Newmark announced the $93.5 million sale of 44 Monroe, a 184-unit luxury multifamily community in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Newmark Executive Managing Director Brad Goff, Senior Managing Director Brett Polachek and Managing Director Chris Canter represented the seller, HSL Asset Management, in the sale to an undisclosed buyer.
44 Monroe is a luxury multifamily community built in 2008 and located in the epicenter of Phoenix, Arizona’s vibrant downtown. It is Arizona’s tallest residential tower. The property was originally built as a condominium project, ensuring exceptional build quality as well as unique units and upgrades. Community amenities include a fitness center, newly renovated pool and spa, enclosed balconies/patios, conference room and clubroom.
“With a prime location in the center of downtown Phoenix and exceptional build quality, this property generated significant investor interest,” said Goff. “New ownership will have the opportunity to increase value-add potential via unit interior and amenity upgrades to capitalize on the remarkable rent growth the Phoenix area has experienced over the past few years.”
44 Monroe offers a convenient five-minute drive to the I-10 freeway and just a 10-minute drive to Sky Harbor International Airport. Residents also have access to the Light Rail just steps away from the property. With over 800,000 square feet of retail space in Downtown Phoenix, residents can access a diverse mix of local boutiques, restaurants, bars, lounges and retail stores.
