RIVERSIDE, CA —Officials of The Preiss Company (TPCO), ranked the nation’s fifth largest, privately-held, student housing owner-operator, announced the continuation of its robust growth plan with its first two joint venture acquisitions of 2017:

·     The 760-bedroom GrandMarc at University Village (proximate to The University of California, Riverside)
·     The 416-bedroom Gateway at Huntsville (near Sam Houston State University)

Both purpose-built, student-housing properties were acquired in separate joint ventures for undisclosed amounts from different private investment groups.  TPCO will operate the facilities, as well as oversee renovations and upgrades.

“These acquisitions reflect our continued drive for nationwide expansion,” said Donna Preiss, founder and CEO, The Preiss Company.  “Our portfolio has more than doubled in size to more than 50 properties over the past five years.

“ Both of these complexes reflect the profile we seek: quality assets near large universities that are experiencing rapid enrollment growth.  In addition, we see opportunities to enhance these properties with upgrades and installation of our proprietary, student-focused management systems.

“This is our second student housing complex in California and our seventh in Texas,” she commented.  “Both campuses are new to our portfolio, and the outlook is quite positive for continued enrollment development and strong student housing demand at these schools.  We also expect to achieve economies of scale in operations at both properties.”

The GrandMarc at University Village is located on nearly 12 acres at 3549 Iowa Ave., about five minutes from the UC Riverside campus and across the street from the University Village retail center.   The complex consists of six, four-story stucco buildings. 

The 160-unit Gateway at Huntsville student housing complex, comprising 416-bedrooms/bathrooms, is located at 5050 Sam Houston Avenue. Situated on an approximate 12-acre site, the property features six, four-story buildings, a swimming pool and basketball and volleyball courts.
