Troy, Mich.-based Hayman Co. has completed the acquisition of The Lodge at Shadowlake, a 518-unit garden apartment community in West Houston.
Located at 12360 Richmond Ave., the property is conveniently positioned between two of Houston’s strongest employment centers, the Westchase Business District and Houston’s I-10 Energy Corridor. Residents enjoy easy access to the retail amenities on Westheimer Road and proximity to the Westpark Tollway and Beltway 8.
The Lodge at Shadowlake features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes with nine-foot ceilings, crown molding, computer desks and washer/dryers. The complex also offers an attractive, park-like setting, as well as an updated amenity package including a business center, swimming pool, fitness center and movie theater.
The new ownership plans to implement a value-add program to enhance curb appeal, improve management and drive revenues at the property. Upgrades will include the renovation and remodeling of unit interiors, building exteriors and amenity areas.
Privately owned Hayman Co. owns more than 12,000 multifamily units. Over the past 12 months, the company has acquired 3,031 apartment units nationally, with a capitalized value of $269 million.
Meanwhile, The Richland Cos. has acquired Fairmont PH Business Park, a two-building industrial complex in Houston’s premier southeast submarket.
“Fairmont PH provides Richland access to a high-barrier-to-entry market in an exceedingly desirable location, due to the expansion of the Panama Canal and Houston Ship Channel enlargement,” said Edna Meyer-Nelson, president & CEO. “With its close proximity to the Port of Houston, it is a critical locale for energy and engineering companies, which are driving Houston to become the next gateway city.”
The 66,654-square-foot property is located on a 4.94-acre pad at 11810 Fairmont Parkway and 13501 Bay Area Blvd. Built in 2008, the state-of-the-art, tilt-wall business park offers 28-foot clear heights, dock-high loading capabilities and ample parking.
At the time of closing, the complex was fully leased to four tenants, including Worley Parsons, Orr Safety, the General Services Administration and Coastal HVAC Supply.
Fairmont PH is Richland’s 13th property in Houston. With this acquisition, Richland now owns and manages 1.6 million square feet of commercial real estate property in the market. Richland will handle management at Fairmont PH, as it does with its entire portfolio of 33 properties in four states throughout the Southwestern United States.
