Newmark has arranged the sale and financing of South Congress Commons, a 68-unit value-add multifamily asset located minutes from Downtown Austin, Texas. The asset was acquired by an affiliate of Narrow Road Group, an Austin-based investor, operator and developer of local residential real estate.
Newmark Director Chase Easley was retained by seller Firm Capital to market the sale, which resulted in Newmark’s second successful closing of this asset. Vice Chairman Anthony Tarter of Newmark’s Debt, Equity & Structured Finance group helped arrange the financing on behalf of the buyer.
Located at 126 W. Alpine Road, South Congress Commons is a garden-style property offering an array of amenities to its residents, including a fully fenced dog park, a courtyard space, an outdoor grilling and picnic area, laundry facilities and spacious studio and one-bedroom floor plans. New ownership of the property has the opportunity to revamp both unit interiors and community amenities, positioning it to compete effectively with newer properties in the market.
Situated on 1.98 acres, South Congress Commons is conveniently located just over two miles from Austin’s CBD and enjoys proximity to the city’s South Congress (SoCo) district, one of the county’s most famous corridors lined with vibrant nightlife, retail boutiques and live music venues. The property also benefits from a strong local economic landscape, with an average household income exceeding $111,800 and an average home value of $523,704 within a three-mile radius, according to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2023.
