NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Oct. 27, 2016 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap specializing in serving institutional and major private real estate investors, is pleased to announce the sale of Woodley Plaza Apartments, an 85-unit multifamily community in Northridge, California. The $21.25 million sales price equates to $250,000 per unit.

“Built in 1971, Woodley Plaza provides new ownership with a proven-value add opportunity with an established premium,” says IPA executive director Greg Harris. “Six apartments received deluxe renovations in 2016 and are achieving a significant premium over in-place rents. The opportunity remains to bring the 47 non-renovated interiors and 32 partially renovated units up to high-end luxury specifications.”

Harris, and IPA senior directors Kevin Green and Joseph Grabiec represented the seller, Prime Residential and procured the buyer, 4D Development & Investment.

The property is located approximately five miles from the Northridge Metrolink Station, which brings commuters to downtown Los Angeles in less than 40 minutes. Five nearby freeways give residents access to San Fernando Valley employment hubs and job centers in Santa Clarita Valley, Conejo Valley and Simi Valley.

“The San Fernando Valley is poised for economic growth, thanks to a diversified employment base that includes the healthcare, entertainment, business services, aerospace, foreign trade and advanced manufacturing industries,” notes Green. “Average household income in the Valley has grown by 32 percent since 2000 and is projected to grow an additional 15 percent by 2019.”
