Lawrenceville, Ga. (March 6, 2020) – 29th Street Capital (29SC), a privately-held real estate operator, has acquired Knollwood Park Apartment Homes, a 1998 vintage, 142-unit multifamily community located in Lawrenceville, Georgia. 29SC plans to complete full interior renovations, upgrade the amenity spaces and modernize the exterior of the property.

“We are excited to be growing our portfolio in  Gwinnett County,” said Javier Bustillo, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions in Atlanta. “The property will benefit from over $240 million of redevelopment and infrastructure investment in downtown Lawrenceville.”

“We are excited to help play a role in the revitalization of Downtown Lawrenceville,” Bustillo added. “Knollwood Park Apartment Homes will offer tenants freshly-renovated units and amenities, but most importantly be within walking distance of downtown and all of its amenities.
