Lion Real Estate Group and Marble Partners have acquired Array Apartments, a 369-unit community in Austin, Texas. The deal marks the fourth acquisition of the joint venture in the East Riverside neighborhood, where it owns Alister, Emerson and Sofia Apartments.

The new owner assumed a $32 million loan funded by Fannie Mae in late October 2018, which has a 10-year term and an interest rate of 4.46 percent per annum. Lion Real Estate Group intends to complete the renovations the previous two owners initiated and further stabilize the property.
