Crosswinds apartment community at 868 S. Arizona Ave. in Chandler has been sold for $54,250,000.  The 374-unit property offers its California buyer opportunity to modernize the property and increase its value in the growing Chandler area.

“Crosswinds’ value-add opportunity and fabulous infill location near the thriving downtown Chandler area is hard to find in today’s market,” says Brad Cooke with Colliers Arizona.  “The activity that was created just from sending out a coming soon blast to our proprietary database was record setting.  It became evident very early that Tides offer and track record was strong enough to make the decision easy for our seller”

Brad Cooke, Cindy Cooke, Matt Roach and Chris Roach of Colliers Arizona handled the sale transaction.  Tides Equities of Los Angeles purchased the property from Emma Capital Investments of Toronto, Canada.
