The V Apartments Change Ownership

The V Apartments at City Vista have recently been sold by Lowe Enterprises to Gables Residential. Gables Residential is a privately held REIT owned by a closed-end fund managed by a joint venture between ING Clarion and Lehman Brothers. Gables Residential owns, develops and manages multi-family communities and mixed-use developments in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Houston, South Florida, Southern California, and metropolitan Washington, D.C. Additionally, it has third-party management operations in the Chicago, New York, Boston, Phoenix, Seattle and Central and North Florida markets.

The property page on the Gables website uses the brand Gables City Vista rather than putting “The V” out the at the forefront of the marketing.

Kettler had been providing property managing services for Lowe and it’s unlikely that will continue much longer. For now the website created by Kettler for the property (www.thevatcityvista.com) is still alive and well.

T-Mobile closed

Many have you noticed that the T-Mobile at City Vista has closed and sent a FYI to the blog’s email address. I have heard the full backstory but didn’t fully absorb it. Something about the area developer for T-Mobile declaring bankruptcy and that in turn impacting the franchisee?

It’s probably for the best. I expect that Edens & Avant will find a more inspiring tenant for that 1500 SF retail bay. Certain food uses will not be permitted due to the exclusions agreement Safeway has in their lease – so don’t expect a bakery, GNC or coffee shop, etc… but something interesting will materialize.
