Portland –Jan. 22, 2021 – CBRE Capital Markets’ Debt & Structured Finance team in San Francisco has arranged a $13.8 million acquisition loan for the purchase of a multifamily community, The Township, in Canby, Ore. 

Andrew Behrens and Jesse Weber of CBRE arranged the 10-year, fixed rate loan on behalf of the buyer, San Francisco-based multifamily investment firm Glencrest Group. Josh McDonald with CBRE’s Portland office represented the seller.  

Located at 700 SE 5th Avenue, The Township is made up of 92 total units across 13 buildings and was 98 percent leased at the time of sale. The unit mix is comprised of one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans with an average unit size of 987 square feet. Apartment amenities include decks, patios and washer-dryer units. Community amenities include a clubhouse, fitness center, playground, storage units and 166 parking spaces. The site is located approximately 25 miles south of Portland. 

“Glencrest is excited to expand our growing portfolio into Oregon and to close our third acquisition within the last six months,” said John Adair, managing partner of Glencrest Group. “The Township exemplifies the type of asset we seek for our Generations program, which is building a collection of quality multifamily properties for long-term ownership by individual investors.” 

Adair added, “We aim to be a counterparty of choice in the apartment business and are pleased that this transaction involved repeat business with the seller, lender and advisory teams.” 

“The Township is a stable asset with significant upside. This community allows residents to live in an ideal mix of small-town living, with easy highway access to all the comforts of modern city life and greater Wilsonville, one of Portland’s largest job centers,” said Mr. Behrens, vice chairman, CBRE.
