SEATTLE, WA – A partnership between Security Properties and a subsidiary of Rockwood Capital has completed an acquisition of three real estate portfolios, the companies announced. The acquisition consists of The Ardea, a class A multi-family high-rise with 323 units in Portland, OR; Windward, an A + 200-unit mixed-use project in Lake Oswego, OR; and The Metro, a 415 unit Class A asset in Denver, CO.
Davis Vaughn, Senior Director at Security Properties, said, "This is one of the most exciting acquisitions in over 50 years of history. Off-market acquisitions of this magnitude are extremely rare, especially given the quality of the portfolio. We feel like we are buying the leader Suburban asset across the Portland MSA in Windward, a trophy skyscraper in Ardea on a significantly below replacement cost base, and a well-located urban metro asset ready to benefit from continued growth in Denver Flagships We look forward to further expanding the SP footprint on the West Coast. "
"Consistent with our overarching property value investment thesis, each asset is strategically located within its marketplace, providing tenants with access to outdoor facilities, retail options and proximity to employment offices," said Matthew Friedman, a managing director of Rockwood Capital. "Windward and Ardea are exceptionally high quality assets in addition to their compelling frameworks, while Metro offers a solid value creation opportunity in the dynamic Denver marketplace. Overall, we are extremely excited to add such a high quality portfolio of assets to our target markets."
