For Immediate Release:


Pasadena, CA (November 19, 2020) – CALCAP Advisors is announcing that it has purchased University Commons apartments, located at 3450 West Missouri Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85017.  The acquisition closed on September 18, 2020 for $13,000,000 ($102,362/unit and $186 per square foot).

Built in 1983, University Commons apartments features 127 garden-style units in seven two-story buildings.  The property consists of 10 Studio units, 111 one-bedroom/one bath units, and 6 two-bedroom/one bath units, with an average unit size of 550 square feet.  Common area amenities include two swimming pools, an on-site laundry facility, and covered parking.  Select apartments feature a private patio/balcony, walk-in closets, and full-size washer/dryer connections.

“University Commons apartments presents a significant management turnaround and value-add opportunity”, stated Edward Aloe, President & CEO of CALCAP Advisors.  “The property is located directly across the street from Grand Canyon University, which has continued to grow in enrollment and stature every year.  Our experience in the West Valley is significant.  CALCAP has completed 6 full asset turns on apartment buildings here since 2012.  The asset is currently under-performing and we plan on spending approximately $1 million to upgrade the property with new exterior paint and landscaping improvements, as well as completing interior upgrades in specified units.”

CALCAP’s in-house property management company, CALCAP Properties, will manage the renovations and day to day operations at University Commons.

CALCAP Advisors is continuing to source multi-family acquisitions throughout the Southwest.  The company has completed thirty-two acquisitions with a value of approximately $400 million since 2010.
