CBRE/NE Multi-Housing Group Sells Arboretum at Burlington on Behalf of AEW Capital Management, LLC

312-unit apartment community sold


BOSTON (Dec. 16, 2013) — CBRE/New England’s Capital Markets team today announced the sale of Arboretum at Burlington, a 312-unit apartment community located in Burlington, Massachusetts. A partnership advised by AEW Capital Management, LLC sold the asset to AvalonBay Communities, LLC for an undisclosed price.


CBRE/NE’s multi-housing experts Simon Butler, Executive Vice President/Partner, and Biria St. John, Executive Vice President/Partner, exclusively represented the seller and procured the buyer.


“We are pleased to have facilitated this transaction on behalf of the seller,” said CBRE/NE’s Butler. “Arboretum at Burlington is located in one of the strongest office submarkets in Boston and, with limited new supply, represents an excellent opportunity for long-term rent growth”.

The property consists of 16 three- and four-story apartment buildings and a single-story clubhouse.
