The 286-unit multifamily community is positioned on over five acres and is characterized by its vibrant, mid-century influenced architecture and recently modernized common area amenities.  The property is in an excellent location at 5145 N 7th St., just north of Seventh Street and Camelback Road.  Sterling Real Estate Partners acquired the property in June 2018 and invested $2 million into the property. Sterling converted the courtyards into an outdoor gaming area and a state-of-the-art indoor fitness center with outdoor yoga yard, transformed a dilapidated tennis court to a dog park, and did a complete remodel of the leasing office and clubhouse. Unit interiors were also renovated with modern style finishes, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. 

Sterling President, David Zeff stated, “This was a very gratifying investment, and we are excited for more opportunities like this one.  Due to the extensive capital improvements, Seventh is now up to date with current multi-family trends.”  The implementation of Sterling’s 6-point value add strategy allowed them to sell the property for $134,000/unit. “Sterling invested a great deal of equity to improve the quality of living for each resident,” said Zeff. This acquisition was brokered by Cliff David and Steve Gebing at IPA.
