MANHATTAN, NY – March 9, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Salmanson Capital, LLC, a Manhattan-based real estate firm that specializes in the acquisition and repositioning of student housing assets, has acquired an off-campus student housing complex serving University of Nebraska undergraduate students for $7.65 million.
Located in Lincoln, Nebraska, Claremont Park Apartments is a 103,000 square-foot, eight-building apartment complex that includes 238 beds in 88 separate units. The complex, which is 100% leased, is four blocks from campus and offers residents more comforts and amenities than other off-campus housing options in Lincoln.
“Claremont Park Apartments is widely regarded as the most desirable residential option for students within walking distance of campus,” said David E. Salmanson, President of Salmanson Capital. “The property has been extremely well maintained by the previous owners and residents have access to a pool, basketball court, fitness center, covered parking and other amenities. We plan to upgrade the infrastructure even further to ensure our residents’ enjoyment of the property and add value to the asset.”
Since acquiring the complex, Salmanson Capital has begun wiring all units for cable and Internet and launched a newly-designed website. A newly-created affiliate of Salmanson Capital, University Capital Management, LLC, will manage the property.
The new acquisition brings Salmanson Capital’s student housing portfolio to 344 apartments containing 942 beds, including Campus Hill Apartments, a 256-apartment, 704-bed rental complex at Syracuse University.
Salmanson Capital is aggressively seeking to acquire additional off-campus student housing properties. For more information on Salmanson Capital, visit www.salmansoncapital.com.
