Harbour Realty Partners Sells Oregon Asset

ARA brokers a 278-unit sale just outside Portland, Ore.; and HFF arranges financing for a mixed-use development that will serve as a focal point at The College of New Jersey.

Portland - Vista 23Gresham, Ore.—Harbour Apartment Opportunity Fund I, a fund sponsored by Harbour Realty Partners, has sold a 278-unit community in Gresham, Ore., known as Vista@23. The buyer was Bridge Investment Group Partners (Bridge-IGP), an SEC registered investment advisory firm. ARA brokered the sale. The price was undisclosed, but the asset was 98.2 percent occupied at the time of transaction.

Harbour picked up the property back in 2011 and remodeled amenities and units as they turned over. Vista@23 was originally built in 1990. Bridge-IGP has plans for additional improvements.

Gail Neubrug and Elizabeth Davis of ARA’s Pacific Northwest team represented Harbour in the sale.

“This is a quality value-add property which has been exceptionally well-managed,” Neuburg says. “The acquisition bolsters Bridge-IGP’s growing portfolio of assets located in the Seattle and Portland markets.”

Gresham is located in Multnomah County, which is home to many of Portland’s largest employers and more than 8 million square feet of office space.
