Meanwhile, in multi-family news, Newport Beach, Calif.-based MIG Real Estate has completed the acquisition of Pine Creek Ranch, a 240-unit apartment community in The Woodlands.

Located at 3600 College Park Drive, the 12-acre property features one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The apartment homes have fully equipped kitchens, full-size washers and dryers, private patios, balconies or sunrooms, as well as oversize closets and bedrooms. Community amenities include a Wi-Fi equipped clubhouse, swimming pool with beach entry, air conditioned basketball half-court, fitness center, barbecue area, billiards room, theater and business center.

Pine Creek Ranch sits within walking distance of various neighborhood retail outlets, including Starbucks and Chase Bank, and less than five miles from Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, the upscale Market Street and regional retail centers such as Pinecroft Center and The Woodlands Mall.

MIG selected Greystar, a national operator with a significant presence in the Houston market, to handle property management for Pine Creek.

This acquisition marks the company’s third investment in Texas multifamily properties, following its investment in The Cottages in Austin in 2012 and Wynhaven at Willowbrook in Houston in 2012.
