With a population of roughly 13,000, Newcastle offers its residents both the conveniences of urban living with the lifestyle of a small town. Located just 5 miles south of Downtown Bellevue, 3 miles north of Renton and 10 miles southeast of Downtown Seattle, the submarket is ideally positioned between the region's largest employment hubs. Each of these can be easily accessed via Interstate 405, which has onramps less than 5 minutes from the site.
As for the micro-location, Newcastle offers residents a suburban lifestyle full of retail, restaurants, 40 acres of parks/open spaces and numerous other local attractions. Tria is conveniently located in downtown Newcastle, across the street from Coal Creek Village. The shopping center includes a QFC, Safeway and Bartell Drugs among other businesses.
According to Alex Gauper, Director at Security Properties, "the acquisition of Tria represented a unique opportunity to purchase a high-quality asset at a significant discount to replacement cost in one of the Eastside's most highly desired submarkets. Newcastle's combination of a pivot point location for accessing regional employers, lack of future housing supply and an exemplary rental demographic, well position the asset to capitalize on the submarket's long term growth prospects. We are very excited to add Tria to our Pacific Northwest portfolio and look forward to delivering strong returns to our investors over our hold."
The property will be managed by Security Properties-affiliate Security Properties Residential.
