Will Balthrope
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap serving the needs of institutional and major private real estate investors, has arranged the sale of 1800 Broadway, a 230-unit apartment building located north of downtown San Antonio in the city’s Lower Broadway Corridor. 

The terms of the sale were not released.

            IPA executive director Will Balthrope and IPA director Drew Kile represented the developer, Criterion Property Company, LP of Dallas and Boston, and its equity partner, Cypress Real Estate Advisors of Austin.  The property was professionally managed by Greystar Real Estate Partners.

The buyer is Churchill Forge Properties, a Boston-based firm. One of Churchill Forge Properties’ owners, Paul Resnek, is based in San Antonio.

            “This premier multifamily commercial real estate investment asset is at the epicenter of growth near the Pearl Brewery in the emerging Lower Broadway Corridor, a submarket that shows promising strong future rent growth as it continues to draw residents at a record pace,” says Balthrope. 

Drew Kile
“This is the first multifamily asset in this submarket to sell, and it sets a great standard for all high-end multifamily assets in the San Antonio market.”

            “Compared to other Texas urban infill submarkets, the Lower Broadway Corridor is in the infancy of its growth,” Balthrope continues.

 “Strong existing demand, demonstrated by record lease-ups, will continue as more office, retail and entertainment options are added.  

"The area is emerging as a location of great interest to renters and investors, much as Uptown Dallas and Galleria Houston evolved,” Balthrope concludes.

           1800 Broadway is on the corner of Broadway and Grayson streets directly across the street from the large mixed-use Pearl Brewery development, home of the Culinary Institute of America, many high-end retailers and 14 award-winning restaurants.

 Multiple on- and off-ramps for U.S. Route 281 and Interstate 35 are nearby and the world-famous San Antonio River Walk, featuring a hike/bike trail and riverboat shuttles that run throughout downtown San Antonio, is two blocks away.  There are more than 119,000 jobs—55 percent more than in any other San Antonio location—within a three-mile radius of the property.

Anita Paryani

 AURORA, CO – Institutional Property Advisors Capital Markets (IPACM), a leading provider of debt and equity placements and advisory solutions for major investors, has arranged $34,080,000 in refinancing for a 454-unit multifamily investment property in Aurora, Colo.

            Jake Roberts and Anita Paryani, both first vice presidents capital markets in IPACM’s West Los Angeles office, structured the debt.

            “An IPA Capital client for more than 10 years, the property owner was confident we could take advantage of the low interest rate environment and maximize the leverage they needed to cash out money from the asset they have owned and created value in for nearly 20 years,” says Roberts.

“This required a solid appraisal and a lender who would go to 80 percent loan to value on a refinance,” adds Paryani.

 “IPA identified a lender who was willing to push the LTV to the necessary level and meet our client’s financial goals.”

Jake Roberts
The debt is structured with a seven-year term amortized over 30 years with a fixed 3.88 percent interest rate with a few years of interest only.
