“This project is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the move-up buyers looking for a high quality townhouse at a very affordable price,” commented Robert Hart, president of KW Multifamily Management Group.
The acquisition represents the third recent transaction with Bank of America for Kennedy Wilson and its partners, following the purchases of the 180-unit Noho 14 project in North Hollywood in June of 2010 and the 167-unit downtown L.A. adaptive reuse project, Santee Village, in November of 2010.
Completed last year, Toscana was formerly known as The Villas at Sherman Place and consists of three- and four-story townhomes ranging in size from 1,900 to 2,050 sq. ft. Each unit has two or three bedrooms in addition to a two- or three-car attached garage with extra storage and washer-dryer hook-ups. The property also includes secured gated entrances, a swimming pool and playground.“This is a very upscale luxury project built in one of the best locations in western San Fernando Valley,” said Stuart Cramer, president of KW Residential Group. “We are very pleased to be able to bring a project in the mid to high $400,000s to the market at this time.”
