CBRE arranges sale of Avia 266 apartments for $45.25 million


CBRE announced the sale of the 266-unit multifamily community Avia 266 from Thayer Manca Residential to Geringer Capital for $45.25 million.

CBRE’s Tyler Anderson, Sean Cunningham, Asher Gunter and Matt Pesch of Phoenix Multifamily Institutional Properties represented the seller, Thayer Manca Residential.

Located at 2354 W. University Drive in the Mesa submarket of Phoenix, Avia 266 features two swimming pools, 24-hour fitness facility, resident clubhouse, outdoor gaming space with bocce ball court, parcel pending locker for resident packages, and a dog park. Large one- and two-bedroom units have well-appointed kitchens, walk-in closets, full-size washer/dryers, and private patios or balconies.

“Avia 266 is an exceptionally well-maintained community in a submarket with dynamic multifamily drivers,” said CBRE’s Pesch. “The community’s appeal combined with the market’s fundamentals created significant buyer interest.”

According to data analyzed by CBRE Research, the multifamily occupancy rate in the northwest Mesa submarket topped 97 percent in Q3 2019 and the multifamily average rent increased 9.8 percent year-over-year compared to the national average increase of 2.9 percent.

“Avia 266 represents an excellent opportunity to enhance our Arizona portfolio with a well-positioned asset in a market with strong multifamily demand,” said Geringer Capital vice president Andrew Feola.
