The apartments in the portfolio are almost 100 percent leased, according to Alfred Sanzari.

The largest of the assets, The Ivanhoe, is located at 130 Overlook Ave. in Hackensack. Containing 197 units over 21 stories, the high-rise community offers a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments along with a three-bedroom penthouse suite.

Another one of the properties, Nottingham Manor, found at 186 Nottingham Court in Montvale, includes a 176-unit mix of one- and two-bedroom units, containing between 700 and 1,036 square feet. The 12-building garden community was constructed in 1964 and offers residents access to laundry facilities and 232 parking spaces. The asset is 98.9 percent occupied, according to Yardi Matrix data from March 2018.
