"360 Residences is one of the highest quality residential projects in Silicon Valley," said Joan Kramer, managing director of KW Commercial Investment Group. "We have worked extensively over the past several months in cooperation with the original developer as well as the San Jose Redevelopment Agency to reposition it as a rental property."
360 Residences was originally built as a for sale condominium project but none of the units sold. Kennedy Wilson acquired the first trust deed on the project in November of 2010. The addition of 360 Residences brings the company's portfolio of multifamily assets, including units currently under contract, to 13,192 units in the western U.S. and Japan.
"We are pleased to add 360 Residences to our portfolio," commented Mary Ricks, executive vice chair of Kennedy Wilson. "San Jose was recently cited by various industry experts as the fastest growing rental market in the United States."
Kennedy Wilson now owns three multifamily properties consisting of 868 units in the San Jose market. 360 Residences is comprised of one bedroom/one bath to three bedroom/three bath units averaging 1,320 square feet. Residential amenities include indoor parking, a concierge doorman, fitness center, outdoor pool and a private landscaped outdoor garden and terrace.
