GC Square Apartments sells for $31.02 million, following redevelopment
CaliberCos Inc., a fully integrated alternative investment sponsor, today announced the sale of GC Square Apartments, a 165-unit apartment community in Phoenix, Ariz., for $31.02 million. The Company purchased this asset for $6.46 million in October 2015. Originally designed as Class C workforce apartments located adjacent to Grand Canyon University, this multifamily asset was redeveloped by Caliber, converting the tenant demographic from low-income housing to market-rate apartments.
“With this transaction, Caliber again has leveraged its expansive capabilities across the real estate value chain to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors,” said Jennifer Schrader, President, COO, and Co-founder of Caliber. “We continue to see outsized growth across Maricopa County with particularly strong demand in the Phoenix-Mesa-Chandler metropolitan area. Caliber is uniquely positioned to identify strategic projects that both meet the needs of these growing communities and align with our investors’ objectives.”
Following its purchase of this facility, Caliber completed a $7 million renovation of the 46-year-old complex, transforming the community of apartments into a modern-day facility with multiple amenities. A full renovation down to the studs was completed on all units, including modern finishes of vinyl plank flooring, quartz counters, cabinets, individual HVAC units, and new kitchen and bathrooms. The pool and spa were replaced and expanded, and substantial common area additions and upgrades were made to the property. Additional new features included a remodeled clubhouse with exercise area, shade structures, barbeques, fire pits, hammocks, game center Wi-fi system and a new security system. The laundry facility was also upgraded and a dog wash station added. The leasing office was updated, as well as secured access gates, parking and signage.
Renovations were completed on the GC Square Apartments in April 2018, and the property was leased and has maintained stabilized occupancy since 2019. The sale was brokered by Kidder Matthews with Bret Zinn, Karl Abert, and Nathan Thinnes.
