Matthew Kesterson, a vice president of investments in the firm’s Vero Beach office and Jeffrey Fript, a senior associate in Houston, represented the seller, Miami-based Alterra Capital Group LLC. Marcus & Millichap also represented the buyer, Mosaic Residential Inc. of Houston.

“The sale of Mediterra at Westchase demonstrates continued investor demand for stabilized properties in strong submarkets where rents can be grown over time,” says Fript. “The new owner plans to reposition this asset by investing in upgrades.”

ARA brokers the sale of a 5-unit apartment for $151,580 per unit

Denver–Atlanta-headquartered ARA brokered the sale of 1194-1196 Ash St. in Denver. The buyer, an out-of-state private investor, purchased the property for $757,900, representing a price per unit of $151,580 and a price per square foot of $93.15.

Built in 1948, 1194-1196 Ash St. is located less than three blocks from Rose Medical Center and is adjacent to the university and Veteran’s Hospital redevelopment site in Denver. The neighborhood is expected to see significant changes in the upcoming years in what is scheduled to be one of the largest infill redevelopments in Colorado. The redevelopment will add new retail and office properties and will re-establish the street grid to create an environment much like Cherry Creek North.

“The buyer owns the property to the east that is contiguous to 1194-1196 Ash St. Both properties were built by the same builder and are very similar. These buyers have been looking to buy for the last few years and this was the perfect property in every way,” says Shane Ozment, ARA Denver-based vice president who along with Terrance Hunt, ARA Denver-based principal, represented the seller in the transaction.

The property features large units averaging over 1,300 square feet, hardwood floors, Terrazzo floors in entryways, new appliances and updated kitchens in select units, original light fixtures, crown molding, and a four-car garage with automatic doors. The property was 100 percent occupied at the time of closing.
