SEATTLE, WA - Security Properties Inc., one of the largest multifamily real estate owners in the country, announced that its Multifamily Fund has completed its third closing and acquired two new apartment properties.
The Security Properties Multifamily Fund was launched in June 2011. Security Properties partnered with its investors to create a private equity real estate fund that would provide a diversified alternative to stocks and bonds. The fund was created to make direct investments, either through wholly-owned entities or in joint venture partnership with institutions.
The Security Properties Multifamily Fund has made two recent investments in and around Seattle:
Newport Crossing, a 192-unit apartment property located in the city of Newcastle, Washington, was purchased for $30.35 million. Newport Crossing was built in 1990 and is situated in a prime town-center location adjacent to efficient transit service.
700 Broadway, an iconic apartment property in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, was purchased for $20.25 million. The property includes 59 residential units and 10,673 square feet of well-located retail.
"The Seattle purchases reflect our overall strategy of pursuing multifamily real estate investment opportunities in high-growth western markets characterized by sustainable job and population growth, significant barriers to development and high homeownership costs," said McGovern. "Seattle's market is typical of what we are after: a dynamic economy, solid demographics and supply constraints that combine to make investing in the region compelling."
The Security Properties Multifamily Fund will also pursue multifamily real estate investment opportunities in other western U.S. markets, including Portland, coastal Southern California, San Francisco Bay Area, Scottsdale and Denver.
Security Properties is a national real estate investment and operating company headquartered in Seattle, Washington with over 40 years of experience in both affordable and conventional multifamily rental housing. The company's broad range of capabilities includes acquisitions, development, financing, asset and property management, dispositions and advisory services.
