Charleston, S.C. – July 14, 2021 – CBRE Capital Markets’ Debt & Structured Finance has arranged $30.9 million in financing for the acquisition of Aster Place, a 288-unit garden-style apartment community in Charleston, S.C.

Scott Peterson, Bill Chiles and Brian Cruz of CBRE’s San Diego office arranged the loan on behalf of the buyer, San Diego-based Strata Equity Group.

Located at 1840 Carriage Lane, the two-story property features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans averaging 825 square feet. Community amenities include a swimming pool, dog park, fitness center, playground, clubhouse and storage.

Aster Place is situated in proximity to Interstate 256 and Savannah Highway, allowing for immediate access to surrounding employers. The property is less than five miles from downtown Charleston and 12 miles from the Charleston International Airport.
