Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (“Greystar”), a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, today announced the acquisition of the 412-unit Desert View Apartments in Phoenix on behalf of its real estate funds.
The asset, which has been rebranded Avana Desert View, is located in North Scottsdale – a submarket defined by strong employment and demographic fundamentals. Greystar plans to enhance the resident experience and unlock embedded value through strategic capital investments and operational improvements.
“With the acquisition of Avana Desert View, we gain access to one of the area’s most desirable submarkets and add to our growing Phoenix portfolio, which now includes seven very well-located multifamily communities,” said Kevin Kaberna, Executive Director and leader of Greystar’s U.S. Investment platform. “We remain bullish on Phoenix due its sustained economic and job growth, and we expect it to be a top market for continued growth over the next five years. We look forward to leveraging our deep local market knowledge, operational expertise and financial capabilities to create value for our residents.”
Completed in 1996, Avana Desert View boasts exceptional visibility along East Bell Road, a major east-west artery, and benefits from its proximity to many of Phoenix’s premier retail, dining and entertainment venues. Moreover, the property is situated a short distance from I-51 and I-101, providing residents with easy access to the area’s major employment centers including Deer Valley, Desert Ridge, Paradise Valley Village and Downtown Phoenix. Importantly, an American Express campus that employs more than 7,500 people and the Scottsdale Airpark Employment Corridor, which employs more than 85,000 people, are located within four miles of the property.
