CBRE has completed the sale of Pinnacle South Mountain located at 5151 E. Guadalupe Road in Phoenix, Ariz. Pinnacle South Mountain is a luxury apartment community which consists of 552 units. The asset commanded a sale price of $63 million.
Sean Cunningham, Tyler Anderson, Asher Gunter and Matt Pesch with CBRE’s Phoenix office negotiated the transaction. The buyer was FPA Multifamily of San Francisco, Calif. The seller was Palo Alto, Calif.-based Essex Property Trust.
“Pinnacle South Mountain offers investors an excellent opportunity in the highly sought after Ahwatukee master planned community,” said CBRE’s Anderson. “The Ahwatukee area consistently sees some of the highest multifamily demand in the Valley and by implementing an interior upgrade program the buyer has an opportunity to generate significant rental growth and see a solid return on investment.”
Pinnacle South Mountain benefits from proximity to the 16,000-acre South Mountain Park, which offers residents sprawling mountain views as well as lifestyle amenities in the form of hiking and biking trails. The property is also located near Ahwatukee Foothills Town Center, which provides residents more than 1.7 million square feet of retail amenities.
