SAN JOSE, CA - Funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, in a joint venture with MG Properties, have purchased The Platform Urban Apartments, a 551-unit community in San Jose, CA.
The Platform is a transit-oriented mixed-use community with 35,000 sf of ground floor retail, completed in 2019. Located in the Berryessa submarket of San Jose, The Platform is in a premier Bay Area location defined by strong employment growth by established and expanding global technology companies.
"We believe the Bay Area is poised for a recovery and is well priced in comparison to other markets," MG Properties President Jeff Gleiberman said of MG Properties' investment. "The Bay Area market is seeing explosive employment growth which we expect to drive multi-family demand."
Jared Lazarus, managing director in Oaktree's Real Estate Group, added, "We are excited about our partnership with MG Properties to acquire The Platform, which we believe is a high-quality asset in the attractive multi-family sector. This transit-oriented, luxury community asset will strongly benefit from the Bay Area's continued economic recovery from the pandemic."
The Platform Urban Apartments is a luxury community with an attractive contemporary design, an expansive resort-style common area amenity package, and well appointed, functional floorplans.
The sellers were represented by Eastdil Secured. The acquisition of the community was financed with a loan from TPG Real Estate Finance Trust Inc., an affiliate of alternative asset management firm TPG, arranged by Eastdil Secured.
