RMR Residential Sells South Florida Property, The Marin by ARIUM

RMR Residential kicks off Q2 with the disposition of the 223-unit Fort Lauderdale property.


RMR Residential has executed the sale of South Florida property – The Marin by ARIUM. Previously known as Grove East in Plantation, The Marin by ARIUM is a leading apartment community in suburban Fort Lauderdale.

“The Marin presented an excellent opportunity to expand our South Florida portfolio based on its highly visible and central location with value-add potential” said M. Patrick Carroll, Founder and CEO of RMR Residential. “We were able to acquire the property for an attractive basis at a meaningful discount to replacement cost. We elevated the community through strategic enhancements to amenities and unit interiors, bridging the discount in the property’s rents relative to nearby competitive properties – ultimately creating value for our investors.”

A combination of luxury apartment residences and eclectic urban lifestyle, The Marin by ARIUM includes 223 units and more than 14,000 square feet of retail space. Located less than two miles from I-95, I595, and Florida’s Turnpike, the community offers accessibility to all of South Florida and major employers like American Express, Motorola Solutions, and DHL Express.

RMR Residential owned and operated The Marin by ARIUM for nearly four years. The team implemented multiple upgrades and renovations including updating the pool deck, fitness center and playground area, renovating all units with stainless steel appliances, fresh paint, faux wood plank flooring, new lighting, and more.

This latest sale follows two successful property sales in Houston and Raleigh, N.C, as well as the acquisition of a 295-unit property in St. Petersburg, Fla.
