15-Acre Multi-Family Site In Venice To Become New Apartment Community

MSC Commercial Agent Dennis Dahm Brokered the $2,100,040 Deal Between

The Gallina Corporation and Discovery Village at Venice, LLC 

February 3, 2020  (Venice, Fla) – A 15-acre multi-family site located at 409 and 461 Ramsey Road closed for $2,100,040 on Wednesday, January 22nd. Commercial Advisor Dennis Dahm of MSC Commercial represented both the buyer, The Gallina Corporation, and seller, Discovery Village at Venice, LLC. Under contract for two years, the site was rezoned and is now ready for development, intended to host 116 market-rate rental apartments. The Gallina Corporation currently offers residential rental properties in Wisconsin and Florida, including its newest edition off Fruitville Road – The Bergamot. Dahm also brokered this transaction in 2018.

“The Venice market is really growing and expanding with new residential for-sale product and rental apartments,” said Dahm. “Add to that the new Sarasota Hospital, new Venice Hospital, new Amazon fulfillment center, and the Atlanta Braves facility. It’s easy to see why the area is one of the top five residential growth markets in the country. It is absolutely amazing.”
