The Bascom Group of Irvine, Calif., has expanded its Las Vegas presence with the purchase of a 288-unit apartment complex in Henderson.
The group’s $300 million, Oaktree-managed acquisition fund closed March 24 on Villa Serena at 325 N. Gibson Road.
The county assessor’s website reported the price as $32.4 million.
This is the seventh multifamily acquisition nationwide for the venture, and the second in Nevada. The first was The Edge at Traverse Point, a 296-unit, Class A community at 1131 Wigwam Parkway, that the group bought in August.
The fund’s other properties are in Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Texas.
Separately, Bascom has bought five other local apartment complexes in the last two years.
“The Las Vegas market has begun a strong recovery and we expect to close a number of other acquisitions this year,” said Scott McClave, senior principal of transactions and finance.
In announcing its latest buy, Bascom noted that Villa Serena is near the 155-acre Union Village site, where Valley Health System plans a hospital and other developers are looking at residential, entertainment and retail space, as well as a senior retirement community and a civic and cultural arts center.
Villa Serena consists of 45 percent one-bedroom units, 50 percent two-bedroom and 5 percent three-bedroom units.
Tim Whiting, Bascom’s senior vice president of operations, said the company plans upgrades to common areas and interiors “to make it comparable to higher quality rental properties in the submarket.”
Los Angeles-based Mesa West Capital provided financing to acquire the property. The debt financing was sourced by Brian Eisendrath and Brandon Smith of CBRE Capital Markets. Spencer Ballif and Jeffrey Swinger of CBRE represented the seller on the transaction.
