As the United States’ multifamily housing market continues its steady growth, Atlanta-based CARROLL announced two more strategic property acquisitions. Led by founder and CEO M Patrick Carroll, the leading real estate investment and management firm completed the purchase of suburban Fort Lauderdale and Denver multifamily communities.
Executed in November 2021, the acquisitions added 580 units to CARROLL’s nationwide multifamily housing portfolio. In addition, the Firm continues to expand its multifamily property management capabilities.
After extended nationwide market analysis, CARROLL identified two metropolitan-area multifamily communities that presented good investment potential. Both garden-style developments offer easy access to premier employment hubs along with desirable retail and/or entertainment venues.
CARROLL’s institutional fund vehicle, Carroll Multifamily Venture VI, LP, funded the $140+ million purchase. This transaction brings the Company’s cumulative transaction volume to $16 billion.
The Firm’s Construction Management Team will renovate both properties’ interiors and common areas. When completed, the assets will carry CARROLL’s upscale ARIUM brand, a proven market leader that continues to drive resident satisfaction.
Located in suburban Fort Lauderdale, CARROLL’s ARIUM Coconut Creek property (formerly Aqua Villa) contains 280 units. The purchase expands CARROLL’s Florida portfolio to over 9,000 units.
ARIUM Coconut Creek residents have easy access to south Florida employment hubs from Fort Lauderdale to the Boca Raton area. In addition, Broward County’s upscale retail and entertainment venues are within easy reach.
CARROLL’s South Florida investments take place in a business-friendly economic climate. With no state income tax, and growth-oriented government policies, companies from across the United States are contributing to the region’s impressive population and business growth.
The suburban ARIUM West 84th community (formerly Lodge on 84th) contains 300 units. Residents of this Federal Heights development can use two convenient highways to access major employment hubs. Entertainment venues are also within easy driving distance.
The suburban Denver market continues to show impressive occupancy figures and corresponding rent growth. In addition, this expanding sector has demonstrated strong resiliency during COVID-19 pandemic challenges.
The ARIUM West 84th community is CARROLL’s second active Denver-area acquisition. In August 2021, the Firm acquired two Las Vegas communities, substantially increasing its West Coast presence. CARROLL continues to evaluate investment opportunities in this rapidly growing region.
CARROLL’s Founder and CEO, M Patrick Carroll, states that both multifamily communities meet the Company’s stringent investment criteria. “While located in different parts of the country, both assets were attractive to CARROLL due to their demand fundamentals and proven value-add upside.
“Additionally, both communities are located in areas that are experiencing tremendous population growth coupled with high barriers to entry and very limited new construction,” he explains.
Throughout 2021, M Patrick Carroll has orchestrated CARROLL’s execution of 48 strategic transactions. The Firm completed 18 acquisitions while executing 30 dispositions, all in accordance with CARROLL’s investment goals. Collectively, the 2021 transactions have totaled $4.1 billion.

During 2021 Q3, CARROLL entered into a real estate investment partnership with GFH Financial Group. This Bahrain-based firm bought two well-located Las Vegas multifamily communities for $200 million total. CARROLL’s entry into this premier secondary market is in concert with its long-term investment strategy.
In 2021 Q2, CARROLL completed the disposition of two Atlanta-area apartment communities. The Firm realized a desirable return on its investment following the sale of its ARIUM Dunwoody and ARIUM Station 29 assets.
