CARROLL Successfully Exits Upscale Houston Community, ARIUM Uptown West
The National Real Estate Investment Firm’s First Disposition of the Year Includes 321 Units in Texas
CARROLL, a national real estate investment firm, has successfully executed the disposition of ARIUM Uptown West, a suburban property in West Houston.
ARIUM Uptown West is a 321-unit community that was initially acquired in May 2018 using Carroll Multifamily Real Estate Fund V, LP, and has been fully managed by CARROLL for the entirety of its nearly four-year hold. The community is located less than three miles from the highly desirable Galleria/Uptown district. This area features a diverse mix of employment, entertainment, shopping hubs, and green spaces, offering residents an array of amenities nearby.
As a core-plus asset, ARIUM Uptown West added diversity to CARROLL’s investment strategy in the state at the time of acquisition. The community was acquired at an attractive basis along with opportunity to improve on-site operations. Additionally, CARROLL identified and executed strategic upgrades to the clubhouse and amenities, vastly improving the community experience for residents.
“This high-quality, infill asset featured an ideal location in a strong MSA with top-tier unit interiors,” said M. Patrick Carroll, founder and CEO of CARROLL. “The asset added a unique resident offering to our Houston portfolio and we have been pleased with its performance. After executing our business plan, we elected to monetize our investment at an optimal point in the current cycle to maximize returns for our investors.”
This transaction marks the Firm’s first disposition of 2022 and follows its acquisition of two multifamily communities in Florida earlier this month.
