Des Plaines, Ill. (June 6, 2017) – 29th Street Capital (29SC), a privately-held real estate investment and advisory firm, has acquired its fifth Chicagoland multifamily property and fourth in the northwest suburbs. The 42-unit community is located in Mount Prospect and consists of 18 one- and 24 two-bedroom units.
29SC plans to strategically invest $500,000 in capital improvements. Interior upgrades will focus on kitchens and bathrooms. Exterior improvements include structural repairs to the roof, installing energy-efficient lighting and refinishing the common areas.
“We are excited about this opportunity and believe this property is a perfect fit for our value-add capabilities,” said Dan Howard, Vice President of Acquisitions for Chicagoland. “We believe in the fundamentals of this submarket and have experienced a great deal of success with our northwest suburban portfolio.”
Rand Park Apartments is located near several employment and retail opportunities, including the adjacent Costco-anchored Randhurst Shopping Center. The property further benefits from access to the METRA commuter rail, O’Hare International Airport, and two major highways – Interstate 90 and The Tri-State Tollway (I-294).
“The property’s location is a huge positive,” Howard added. “The community has convenient access to an array of transportation options and employment opportunities, while also providing its residents an affordable living option within a highly-ranked strong school district.”
The acquisition closed May 31. The sale price was not disclosed.
