VANCOUVER, WA- Real Estate Capital Partners (RECAP) of New York City has acquired a 200-unit apartment community in Vancouver, WA in a joint venture with West Coast-based Holland Partners. The Class B garden apartment property, called Arnada Pointe, was built between 1995 and 1997.

The purchase marks a recapitalization of an existing Holland Partners led joint venture that acquired Arnada Pointe in 2008. RECAP, through its Metropolitan Opportunity Fund III, LP, created a new JV with Holland Partners to recapitalize the asset.

This is the 14th investment for the RECAP Fund, which has acquired a geographically diverse portfolio of apartment development joint ventures and value-add acquisitions. RECAP has worked successfully with Holland Partners’ principal Clyde Holland for over 16 years, partnering on both ground-up developments and acquisition of value-add multifamily properties.

RECAP and Holland Partners have previously partnered in the acquisition of six multifamily communities in the Western United States with a total of more than 2,100 units and total capitalization of over $220 million.

“Arnada Pointe presents an excellent opportunity to invest in the greater Portland area and further our relationship with Holland Partners who is well-versed in the Vancouver market,” said Stephen Henry, RECAP. Arnada Pointe is conveniently located near the intersection of I-5 and SR500, with easy access to both Portland and downtown Vancouver.

Just south of the community, Main Street leads to Vancouver’s revitalized downtown with a multitude of businesses, entertainment, and dining options surrounding a historic city square. Just five minutes from the community, Jantzen Beach Center is undergoing a $50 million redevelopment to provide a Class A retail destination.
