David Walkin of Meridian Capital Group arranged acquisition financing for Alpha Wave. The loan was provided by Texas-based ReadyCap.
This is the third multifamily property the firm has acquired in the greater Salt Lake area within the past nine months – a strategy that is well-aligned with the firm’s focus on acquiring value-add properties in high-growth secondary markets, according to Jordan Fisher, a Founding Partner of Alpha Wave.

“We are bullish on the Salt Lake City market based on its strong growth fundamentals,” says Fisher. “While most people think of tech hubs only in coastal states, Utah’s ‘Silicon Slopes’ is in fact a giant in the technology industry, with a large startup ecosystem that includes, Domo and Pluralsite. In addition, major firms such as Adobe and eBay maintain a large regional presence.”
Fisher notes that the and ZAGG corporate headquarters are within one mile of Park Station Apartments, which is well-located off Interstate 15 and adjacent to a TRAX light rail station, providing residents ease of access to employers throughout the metro area.

“The Salt Lake City region has experienced some of the highest rates of salary growth in the country over the past several years,” continues Fisher.
“Utah is poised for significant future growth, with the state’s population expected to double by 2065, positioning multifamily investments for long-term success.
"Further, the market has long garnered a strong reputation for being business-friendly, consistently ranking within Forbes’ top three Best States for Business.”
