L.A. based Orion Real Estate Partners (“Orion”) announced this week that it has closed on the acquisition of Eagle Crest Apartments, a garden-style apartment community in Lakewood. The price was not disclosed.

The coterminous loans have over five years of remaining term and are interest only. Apartment Management Consultants (“AMC”) has been engaged to provide property management services on behalf of Orion.
Orion is actively pursuing additional affordable workforce housing properties in markets with strong demographic growth and solid multifamily market fundamentals including Austin, Dallas, Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Phoenixand Portland.
