WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. — Granite Capital Group (GCG) has acquired The Boulders Apartments in Walnut Creek, a city located within the San Francisco Bay Area. Institutional Property Advisors’ Northern California team brokered the deal. GCG purchased the property from an undisclosed seller for $58 million. The company used proceeds from the sale of its Enclave Belle Creek apartments in Denver to fund the acquisition using a 1031 tax-deferred exchange.
The Boulders Apartments was built in 1972. The community offers 164 apartments in one- and two-bedroom layouts. Units feature washers and dryers, vinyl plank floors and kitchens with new cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. GCG assumed a $41.2 million Fannie Mae loan fixed at 4.4 percent with all interest-only payments to acquire the asset. An additional $2.3 million in partnership interest is being offered to accredited investors with the funds used to further upgrade the property and for operating reserves.
