Decron Properties Closes 208-Unit Silicon Valley Multifamily Buy


Decron Properties has acquired Willow Creek, a 208-unit multifamily community in San Jose, for $84.6 mil, or about $407k/unit.

Built in 1985, Willow Creek consists of a mix of one- and two-bedroom floor plans. All units include full-size washer and dryer, central heating and air conditioning, walk-in closets, patio or balcony, and enclosed garages or covered parking. The common areas include two resort-style pools and spas with poolside Wi-Fi access, a health and fitness center, lighted tennis court, a children's play area and landscaped courtyards.

Willow Creek represents an exceptional value-add opportunity. Decron plans to undertake a significant capital improvement program, which will include upgrading unit interiors. Common area improvements will include renovating pool areas, the fitness center, as well as new landscaping and exterior paint to enhance the curb appeal of the property.

The property is located in the neighborhood of Willow Glen, a short walk from the Fruitdale VTA light rail station. This puts residents less than a 10-minute train ride away from Google's proposed eight-million square-foot downtown San Jose Campus.

Decron was also attracted to this property because of its BMR component. The property operates under a Regulatory Agreement that requires 20 percent (42 units) of the community to be rented at (BMR) below market rents to tenants with household incomes at or below 60 percent of the Area Median Income.

"As a long-term investor, the proposed Google campus was another compelling reason for us and our investors to acquire this well-located property with long-term upside," said David Nagel President and CEO of Decron Properties.

Salvatore Saglimbeni, along with Stanford Jones, and Philip Saglimbeni from Institutional Property Advisors' (IPA) Palo Alto office, represented the seller in the transaction.

This latest deal increased the firmís investment activity for the year to $345 mil. Decron's other 2018 acquisitions include Bridgecourt, a 220-unit mixed-use community with apartments and ground floor retail in Emeryville, which closed in January, and its $173 mil acquisition of Avana 522 in Seattle last month, the largest single investment in Decron's history.

Decron has created a substantial footprint in Northern California since entering the multifamily market three years ago. With Willow Creek, the Los Angeles-based diversified real estate firm's local portfolio now totals five properties and 858 units.
