San Diego-based Tower 16 Capital Partners has acquired Park 67 Apartments, a 160-unit multifamily property located in Glendale, Ariz., for $30.4 million. The Park 67 Apartments project was built in 1973 and was acquired from a private seller.

“This acquisition marks our seventh property acquired in the Phoenix market and increases our foothold in the Phoenix area to nearly 1,200 units,” said Tower 16 co-founder Mike Farley. “We remain bullish on the Phoenix region given the continued in-migration and strong employment growth coming out of the pandemic and are actively looking to expand our presence there.”

Since its founding in 2017, Tower 16 has entered several other markets throughout the West, having acquired nearly 5,700 units in California, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson and Denver. The company seeks markets with increasing demand for workforce housing driven by job growth and in-migration but with relatively low levels of new supply. According to company executives, Tower 16 is well underway on its goal to acquiring 2,000 units in the Phoenix market over the next couple years.

Park 67 Apartments is located at 6112 N. 67th Ave in Glendale, Ariz. The property includes a leasing office, fitness center, playground and a pool. The property is located within minutes of the U.S. Route 60 with strong access to north Phoenix and the West Valley, which is home to one of the fastest growing e-commerce and distribution markets in the country.

Tower 16 will be overseeing close to $4.5 million in upgrades and renovations at the property including modernized unit upgrades, exterior common areas and landscaping enhancements. The company will also be adding outdoor amenities including an updated pool area, barbecues, seating and outdoor gaming areas.

“The property offers significant renovation opportunity, and we look forward to physically transforming the project to improve the resident experience for our tenants,” said Tower 16 co-founder Tyler Pruett.

Buyer and seller were represented by Jesse Hudson, Trevor Koskovich and Bill Hahn of Northmarq’s Phoenix office. NorthMarq helped secure debt financing for the buyer, led by Bryan Mummaw and Bryan Liu.
