The joint venture with Insight Property Group and FCP preserves affordable living opportunities in job-rich, metro-accessible Largo. Town Center
(March 29, 2022 – Arlington, VA) AHC Inc. with partners Insight Property Group and Federal Capital Partners (FCP) announce the purchase of the property formerly known as Camden Largo Town Center apartments for $71.9 million in Largo, MD. Forty percent (98 apartments) of the 245-unit community will be preserved as affordable for 15 years. The community at 9701 Summit Circle will be rebranded Haven Largo.
The opportunity was awarded through Prince George’s County’s Right of First Refusal (ROFR) program, which gives Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) the authority to purchase properties to expand the availability of affordable rental housing in the County.
The commitment ensures that 10% of the property (25 units) are available to households earning up to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and 30% of the property (73 units) are available to those with incomes at or below 80% AMI.
“AHC is delighted to acquire our first community in Prince George’s County in partnership with the County, Insight Property Group, and FCP,” said Mary Claire Davis, AHC Greater Baltimore Director. “We appreciate the County’s commitment to providing long-term rental affordability in such a prime location and look forward to adding programming and services to further enhance the quality of life for our residents.”
Haven Largo is an attractive, well-located garden apartment community in a tranquil setting in a quickly growing submarket in Prince George’s County, MD. The community is minutes from the Largo Town Center Metro Station and the Capital Beltway. Residents of the spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments have access to major employment centers including the nearby University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center. Apartment amenities include in-unit washers and dryers, vaulted ceilings, kitchen pantries, and rentable garages. The community has a fitness center, swimming pool, grilling areas, and an outdoor gazebo.
“This multifamily apartment community sits in the heart of downtown Largo, a vibrant and growing retail center,” said County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “With the new University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center and the Blue Line Metro Station, downtown Largo is critical for our economic development vision along the Blue Line Corridor. With increasing market demand of rental property, exercising our Right of First Refusal program is not only helping us to protect and expand quality, safe homes that residents of all incomes can afford, but also plays a key role in contributing to the creation and preservation of healthy and inclusive communities where access to opportunity is increased.”
“Insight is thrilled to partner with Prince George’s County, AHC and FCP on this acquisition, where we will be able to create much-needed affordable housing in an exceptional location,” said Tim White, Partner at Insight Property Group.
“FCP is excited to continue investing in our home market with the acquisition of a well-maintained and high performing asset in one of the top submarkets in suburban Maryland,” said FCP’s Scott Reibstein. “As part of our commitment to the preservation of moderately priced apartment communities in the Washington, DC region, we plan to offer resident services and implement affordability requirements to a portion of the units.”
