HFF announces sale of 284-unit multi-housing community in Houston, TX

The Edge at City Centre Apartments, 8410 West Bartell Drive,
Houston, TX

HOUSTON, TX –– HFF announces the sale of The Edge at City Centre, a 284-unit, garden-style multi-housing community near the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas.

Chris Young
The HFF team marketed the property exclusively on behalf of the seller, 29th Street Capital, and procured the buyer, ClearWorth Capital LLC.

The Edge at City Centre is situated on approximately seven acres at 8410 West Bartell Drive inside the 610 Loop in Central Houston, which positions it within two miles of more than 110,000 jobs in the Texas Medical Center. 

 Additionally, the property is within walking distance to two METRO bus lines and is less than one mile from NRG Stadium. 

Originally built in 1983, 29th Street Capital invested more than $2.6 million to rebrand, renovate and reposition with significant capital improvements. 

Joey C. Rippel
Floor plans include a mix of one- and two-bedroom units averaging 765 square feet.  The property was 94 percent occupied at closing.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included directors Chris Young and Joey Rippel and analyst Connor Phillips.

“The Edge at City Centre generated a high level of interest due to its infill location and value-add potential,” Young said.  

“It is well-positioned for future growth due to the lack of workforce housing options in Houston’s urban core, and it’s also in one of Houston’s Opportunity Zones.”

“Buyers appreciated that 29th Street had completed the heavy lifting at the property, leaving new ownership a clear runway to capture rent growth from unit upgrades and improving market fundamentals.” Young added.

Holliday GP Corp. (“HFF”) is a Texas licensed real estate broker.

TAMPA, FL – Pulte Homes’ West Florida Division announced its Oct. 1 Building to Make Lives Better Golf Tournament raised $109,195 for the Children’s Home Network.

Sean Strickler
The money will help fund operations at Kids Village, Adolescents in Motherhood and other community outreach programs that serve Tampa Bay’s at-risk children and families.

 A total of 130 golfers participated in the all-day tournament at Avila Golf & Country Club in Tampa. Platinum sponsors Hill Ward Henderson, Interior Logic Group and Rosen Materials each donated $10,000 to the event. Pulte Homes underwrote all tournament expenses, allowing all proceeds to go to the Children’s Home Network.

 “We are grateful to be able to contribute to the well-being of children and their families who are most in need of support,” said Sean Strickler, President of Pulte’s West Florida Division, who is also a Children’s Home Network board member.

 “The residential, family counseling and resource services provided benefit those who face the greatest family challenges. It is important for Pulte and our generous trade partners to give back eto the community in which we all live and work, and to assist these very deserving children and families through this incredible charity.”

The Promise Center interior

Children’s Home Network began in 1892 when founder Carrie Hammerly began aiding orphaned and abandoned children in Tampa. Six years later, she and other local women formed a non-profit, The Children’s Home.

Over the next 130 years, it grew to serve all of the Tampa Bay area, adding programs and an 88-acre property with housing, medical and counseling services. The current name was adopted in 2017.

 Today, the non-profit operates Kid’s Village, a residential healing campus for children ages 6-17 who have been abused or neglected. Other programs help young people, parents and caregivers:

  • Adolescents in Motherhood program supports teen mothers and mothers-to-be with caregivers and trained staff on a residential campus in Tampa
  • The SEEDS Program works with schools to prepare children for kindergarten
  • Fostering Families recruits and prepares foster families and seeks to keep siblings together and reunify families
  • Kinship supports relatives who are caregivers to promote family stability
  • Pinellas Support Team helps families whose children are having difficulty in school due to behavioral and emotional issues
  • Healthy Families Hillsborough operates a home visiting program that helps expectant parents and parents of newborns cope with stressful situations
  • Three family resource centers in Hillsborough County offer services emphasizing child development, health and safety.
Kids Village, Tampa, FL

Since partnering with The Children’s Home Network in 2016, Pulte Homes has raised over $282,000 to benefit the organization. In 2017 the charity announced that it had utilized the proceeds from the annual golf tournament to fund the renovation of a vocational building, now named the Pulte Promise Center. 

The Promise Center offers a beautiful facility for the continued education of children ages 6-18 who are victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment.
