“The underlying dynamics of the Salt Lake City investment market remain sound, despite current challenges,” said Danny Shin, IPA senior vice president. “With its healthy economic climate, highly educated workforce, and growing list of high-profile employers entering the market, Salt Lake City and nearby developing submarkets continue to be pursued by a wide range of multifamily investors.” Shin and Brock Zylstra, IPA first vice president, brokered the transaction with the buyer, Elan Multifamily Investments, a Silicon Valley-based syndicator. The seller was Liberty Crossing Associates LLC. “The newly constructed luxury apartment community is part of a 14.5-acre mixed-use redevelopment project in the heart of Downtown South Salt Lake,” added Zylstra. “Liberty Crossing is well positioned for future growth due to its superior location and exceptional demographics.”
