TAMPA, FL - Providence Real Estate, a multifamily owner-operator, announced the completion of the acquisition of the Park at Via Rosa Apartments located in the Brandon area of Tampa, Florida. The Property was acquired in a joint venture with Aegon Real Assets US, a division of Aegon N.V., a multinational life insurance, pensions and asset management company headquartered in the Netherlands.

The property was built in 2000 on approximately 24-acres and offers residents large floorplans with private entrances and 9-foot ceilings.

Furthermore, Park of Via Rosa represents the seventh property in Providence’s Tampa portfolio, and we continue to benefit from the broad strength of the overall Tampa multifamily market.” said Alan Pollack, Providence’s Chairman.

“This transaction leverages our experience and depth of relationships in the multifamily sector and illustrates our strategic goals to acquire and improve workforce housing in select metro areas,” said Cameron Jones, Head of Real Estate Equity Acquisitions for Aegon RA.
