Western National Group purchased 312-unit property from Essex Property Trust


CORONA, CALIF., Dec. 21, 2012Jones Lang LaSalle Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of Parcwood Apartment Homes, a gated rental property located in the Inland Empire at 1700 Via Pacifica in Corona, CA, on behalf of Essex Property Trust. Western National Group purchased the 312-unit, garden-style rental property.

Managing Director Joe Leon and Vice President Javier Rivera led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction.

“This offering provided investors a unique opportunity to acquire a value-add property within a pristine, low-density community in sought-after Inland Empire,” said Leon. “As the property was built in 1988, the new owner has the opportunity to complete an interior renovation and obtain a rent premium of approximately $200.”

Added Rivera, “There had been no new apartment buildings over 100 units completed in Corona since 1993. This, combined with a current average occupancy rate in Corona of 94.9 percent, made this offering very attractive to investors.”

Parcwood Apartment Homes features 26 two-story garden-style apartment buildings in a gated community. Amenities include manicured landscaping walkways; a fitness center; large, tranquil pool deck with Wi-Fi; two spas; newly furnished movie theater; newly furnished gym; two tennis courts, children's playground; business center; three barbeque areas; and clubhouse with bar and catering kitchen. Its proximity to the 91 and 15 freeways provides quick access to Orange and Los Angeles counties as well as the Inland Empire and San Diego.
