Newmark announces the sale of Viva Max, a 240-unit value-add multifamily asset located in northwest San Antonio, Texas. The property traded from Pradeep Mistry to River Rock Capital, a private multifamily investment firm focused on properties in New Jersey and Texas. Senior Managing Director Jim Young and Director Chase Easley represented the seller. This sale represents the Newmark team’s fourth transaction selling to River Rock Capital over the past year, with the buyer’s other recent acquisitions including Broadstone Oak Hills, Hawthorne House and Alamo Park.
“Viva Max presented investors with an outstanding value-add opportunity that was attractive to both private and institutional buyers,” said Young. “The transaction was completed via a Freddie Mac loan assumption with loan terms superior to current market offerings. This asset will be a great addition to the buyer’s growing San Antonio portfolio.”
Viva Max is a garden-style apartment community located at 3631 Callaghan Road in northwest San Antonio. The property features a mix of one- and two-bedroom units with an average unit size of 733 square feet.

The property was 98.4 percent occupied at the time of sale.
