Totaling 800 units, the properties are Park at Estancia, located at 820 Camino Vaquero Parkway in Austin, and Park at Crystal Falls, located at 7740 183A Toll Road in Leander, Texas.

Park at Estancia is a newly completed luxury community within the master-planned Estancia Hill Country development.

The 480-unit community is more than 90 percent occupied, according to Yardi Matrix data. Located in a northern suburb of Austin, the property features one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, with an average size ranging from 576 to 1,446 square feet. Apartments have in-unit washers and dryers and walk-in closets. Among the community amenities are a modern clubhouse, pool and lazy river, and outdoor kitchen and picnic area.
