1,024 bed student housing asset sold by the Shin–Zylstra team of Marcus & Millichap

Marcus & Millichap Capital Corp. (MMCC) arranged the acquisition financing.


Marcus & Millichap, a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, has announced the sale of Northpoint, a 154-unit, 1,024-bed student housing property located in Rexburg, Idaho.

“Northpoint is one of the country’s premier student housing assets,” says Brock Zylstra, vice president investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Salt Lake City office. “The property’s amenity package and proximity to the Brigham Young University-Idaho (BYU-Idaho) campus separate it from the surrounding student housing competition. BYU-Idaho’s solid fundamentals and projected enrollment growth attract many out-of-state investors to the Rexburg market.”

Zylstra and Danny Shin, senior vice president investments, represented the seller, the original developer of the property, and procured the buyer, a seasoned student housing owner from Southern California. Colton Smith, first vice president capital markets with MMCC, arranged 10-year financing with five years of interest only.

Built in 2014 on three acres, Northpoint is a BYU-Idaho-approved student housing community that features 104 three-bedroom units, 50 four-bedroom apartments and 2,677 square feet of street-level retail space with tenants that include Papa John’s Pizza, Café Rio, The Cocoa Bean, and Port of Subs.

Paul Ryan, senior associate in Marcus & Millichap’s Boise office, is the firm’s broker of record in Idaho.
