JLL arranges sale of Atlanta Sheraton on behalf of Amerimar Enterprises, Contrarian Capital

JLL arranged the sale of the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel on behalf of affiliates of Amerimar Enterprises and Contrarian Capital. Affiliates of Arden Group purchased the 763-key property, located in downtown Atlanta.

Managing director Robert Webster, EVP Tim Southard and VP John Harper led the JLL team on the transaction. JLL has now sold over $1 billion in Atlanta hotels since 2013, including over $600 million downtown Atlanta.

“The sellers recently transformed this institutional quality asset through significant renovations. And it’s located adjacent to Georgia State University in rapidly growing Downtown Atlanta, making it very appealing to buyers,” Webster said in a statement. “With limited new supply in the area and increasing demand, Atlanta’s lodging market is expected to continue growing in the years to come.”
