A property in Cupertino foothills has a new owner, but the buyer and the seller are old hands in multifamily investment across the region. San Mateo-based Prometheus Real Estate purchased the 94-unit McClellan Terrace apartment complex for $52 million, or $553,191 per unit. The seller was an entity associated with San Jose-based Doris S. Davis, according to public documents reviewed by The Registry.

McClellan Terrace is located at 7954 McClellan Rd., in Cupertino, just east of State Route 85. The property features 94 two-bedroom apartments that rent for $3,800 per month, according to the property’s website on The property also features amenities such as a pool, fitness center, laundry facilities and a playground. The complex was built in 1971.
