Luxury San Francisco Peninsula multifamily sale closed by Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) for $88.65 million


Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap, announced the sale of Township Apartments, a 132-unit apartment asset in Redwood City, California. The sales price is $88.65 million, or $671,591 per unit and $735 per square foot.

“Township Apartments is a transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly luxury community located in Redwood City’s vibrant downtown neighborhood that provides residents with a live, work and play environment on the Bay Area Peninsula,” said IPA senior director Salvatore Saglimbeni. “Strategically situated midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Redwood City and the surrounding mid-peninsula corridor are in the midst of a commercial renaissance that includes approximately 2 million square feet of office space under construction within a three-mile radius of the property.”

Salvatore Saglimbeni, Stanford Jones, IPA executive director, and Philip Saglimbeni, IPA senior director, represented the seller, Nuveen Real Estate.

Residents of Township Apartments can walk to top Redwood City employers such as Box, numerous startups, and hundreds of upscale restaurants, bars and retailers. Other renowned employers located in Redwood City include Google, Oracle, Kaiser, Sony, Gilead Sciences, and Life Technologies. San Francisco and Silicon Valley destinations can be reached from the downtown Redwood City Caltrain station just over a half mile from the property, and freeway options such as U.S. Route 101 and Interstate 280.

“Redwood City’s job base and amenity-rich lifestyle has resulted in robust market fundamentals—the average household income is $145,746 and average home price is $1,518,000,” noted Saglimbeni.

Built in 2014 on 2.3 acres, the property has a resort-style setting and inviting communal gathering spaces. Unit interiors average 914 square feet and are equipped with luxury finishes including quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The community has a 13 percent below-market rent affordable component.
