LUTZ SELLS UNIVERSITY SQUARE AND LAUREL RIDGE AT TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY
BIRMINGHAM, MI (January 14, 2016): Lutz Real Estate Investments (“LUTZ”), in a joint venture with Harrison Street Real Estate Capital LLC (“Harrison Street”), has sold University Square and Laurel Ridge Apartments located near Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Kevin Larimer of Berkadia represented the seller in this transaction.
Lutz and Harrison Street acquired University Square and Laurel Ridge in December of 2012. Upon acquisition, Lutz immediately implemented its plan to upgrade the unit interiors, re-tool the amenities, improve the technology infrastructure, and make select cosmetic upgrades at both properties. Additionally, an aggressive marketing campaign was established to renew current residents early and pursue prospective residents via social media / direct marketing.
“University Square and Laurel Ridge represented a compelling opportunity to acquire two niche, well-located student housing communities that were underperforming in a Tier 1 Collegiate Market,” commented Adam M. Lutz, President & CEO of Lutz Real Estate Investments.
“In three short years, our group was able to make strategic upgrades and implement an effective leasing program, which produced outstanding investment returns to our investors.”
Lutz Real Estate Investments is actively seeking infill student housing communities that are underperforming or present a value enhancement opportunity through renovation, redevelopment, or expansion.
