Two-Property Multifamily

“Scottsdale 5th & Oaktree provided a unique opportunity to acquire a pair of infill assets that were privately owned for 20 years. Scottsdale 5th offered an irreplaceable location on the doorstep of old town Scottsdale and Oaktree was a rare untouched 1984 asset with strong value-add upside,” said Cheyne.

Scottsdale 5th Avenue was built in 1968 and features 59-units averaging 416 SF. Located at 6405 E. Indian School Road in Scottsdale, the property affords convenient access to Old Town Scottsdale. Oak Tree was built in 1984 and features 76 units with 100% classic unit interiors. Located at 3620 E. McDowell Road in Phoenix, the property affords convenient access to multiple economic hubs including Sky Harbor, Camelback Corridor, Downtown Phoenix & Tempe.
