Portland, OR (October 20, 2022) – SR Watt Company, a Southern California-based real estate investment and management firm, has announced the acquisition of two class A suburban Portland multifamily properties including the 101-unit Cannery Row, at 22550 SW Highland Drive, Sherwood, and the 87-unit Westline, at 4545 SW Angel Avenue, Beaverton.
The seller, Madison Park Financial Corp. was represented by JLL Capital Markets Investment Sales Advisory team of Ira Virden, Carrie Kahn and Frank Solorzano. SR Watt represented itself in the $60 million portfolio acquisition.
“The Pacific Northwest is the ideal market for SR Watt to expand its multifamily footprint thanks to its strong market fundamentals that include migrating population and high-growth employment in a suburban metropolitan area. Plus, we see great opportunity to enhance placemaking opportunities in these communities that further enhance resident quality of life,” said Courtney Trujillo, president, SR Watt.
