ARA brokers a 599-unit sale for Regional Investment & Management; Grandbridge closes a $33 million refinance for a Texas apartment community; and NorthMarq Capital arranges a $21.4 million construction loan.

Austin - Park West and Parliament Bend Portfolio PrimarySan Antonio—Regional Investment & Management, a California-based owner and operator of Texas multifamily, has completed its disposition of a two property portfolio in San Antonio. ARA’s Austin office brokered the 559-unit transaction of behalf of the seller. The properties, Park West and Parliament Bend, were acquired by a private owner/operator who has plans to upgrade unit interiors.

“Park West and Parliament Bend were highly sought after by private investors seeking a value-add opportunity in a great location,” says Pat Jones, Austin-based principal at ARA Austin. “Mid-1980s construction is popular with multifamily investors due to the ease at which you can upgrade this property type and seek increased rents.”

Park West consists of 327 units and was constructed in 1979 and Parliament Bend consists of 232 units and was constructed in 1981. Both class B garden-style apartment communities are located in the Castle Hills submarket in north central San Antonio, an area that is expected to grow to 300,000 residents within five years.
