MG Properties Group has acquired Parq Crossing, a 288-unit community in Sparks, Nev. The company purchased the property directly from its developer, Guardian Capital, in an off-market transaction.

The buyer secured a $48.8 million acquisition loan provided by KeyBank. Brooks Benjamin arranged the financing.

According to Yardi Matrix data, the developer financed the recently completed project with a $35.2 million construction loan funded by East West Bank.

The garden-style community located at 2280 Oddie Blvd. provides studios as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments. The 2020-built property has floorplans averaging 668 square feet across eight three-story buildings.

Parq Crossing features a fitness center, yoga studio, social lounge, co-working lounge and conference room, as well as a barbecue pavilion and picnic area. The pet-friendly community also offers a dog park alongside a dog wash and grooming area.

The property is situated within a mile of several shopping and dining options, as well as Teglia’s Paradise Park Community Garden. Downtown Sparks and Renown Regional Medical Center are less than 3 miles from the community.

Interstates 80 and 580 along with Freeway 395 are easily reachable, providing access to employment hubs such as the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center or the Reno Technology Park.
