The site is also near major transportation thoroughfares such as the I-10 Highway, Loop 303, and US-85 highways. Patrick Burch, partner at ABI Multifamily, says, “FirstStreet at the Ballpark is a phenomenal development opportunity for the buyer, who was looking for both build-to-rent development opportunities as well as Opportunity Zone sites. This property fits the bill for both. We are currently selling multiple deals in the Goodyear/Avondale submarkets for build-to-rent and market rate apartment developments, as the Southwest Valley continues to be a hotbed for developers looking to be a part of the large economic growth we are seeing in the area.”
ABI Multifamily’s Patrick Burch and John Klocek represented the buyer and seller in this transaction. The buyer is Harvard Investments, an Arizona-based Real Estate Firm.
