Cushman & Wakefield/NorthMarq is pleased to present Century Commons, a premier value-add investment opportunity. The property offers 153 student bedrooms (39 units) directly adjacent to Century College, Minnesota’s largest two-year community and technical college (11,000 students). Investors are offered the opportunity to acquire a strategically located, well-maintained student housing property with substantial value-add potential through kitchen renovations and light common area upgrades.
Century Commons provides students with a unique living environment that cannot be replicated in the marketplace. Furnished units are rented by-the-bedroom with lease structures catering to the academic calendar. Amenities appeal to the unique needs of students and include wireless internet, study lounge with computers and snack machines, controlled entry, video surveillance system and barbeque area.
Future ownership will be able to build on a multi-year year track record of NOI growth and benefit from a captive audience of student renters. Low long-term interest rates, continued rent growth and minimal ongoing capital requirements will make Century Commons a solid investment with strong cash-on-cash returns.
Cushman & Wakefield is pleased to present for sale, Sommerset Place Apartments, a 36-unit value-add opportunity in a tranquil pocket of Brooklyn Center, just off Highway 100 and next to Centerbrook Golf Course.
The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the South side of Lions Park and steps from Shingle Creek and the Shingle Creek Regional Trail. Sommerset Place is also conveniently located minutes from Target, Walmart Super Center, Cub Foods, CVS Pharmacy, LA Fitness and numerous national and local restaurants. The property is just 10 minutes north of downtown Minneapolis and five minutes from both Brooklyn Center High School and Middle School.
Sommerset Place is a true value-add opportunity with legitimate immediate upside. The unit-mix is predominantly 2-Bedroom units and the average in-place rent is roughly $885/Month. Comparable properties in the submarket are renting 2-Bedroom units for $1,100/Month (see rent comps on Page 37 of OM), which is achievable at Sommerset Place by implementing a light in-unit renovation plan. The current vacancy rate in the city of Brooklyn Center is just 2.0% and the area is in high demand given its close proximity to downtown Minneapolis and other local attractions.
Sommerset Place is offered free and clear of existing financing and tours will begin the week of September 5th, 2018. Please contact Robert Dulin directly to set up a tour, which will be scheduled by appointment only.
