Hamilton Zanze Acquires Bluebird Row Apartments in Tennessee

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 12, 2020

San Francisco-based real estate investment firm Hamilton Zanze (HZ) acquired the 283-unit Bluebird Row Apartments in Chattanooga, TN on March 4th. The purchase marks the firm's fourth acquisition of the year and their sixth property in Tennessee.

The community, newly built in 2019, is located two hours between Nashville and Atlanta and is situated at the junction of several states, with direct access to Interstates 75 and 24. The community offers a mix of luxury studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units averaging 935 square feet in size, with desirable amenities including smart home technology.

"Bluebird Row offered an attractive opportunity to buy a brand-new property in Chattanooga. The property features a robust amenity package, prime location in Downtown Chattanooga, and offers residents a high quality of life provided by the city's energetic urban core," said David Nelson, Hamilton Zanze's managing director of acquisitions. "As this is our first acquisition in the Chattanooga metro and sixth in the state of Tennessee within the last 12 months, we are excited about our continued investment in Tennessee."

High-end community amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, rooftop lounge, 24-hour self-serve market, outdoor grilling stations, rock climbing wall, bocce ball court, pet spa, and a yoga/spin studio. Property management responsibilities have been transferred to affiliated company Mission Rock Residential.

Bluebird Row is located in Downtown Chattanooga, the second-fastest growing city in Tennessee and the hub of a thriving economic region given its location at the juncture of Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. In November 2019, Volkswagen began the $800 million expansion of their Chattanooga plant, creating 1,000 additional jobs in the region. Other notable area employers include Erlanger Healthy System, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, Tennessee Valley Authority, McKee Foods Corporation, and Amazon.


Hamilton Zanze (HZ) is a private, San Francisco-based real estate investment company that invests in value-add multifamily real estate. Since its founding in 2001, Hamilton Zanze has acquired over $4.6 billion in multifamily assets primarily in the Western, Southwestern, and Eastern U.S. The company currently owns and operates 86 properties (21,211 units) across 15 states.
