Granite Pointe, a 559-unit, garden-style multifamily property in Spokane Valley, Wash., has been sold to an unidentified buyer for $145 million.

Berkadia handled the sale of the property at 12707 E. Mansfield Ave. and secured more than $102.7 million in acquisition financing.

Berkadia only identified the seller as a Spokane, Wash.,-based developer. According to Yardi Matrix data, the most recent owner was William Lawson. Lawson is the president of A&A Construction & Development in Spokane. In October 2017, the Spokane Journal of Business reported A&A Construction was erecting Granite Pointe III for $17.9 million and had obtained building permits in May 2017. Yardi Matrix reported the Class B property, which was 95 percent occupied at the time of the sale, was built in three phases between 2008 and 2017.

Senior Managing Director Kenny Dudunakis, Managing Directors David Sorenson and Benjamin Johnson and Director George Pallis of Berkadia’s Bellevue, Wash., office completed the sale on behalf of the buyer.

Managing Director Allan Freedman, Senior Managing Director Ed Zimbler and Associate Director Nick Provost of Berkadia Los Angeles secured $102.7 million in acquisition financing. The four-year bridge loan was financed through an unidentified bank.

Pallis said in a prepared statement Granite Pointe is the largest asset in East Washington and will provide the buyer with immediate scale and ample upside moving froward as the Spokane market continues to expand at a rapid pace. Pallis said the transaction will set the stage for future core-plus trades in the market to come.
