ELMSFORD—A joint venture of affiliates of Norfolk, VA-based Harbor Group International, LLC and Azure Partners of New York City has acquired the Avalon Green multifamily community in Elmsford for $306 million.
The joint venture announced on July 25 that it would further implement a $9.2-million capital improvement program across the 617-unit community to refresh amenities and common areas and modernize select interior units.
Built in three phases in 1995, 2012 and 2016 by AvalonBay Communities, the property features a mix of townhouses, apartment homes and stacked flats. A portion of HGI’s capital improvement program will focus on updating the interiors in Phase I and Phase II of the community to include contemporary finishes.
“Avalon Green is an attractive fit for HGI’s multifamily portfolio given its strategic location between several employment centers and transportation options along with the significant value-add potential of the community,” said Richard Litton, President, HGI. “We see long-term demand fundamentals for the Westchester area as renters seek housing in suburban markets.”
Amenities offered at the Avalon Green property include two saltwater swimming pools, a clubhouse and resident lounge and detached garages.
Last week, affiliates of Harbor Group International acquired Miro Brickell, a 372-unit, Class A multifamily property in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami, for $184.5 million.
