Hamilton Zanze Sells Maybeck at the Bend Apartments in Oregon

PORTLAND, OR – February 10, 2020 – San Francisco-based real estate investment firm Hamilton Zanze is pleased to announce the sale of Maybeck at the Bend in Tigard, OR. The firm purchased the property in 2014 and executed significant value-add opportunities to reposition the 1998-vintage community with contemporary amenities and interiors to remain competitive in Portland’s amenity-rich multifamily market. Hamilton Zanze owned the property for six years, and the sale closed on February 6, 2020, marking the firm’s first disposition of the year.

Maybeck at the Bend was built in 1998 and is located at 13830 SW Chinn Lane. The property comprises 120 units across 10 residential buildings. Maybeck at the Bend’s one-, two-, and three-bedroom units average 843 square feet for a total of 101,190 rentable square feet. The property also features a clubhouse/leasing center, fitness center, outdoor pool, 24/7 package lockers, and bike storage.

“When we purchased Maybeck at the Bend, we saw a classic value-add opportunity,” said Anthony Ly, director at Hamilton Zanze. “We are thrilled with our execution of capital improvements, unit renovations and a rebrand of the property. This is a great outcome for our investors. Ira Virden and the rest of the Portland JLL team did a tremendous job on the marketing of this deal.”

During their ownership, the company improved the clubhouse and leasing office and upgraded unit interiors. Alongside the property’s physical improvements, Maybeck at the Bend was rebranded from Beef Bend Court in 2016.

Maybeck is located in Portland’s Tigard submarket, where rent growth has been robust due to strong demand as a result of the submarket’s affordability, lack of new construction, and its proximity to the market’s major economic drivers. Nike and Intel, two of Oregon’s largest employers, are situated within the submarket just 25 minutes north of the property. Additionally, Portland’s vibrant food and art culture continues to attract millennials seeking the quality of life that the Pacific Northwest provides.
