Austin Investor Buys 308-Unit Value-Add Multifamily Community

Newport is a 308-unit multifamily community in Irving.
IRVING, TEXAS — CBRE Capital Markets’ Investment Properties has arranged the sale of Newport, a 308-unit multifamily community in the north Dallas suburb of Irving. The PPA Group, based in Austin, purchased the asset from Shreveport, La.-based Fortis Co. for an undisclosed price.

Chris Deuillet of CBRE’s Dallas office represented the seller. The 238,784-square-foot asset, located at 3466 N. Beltline Road, was built in 1981. The Class B complex includes one- and two-bedroom units with an average size of 775 square feet. Newport was 96 percent occupied at closing.

Two hundred units have been upgraded with modern wall texturing, customized kitchen cabinet doors, black appliances and faux-wood flooring in select areas of each unit. Other capital improvements were completed on the exterior and in common areas between 2010 and 2012. The buyer plans to complete the remaining unit remodels, add a dog park and increase the size of the play area.
