1,495 square feet, with townhomes accounting for nearly 50% of the units. Existing amenities include two swimming pools, a resident clubhouse and business center, fitness center, outdoor kitchen and a dog park.

Ashcroft’s renovation efforts will include a comprehensive update and modernization of the amenity spaces, improved curb appeal, updated landscaping and signage, and the implementation of electric vehicle charging stations. In-home improvements will include the additions of stainless-steel appliances, tile backsplashes, vinyl-plank flooring, upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures, a smart home technology package, matte black hardware and private yards for select ground-floor units. Additionally, hard-surface countertops will be implemented in select homes.

“Because of its strong history of institutional ownership, the property has received regular capital improvements since its inception and was delivered in superb condition,” said David Deitz, president of Birchstone Residential. “That said, we believe we can further modernize the community and deliver outstanding customer service to provide an even more attractive option to discerning renters. We look forward to joining the submarket and offering a best-in-class experience.”

In addition to Florida, Ashcroft owns communities throughout TexasGeorgia and North Carolina. The company is actively pursuing additional markets in the Sun Belt.
