Kennedy Wilson Closes $141 Mil Seattle Res Buy


Kennedy Wilson has acquired Radius, a 282-unit multifamily community in the South Lake Union submarket of Seattle, WA, for $141 mil, or about $200k/unit. The firm made the acquisition in a 50/50 joint-venture with an unnamed investment partner.

The venture invested a total of $72 mil of equity, of which $58 mil was funded from the December 2016 sale of The Grove, a 331-unit apartment community built in 1964 in San Jose.The partnership also secured a 10-year fixed-rate loan of $70 mil at a rate of 4.06%, interest-only for the first five years.

Built in 2015, Radius is a Class A community that consists of 282 apartments providing tenants a modern, amenity-rich lifestyle. Radius’ amenity package includes two rooftop decks, gaming room, fitness center, and a private resident media room.

Radius is located directly across the street from the world headquarters and main campus of Amazon and walking distance to over 10 msf of additional Amazon office space. The property is also walking distance to employers such as Facebook, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and a future 607k sf Google campus. Radius is next to many shops and restaurants, and is conveniently located near major freeways, providing quick access to the I-5, SR-99 and downtown Seattle.

“Radius is an exciting addition to our Seattle apartment portfolio” said Shem Streeter, Managing Director of Kennedy Wilson Multifamily Investments. “Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood features some of the best rental demographics in the country, including a thriving job market and close proximity to many high growth companies. Our significant presence in the Seattle market allows us to leverage our existing operational expertise all while upgrading the overall quality of our portfolio through these two transactions.”

The company now has an ownership interest in 10,430 units across 41 communities in the State of Washington.
