Hudson Capital Investments acquires 200 units in suburban Houston
Richmond, Texas—Hudson Capital Investments is the new owner of The Palms at Cinco Ranch, a 200-unit community located in Richmond, Texas. The firm acquired the asset in a Marcus & Millichap brokered sale from an out-of state private investor.
“The Houston metro’s apartment sector is riding tailwinds generated by one of the nation’s strongest and fastest growing economies,” says Norman Eastwood, senior vice president investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Dallas office. “Broad-based hiring across multiple industries enhances the metro’s stature as a magnet for recent graduates from local and regional colleges, further expanding the pool of prospective renters.”
Eastwood worked with Jerry Goldstein, first vice president investments, and Juan Cuevas, associate, both of Marcus & Millichap’s Houston office, in representing the seller. The Palms at Cinco Ranch is located near State Highway 99 within the Katy, Texas, independent school district. Built in 2010, the asset has an amenity package that includes a clubhouse, business center with conference room, a 24-hour fitness center, swimming pool with a sundeck and hot tub, a barbecue grilling area, and 34 detached garages.
