HFO Brokers Sale of 283-Unit Gateway Apartment Community for $57.85M

San Diego, Calif. – MG Properties Group, a private San Diego-based real estate investor and operator, has announced the acquisition of the Russellville Commons Apartments in Portland, Oregon.

The 283-unit property was built as a luxury apartment community in 1999.  Units average 875 square feet and include a mix of floor plans in both townhome and flat configurations. Russellville Commons features remarkable common area amenities, including a resort-style pool and spa, modern fitness center with a yoga room, and a resident lounge and business center. The property is located in Portland’s Gateway District, an emerging transportation-oriented neighborhood providing convenient access by car and light rail to multiple job corridors throughout the Portland metropolitan area.

Russellville Commons was purchased for $57,850,000 from The Reliant Group, a San Francisco-based holding company. The seller was represented by Cody Hagerman and Tyler Johnson at HFO Investment Real Estate. The acquisition was financed with a 10-year fixed-rate mortgage provided by Joe Briganti at PNC Real Estate.

According to Mark Gleiberman, MG Properties Group Chief Executive Officer, “We are very pleased to expand our portfolio in the Pacific Northwest region with the acquisition of Russellville Commons. The property represents a continuation of our strategy to acquire high-quality assets with the potential for value-add improvements and strong current income generation.”

Russellville Commons marks MG Properties Group’s seventh acquisition in the past year.  The seven acquisitions totaled approximately 2,600 units and over $400,000,000 in combined purchase price.
