AUSTIN, Apr. 19, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged the sale of Caliza, a 270-unit, Class A, garden-style apartment community in the northwest Austin suburb of Cedar Park, Texas.

JLL worked on behalf of the seller, Internacional Realty, and Virtus Real Estate Capital acquired the asset.

Built in 2020, Caliza features one-, two- and three-bedroom units with modern finishes, wood-style flooring, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, LED lighting, 14-foot ceilings, private yards and direct access garages. The property features a best-in-class amenity package, including a recently renovated resort-style swimming pool, expansive fitness center and group exercise room, outdoor pavilion with an exterior fireplace and a clubhouse with a catering kitchen.

Situated at 12638 Ridgeline Blvd., the property is within proximity to several highly regarded neighborhoods, such as Anderson Mill, Cypress Mill and Avery Ranch, and is surrounded by some of the city’s most prominent economic drivers, including Austin’s premier mixed-use hub, The Domain and Dell Technology’s campus. The community provides residents with access throughout the metroplex via Highway 183 and Highway 45 and is just six minutes from Westwood High School, one of Austin’s premier high schools known for top-rated academics. Additionally, Caliza is a short drive from Lake Travis, one of the top lakes in the state.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales and Advisory team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Ryan McBride and Robert Arzola.

“We are excited to add Caliza to our growing portfolio. This acquisition exemplifies Virtus’ investment strategy of finding well-located, institutional quality opportunities in markets with long-term secular growth tailwinds,” said Christopher Kott, Managing Director at Virtus.
