In a $68.3 million deal, PrivatePortfolio Group LLC of Seattle has acquired Crown Court Apartments, a 416-unit multi-family property in Scottsdale.
Tyler Anderson, Sean Cunningham and Asher Gunter of CBRE Group Inc.’s Phoenix office represented the seller and structured the transaction. The property was 95 percent occupied at the time of closing.
Completed in 1987, Crown Court Apartments is located at 7900 E. Princess Drive, adjacent to the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess Resort and the TPC Scottsdale golf course. Upscale shopping and dining destinations are nearby. Each unit is equipped with fully-appointed kitchens, full-size washers and dryers, and walk-in closets. The community offers two resort-style swimming pools, a designer clubhouse, 24-hour fitness center, a media/theater room and lighted sports courts.
