The 2012-built Parcland Crossing, located 800 W Willis Road, features two swimming pool areas with cabanas, a fully equipped fitness center with spin room, resident clubhouse with game room, a business center and children’s playground.

“We continue to see elevated interest from multifamily investors looking to Phoenix for quality assets and strong fundamentals,” said Anderson. “The Laurel’s central location in the Chandler submarket perfectly positions the community to benefit from the region’s accelerating metrics.”

Phoenix posted one of the highest year-over-year multifamily rent increases of all U.S. metros in Q1 2021 with a 5.3 percent increase, according to CBRE research. The average multifamily rent in Chandler increased 6.1 percent in that time frame.

“We are excited to add The Laurel to our multifamily portfolio, and the community’s solid bones provide an excellent base to execute our repositioning strategy,” said Sunroad Asset Management President Dan Feldman. “The Phoenix multifamily market is one of the strongest in the country, and we continue to explore more opportunities in the region.”

He added, “The Laurel is our tenth acquisition in Phoenix bringing our total count to 2,500 Class-A multifamily units in the market. We have strategically identified Phoenix as a market where we will actively continue to grow our presence.”
