PHILADELPHIA – PRG Real Estate, a leading multifamily real estate investment and management firm, announced today the acquisition of Church Lake Apartments, located in Southaven, Mississippi, a robust middle class suburb of Memphis, Tennessee. 

Church Lake is a 352-unit garden-style apartment community located in the growing and supply constrained submarket of DeSoto County, minutes from the world headquarters of major logistics companies such as FedEx.  Built in 1997, Church Lake boasts luxury amenities, energy saving features in all apartment homes, and scenic views of a 2-acre lake. 

PRG’s Chief Operating Officer Sam Foster states, “The purchase of Church Lake marks PRG’s second acquisition in as many months.  Our business plan will be to take advantage of robust demographics and a growing population while introducing further operating efficiencies at the already stable and cash flowing property.   In addition, the acquisition permits further expansion in the Memphis submarket itself while providing a gateway for PRG to move into the central part of the United States during 2014.”
