North Texas multifamily asset trades hands all cash


Marcus & Millichap, a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, announced the sale of Parkside Townhomes, a 144-unit multifamily asset in Arlington, Texas. The sale closed all cash.

Allen represented the seller, a Texas-based limited liability corporation and procured the buyer, the California-based subsidiary of a Japanese investment firm.
