TampaThe RADCO Companies recently closed the sale of The Newport Villas Apartments in Tampa, making it the company’s sixth acquisition this year. Rebranded into Mabry Manor, the community offers 372 B class units which will be managed by the company’s proprietary management platform, RADCO Residential.

RADCO purchased the asset for $20.1 million, or $54,570 per unit (roughly $80 per square foot) from Monument Real Estate Services, with a $16.5 million loan provided by Prudential Insurance Company. The company plans to invest an additional $5.2 million in capital improvements to modernize and upgrade the community.

“With its superior location right in the heart of the booming Northwest Tampa submarket, Mabry Manor is a modern day oasis,” said Norman Radow, founder & CEO of The RADCO Companies. “The beautiful grounds offer unparalleled waterfront access with a private lake, which is an exclusive amenity in this highly desirable submarket. All the property needs is vision, passion and thoughtful use of capital to realize its full potential.”
