Fifty-eight of the asset’s 93 units were included in the sale, in which a Canadian investment group picked up the asset from a local bank. The price represented an in-place cap rate of 4.82 percent.

Mike Levin and Kevin Rocio at @properties Commercial represented the seller, while Thomas Walsh, of @properties, represented the buyer.

Fountain Square was built as a multi-phased development, though only the first phase was ever built. The second phase is vacant land that has since been sold to the Town of Elgin. The parcel sold also included 72 of the 108 parking spaces.

With the acquisition, the buyer will control three of a five-member condo association.
