AUSTIN, Texas, July 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rastegar Property, a vertically-integrated real estate investment firm focused on value-add and development in all asset classes across the United States, today announced its acquisition of two Austin-area multifamily residential complexes, totaling 38 residential units and over 33,000 square feet of space.

The Zilker Place Apartments at 2017 Bluebonnet Lane are in South Austin’s Zilker Park neighborhood, and contain 23 units and over 14,000 square feet. The property is near Zilker Metropolitan Park, home to Barton Springs Pool and the Austin City Limits Music Festival and provides residents with access to additional employment and entertainment options in the South Lamar, South Congress, South 1st and Downtown Austin districts. It is also near several higher education campuses, including the University of Texas at Austin, St. Edward’s University and several Austin Community College campuses.

A full renovation of the property is underway, with the potential for redevelopment to meet the growing demand for Austin’s city and suburban residential space for the city’s growing population of young professionals.

“The city of Austin is undergoing sustained population, employment and rent growth, and Rastegar looks to capitalize on this opportunistic environment by identifying and acquiring small and large multifamily properties that we can add value to,” said Ari Rastegar, CEO of Rastegar Property. “These two particular properties, best categorized as vintage and un-renovated multifamily housing, fit our acquisition criteria of being located in high-growth regions with the potential to flourish following strategic renovation. As an Austin-headquartered real estate company, we are acutely aware of the current real estate investment opportunity stemming from explosive economic and population growth as more prominent employers make this city their corporate home.”
