Another apartment complex in north Seattle recently changed hands.
On Tuesday, March 27th, the 61-unit Park 3025 Apartments in Lake City sold for $17.75 million, or approximately $290,983 per unit, according to public records filed with King County. The buying entity shares the same address as Mercer Island-based ACME Realty, an owner and operator of real estate in the Puget Sound region. The seller was Core 3025 LLC, an entity affiliated with Michael J. Henry—whose signature appears on public documents—who is the principal at Dallas, Texas-based Jaybird Holdings.
Mark Zoffel and Kyle Yamamoto of Seattle-based CBRE Capital Markets represented the seller in the transaction.
Core 3025 LLC is making a significant investment on the property, which it acquired for $8.9 million in 2014, according to public documents.
The 4-story Park 3025 Apartments, located at 3025 NE 137th St., was built in 1982 and contains 61 units, according to the property listing on apartments.com.

Additionally, the property is less than a mile from Washington State Route 522 and roughly half a mile from the edge of Lake Washington.
