Cracking the Market in Walnut Creek

According to Trisha Malone, Anton’s chief investment officer, building new housing in California is the development company’s top priority. Brandon Dinon, Anton’s director of acquisitions, added that the city was an attractive location for Anton DevCo’s latest project. “Walnut Creek is a great market with consistent annual rent growth over the past few years and vacancy under five percent on Class A product,” Dinon told Multi-Housing News. “The city is an under-supplied marketplace with high average income and fantastic proximity to public transit and local amenities, in addition to having strong local job growth.”

Throughout California, Anton DevCo has built 60 apartment communities that total more than 9,000 units and currently owns and manages 24 communities. In August 2018, Anton DevCo’s 394-unit multifamily project in Menlo Park, Calif., received a $178.3 million refinancing loan from Capital One.
