MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2010) - Wood Partners and AREA Property Partners have closed on the acquisition of Terrazas River Park Village, a 324-unit Class A property along the Miami River. The value of the off-market transaction was not disclosed.

Terrazas River Park Village consists of two sleek, contemporary towers on a 2.15-acre site along the Miami River adjacent to E. G. Sewell Park, a 10-acre natural preserve. The community is in close proximity to downtown, the rapidly expanding Miami Medical Center and the new Florida Marlins' baseball stadium, which is currently under construction. A limited pipeline of rental inventory, coupled with improving demographic trends, supports strong apartment fundamentals in the Miami area. 

The towers feature two-story soaring lobbies with open views to the park and river, a private clubhouse and a lushly landscaped pool and spa surrounded by an expansive sundeck. There is a state-of-the-art fitness center with exercise equipment and yoga/aerobic studio, along with separate men's and women's sauna/shower areas and a relaxing meditation garden.

Residences at Terrazas range from one-, two- and three-bedroom units to luxurious two-story penthouse and townhome units overlooking the Miami River. The broker on the transaction was Robert Given, executive vice president of CBRE's Multi-Housing Group.

"There was a very short gap between the find and the close on this acquisition, and the reason we were able to accelerate the process is because of our strong financial partnership with AREA," said Jay Jacobson, national acquisition director for Wood Partners.

Wood Partners is an experienced national multifamily company that has developed and managed more than $4.5 billion in real estate since its founding in 1998. This acquisition enhances the existing multifamily portfolio of Wood Partners, which launched its investment initiative earlier this year to balance its revenue platform through both new acquisitions and ongoing development efforts.
