Murray, UT—Su Casa Investments, LLC, a subsidiary of Su Casa Properties, announced the acquisition of the LeMans Apartments, an 83–unit project located at 945 East 4500 South in Salt Lake City, Utah, for $4,875,000. The investment was a joint venture between NBS Real Estate Capital and Peter Slaugh, General Partner and Managing Member of Su Casa Properties.
Su Casa Properties acquires and repositions multi–family apartments in markets in the Western States. Mr. Slaugh is an experienced real estate investor and mortgage banker based in San Francisco, CA. This latest acquisition represents the 31st transaction completed by NBS Real Estate Capital on behalf of the Morrison Street series of private equity funds.
The attractive cost basis, favorable unit mix, strong market fundamentals and value–added potential make this an excellent addition to both Su Casa Investments’s existing portfolio and the Morrison Street Fund II, L.P.
The partnership’s renovation program will include substantial upgrades to the exterior appearance of the property in the form of architectural treatments and repainting as well as improvements to landscaping, signage and lighting. Interior improvements will include new appliances, flooring, new paint, new lighting, cabinet faces and countertops.
Salt Lake City remains one of the more dynamic economies in the country, fueled by continued population and job growth. Rental units in the property’s market area are undersupplied, resulting in low vacancies and increasing rental rates.
