Built in 1980, the two-story multifamily community features four floor plans ranging from a 615-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit to a spacious 967-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit. Community amenities include on-site maintenance and management, a fitness center, a dog park, a clubhouse equipped with a kitchen for private functions and a pool area with grills and a spa.

“The Cobblestone Apartments is a unique multifamily asset located in the coveted North Central Phoenix area not far from the Taiwan Semiconductor project,” said Canter. “The new owner will benefit by upgrading all of the unit interiors, thereby bringing rental rates in line with the higher levels that the submarket has experienced over the past years.”
