“FCP is pleased with the success of the renovations completed at York Ridge,” said FCP Vice President, Alex Cathcart. “We’re delighted that our partnership with High Real Estate Group resulted in a vastly improved community and a successful investment.”
“High is committed to serving our residents with the best quality home possible,” said Brad Mowbray, Senior Vice President & Managing Director – Residential Division, High Real Estate Group. “We maintain award-winning communities and our team delivers outstanding customer service daily. We recognize and thank FCP for partnering with us in this outstanding community.”
“We are excited to add York Ridge to our growing portfolio, as we continue to actively purchase value-add opportunities in major markets,” said Abe Spitz, Chief Operating Officer at White Eagle Property Group. “We will be investing significant capital by upgrading the interiors and enhancing the common area amenity spaces to give our residents the best living experience. York Ridge will be rebranded as the Avenues at Steele Creek as we reposition the asset.”
“York Ridge is a great opportunity for White Eagle to capitalize on Charlotte’s booming expansion,” added White Eagle Property Group Chairman and CEO, Jeff Weiskopf.
Jordan McCarley, Vice Chair of Cushman & Wakefield noted, “Southwest Charlotte is a thriving submarket with outstanding job growth and attractive fundamentals.” McCarley continued, “York Ridge is well positioned to benefit from the area’s momentum and continued demand for communities in quality suburban locations.”
