JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of Vue on MacGregor, a 117-unit / 347-bed student housing community near the University of Houston.

JLL worked on behalf of the seller, Trimont, LLC and procured the buyer, Axonic Properties, LLC.

Built in 2014, the 96.3% occupied property features fully furnished one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom units ranging from 369 square feet to 1,128 square feet. The units include in-unit washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Community amenities include dedicated study rooms, a swimming pool, two fitness centers, a business center, free community-wide Wi-Fi and cable, dog park and prime views of downtown from an upper view deck.

Situated at 4460 South MacGregor Way, Vue on MacGregor is 0.5 miles from the University of Houston campus and a 15-minute drive from Downtown Houston, which features 52 million square feet of office space. The property is ideally set in a quiet enclave near MacGregor Park, a short walk or shuttle ride to classes and only a few miles from the light rail providing access to downtown. Both Griggs Road Shopping Center and The Trail Shopping Plaza are a five-minute drive from the property. Additionally, residents have easy access to the greater Houston metro via nearby Interstate 45.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Teddy Leatherman and Scott Clifton, Director Kevin Kazlow and Analyst Danielle Rice.
