ARA Executes Land Sale of Houston In-Fill Site

HOUSTON, TX - Atlanta-headquartered ARA, the largest privately held, full-service investment advisory brokerage firm in the nation focusing exclusively on the multihousing industry, announces the sale of a 3.17 acre site in the desirable Galleria submarket of Houston, TX.

ARA Houston’s land brokerage specialists, David Marshall and Tim Dosch, represented the Hunnicut Family, a private, local area developer, in the sale.

Located at on S. Post Oak Lane, the 3.17 acre site is one of the few remaining in-fill development sites in the much sought-after, affluent Galleria submarket.  The site currently houses a circa 1960’s 78-unit multifamily development, which was originally developed by the Hunnicut Family, and will be demolished to make way for a new 270-unit multihousing community.

The site was acquired by Newport Beach, CA-based The Greystone Group for an un-disclosed price.

Investor interest in the site was heightened largely due to both timing of the sale and the site’s location.  “The marketing effort for the site was initiated in June when the sales cycle was really hitting full-speed and a number of developers and equity and debt sources were competing for deals in the Houston market” said ARA’ David Marshall.  ARA’s Tim Dosch added, “We received 20 offers on the site in just a 30-day period.”
