Portland, Oregon: Bangkok investor buys Yard apartment tower for $127M


Block 67 LLC closed on its sale of Portland, Oregon's recently completed 21-story, 284-unit Yard apartment tower to Bangkok-based investment firm and first-time investor Land and Houses.


Elizabeth Davis, IPA executive director, exclusively represented the seller, Block 67 LLC. Pete Shelton and Kim Grant, both located in IPA’s Seattle, Washington office, assisted Davis.


Philip Saglimbeni, an IPA executive director, along with Davis, procured the buyer, Land and Houses, a subsidiary of a Bangkok-based investment firm and first-time investor in the Portland market.


The development of this asset was completed in August 2016, sold pre-stabilization with 50 percent of the apartments leased, and is the largest multifamily sale to date in Portland’s urban core.


“This is a pivotal transaction in Portland, firmly establishing the emerging Central Eastside neighborhood as not only a desirable place live, but the next place for institutional and international buyers to invest,” Davis said.


Yard is part of the Portland Development Commission’s Burnside Bridgehead Master Plan, an effort to revitalize entrepreneurial development in Portland. The architect is Skylab Architecture, which is known for ground-breaking design.


Yard is located at 22 N.E. 2nd Avenue in a former industrial neighborhood in Portland’s east side. The building has an elevated podium eco-roof that engages the pedestrian platform on the Burnside Bridge.


Yard includes 26,000 square feet of commercial retail space and a public parking garage, and it holds a LEED silver certification.

Yard’s studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments feature city and river views, European style appliances, stainless steel quilted backsplash and condo-quality finishes. Reclaimed wood from the original Pendleton office building in downtown Portland was used for shelving.
