Tower 16 Capital Partners acquires fifth multifamily project in Las Vegas for $32.5 million, plans to renovate 312-unit Five89 apartments

Commercial real estate investment firm has acquired more than 2,300 units in the last 18 months


San Diego-based Tower 16 Capital Partners, in a joint venture with Henley Investments, has acquired Five89 Apartments, a 312-unit multifamily project in Las Vegas for $32.5 million. The property was acquired on an off-market basis from a private seller.

“Five89 Apartments fits very well with our investment strategy of purchasing assets below replacement cost in emerging locations with strong demand drivers,” said Tower 16 Principal Tyler Pruett.

This is the firm’s seventh acquisition in the last 18 months having acquired over 2,300 units in that timeframe and its fifth purchase in the Las Vegas market.

“We are still very bullish on the Las Vegas market given the strong job and population growth, limited new supply and overall occupancy projections for workforce housing,” said Mike Farley, principal.

Five89 Apartments is located at 4801 E. Sahara Avenue, within five miles of the Las Vegas Strip. The community consists mostly of two- and three-bedroom apartments with covered parking and private balconies or patios, two swimming pools, a fitness center, a playground and a leasing office.

Tower 16 will be overseeing $4 million in renovations and upgrades to the project including new outdoor amenities, an upgraded leasing office and interior renovations.

Pinnacle, a national multifamily real estate management firm, will take over as property manager.
