Though much of the recent sales activity in Santa Clara has come from commercial or technology deals, multifamily real estate continues to garner plenty of interest as well. In a recent deal, a 92-unit apartment complex in Santa Clara was sold for $53 million – approximately $576,086 per unit – earlier this month, according to public records. The seller was USA Properties Fund and the buyer was listed as an entity affiliated with Zurich Alternative Asset Management.
The property is located at 190 N. Winchester Blvd. Nearby attractions include shops, grocery markets, pharmacies and parks, according to the property’s website. Directly south is Santana Row and Westfield Valley Fair and directly west is Pruneridge Golf Course. The complex is located near essential mass transit systems and major commuting corridors including Caltrain, VTA light rail and bus lines, Interstates 280, 880, and 680, U.S. Highway 101, and State Routes 85, 87, and 17. Downtown San Jose is also only 10 minutes from the complex.
The five-story building was constructed in 2020 on a 1.86-acre site, according to property records. In total, the building is approximately 116,716 square feet.
Santana Terrace offers open-concept, one- and two-bedroom homes with amenities like stainless steel appliances, hardwood-style flooring, modern cabinetry, a keyless entry system, and private balconies with storage, according to the property’s website.
