SARASOTA, Fla., July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insula Companies, a Sarasota-based firm specializing in apartment community acquisition and revitalization on behalf of investors, today announces its purchase of Arrow Ridge, a 320-unit apartment complex in Kissimmee, Florida. The $49 million property sale closed July 2.

“We are excited to acquire another quality rental community in Central Florida that is in need of a full renovation,” said Fred Cochran, managing partner at Insula Companies. “With land and construction costs high and a tight labor market, affordable workforce housing cannot be built new, so renovating and upgrading existing communities is critical to a healthy housing market.”

The firm plans to begin its $2.6 million renovation of the 98-percent-occupied complex, also changing the name from Arrow Ridge Apartments to Ridge @ 4100. The revamping will include the building exterior, property amenities and unit upgrades. These renovations will further separate the complex from others in the area, since it is one of only a few that offers four-bedroom, three-bathroom units.

“This renovation is set to improve the quality of life for all current and future residents, along with bringing a sense of positive transformation to the Kissimmee area at large,” said Jeff Talbot, principal at Insula Companies. “Multifamily communities are diverse in needs, wants and interests – so, we are looking forward to improving living conditions and giving residents a space they can happily call home.”

Insula Companies, founded in 2009, is committed to enriching lives by transforming communities. The firm operates 17 communities, including two others located within a five-mile radius of the newly purchased complex.
