CHARLOTTE, NC – Tampa, FL based Phillips Development & Realty (PDR) is excited to announce the completion of construction at Phillips Mallard Creek Apartments, Building 5. On May 28, 2019, PDR completed the construction of the $3.6M energy demonstrator 24-unit multi-family building in Charlotte, NC.

During Energy Star’s Design Intent engineering assessments, the project scored 97 out of 100 possible points for efficiencies—a nearly perfect score. Our development team worked closely with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers to carefully select systems, building features, and appliances. These systems will not only reduce energy costs for residents but will also serve as a demonstration for an energy efficient development. “We integrated the most advanced building systems and energy efficiencies into this building that are generally only available in a highly customized home… we hope PDR’s residents see substantial savings in their energy costs and we can apply them to future developments,” stated Hubert Proctor, Senior Superintendent Capstone Building Corp.

 

This unique building features energy efficient Fujitsu ductless HVAC, gas appliances to include Rinnai tankless water heaters, CREE LED lighting, Icynene insulation, and more. “We are excited to compare efficiencies of the new building to the existing 300-unit energy star compliant Mallard Creek development.” commented PDR’s COO, Kevin Johnston.

 

The architect for this project is The Preston Partnership, based in Atlanta, GA. Electrical Engineering was accomplished by St. Petersburg-based Power Designs. Urban Design Partners was the Civil Engineer , and the General Contractor is Capstone Building Corp. of Birmingham, AL. Funding for the project was through Newmark Knight Frank using US Housing and Urban Development’s 241(A) Program.

 

With the addition of Building 5 and the near completion of Villas at Mallard Creek (Phase II), there will be a total of 503 residential units available at this ideal location in  Charlotte.

Blue Water Wash Announces Closing on Memphis, TN Property to Build Woodie’s Wash Shack

Blue Water Wash Announces Closing on Memphis, TN Property to Build Woodie’s Wash Shack

  • Blue Water Wash purchased property at 3294 Poplar Avenue on May 20, 2019
  • The existing Century Building will be torn down to house the new Woodie’s Wash Shack
  • Woodie’s Wash Shack is a vintage surf-themed express car wash experience with proposed locations throughout the Southeast

 

Memphis, TN— On May 20, 2019, Tampa based Blue Water Wash (BWW) is excited to announce that they have closed on a property at 3294 Poplar Avenue in Memphis, TN. This site will be the future home of Woodie’s Wash Shack, an express wash tunnel and car wash experience featuring free vacuum and onsite attendants. Monthly unlimited wash packages will be available for purchase, giving customers freedom and flexibility at this vintage surf-themed car wash.

 

BWW Development Partner, Glen Stygar Managing Director, Donald Phillips worked extensively with Barry Maynard and Frank Dyer III of Loeb Realty Group (Memphis, TN) on this purchase. Rich’s Car Wash (Mobile, AL) added valuable research and industry expertise throughout the purchase.

 

Woodie’s Wash Shack is a proposed .88-acre facility that will be built from the ground-up. The existing Century Building will be torn down to make way for Woodie’s Wash Shack. BWW has chosen this location in Memphis as a viable market to introduce our express wash platforms. 3294 Poplar Avenue is located in a desirable Memphis corridor with approximately 30,000 cars passing by daily. This area of Memphis is currently underserved in the express wash market.

 

Blue Water Wash did need a minor zoning exception to build at 3294 Poplar Avenue. In order to meet the needs of residential neighbors, the Board of Adjustment approved the car wash with the condition that BWW would provide a business buffer via a pocket part and a shadow-box fence. MBH Architect has been tasked with developing the plans for the new facility along with Civil Engineering from ETI Corporation.

 

Ground breaking and construction is expected to commence by September 2019. The project is slated for completion during the first quarter of 2020. BWW is expecting to delivery multiple Woodie’s Wash Shack locations throughout the Southeast within the next year. Currently there are more than 15 sites in predevelopment, including other potential Memphis locations.

Phillips Development & Realty Announces Sale of 3400 Selwyn multi-family

August 1, 2018- Phillips Development & Realty (PDR) is excited to announce the sale of 3400 Selwyn in Charlotte, NC. This 129-unit multi-family apartment complex was built in 1972. It sits on 8 acres total and is located at 100 Matador Lane. 3400 Selwyn is located in the prominent community of Myers Park in close proximity to Queens College and features studio and one bedroom apartments.

 

The purchaser is Covenant Capital Group, LLC, a Nashville-based value-add real estate investment manager which focuses on acquiring apartment communities in high-growth southeastern and mid-Atlantic markets.

The transaction between Phillips Selwyn and Covenant Capital Group, LLC was closed on July 27, 2018 for $14.8M.

PDR acquired 3400 Selwyn in June 2007 and completed numerous renovations in the 11 years PDR owned and operated the apartment community. According to Donald Phillips, Managing Director of Phillips Development & Realty, “This has been among the best and most consistent properties we have owned, and it’s rewarding to see the property slated for extensive renovations.”

 

Brian Ford, A.J. Klenk, Jad Richa, and Ron Corrao of Capstone Apartment Partners recently brokered the sale of 3400 Selwyn. According to managing partner, Brian Ford, “The interest in and competition for 3400 Selwyn was notably intense, with Capstone producing record numbers of highly qualified offers and tours during our marketing period. This asset is an ideal fit for many different investor types, given the short and long-term value-add opportunities, timeless location, and future development potential on the adjoining 2.4 acres. We continue to see demand far outpace the supply of well-located value-add investment opportunities across the Carolinas, and see no immediate end in sight.”
