A 56-unit apartment complex in Anaheim has been sold to an unidentified investor for $15.6 million or $279,000 per unit, according to CBRE.
CBRE’s Dan Blackwell represented the buyer and the seller.
“The Orange County market is very competitive right now, and we are working with many property investors on both on- and off-market opportunities to help execute multifamily trades,” Blackwell said in a statement.
The two-story property called The OC Apartment Homes at 1251 N. Placentia Ave. was built in 1973 and sits on 2.35 acres. The buildings include one- and two-bedroom floorplans. One-bedroom units rent for around $1,525, according to various rental websites. Amenities include a pool and a shared laundry facility.
The CBRE team said it has helped the buyer acquire a multifamily portfolio with a combined 84 units valued at $24 million. This was the team’s 80th Anaheim sale.

Casey Lesher with the Newport Beach office of Coldwell Banker Realty is sponsoring Kure It Cancer Research’s Big Dill Pickleball Tournament on Sunday, Aug. 22, at the Tennis Club at Newport Beach.
The tournament will include live entertainment, a comfort station, food, drinks and an opportunity drawing. There are two forms of play available: the Competitive Schedule as well as the Fun and Friendly Schedule.
Kure It was started in Newport Beach about 10 years ago by Barry Hoeven, founder and CEO of Irvine-based Westport Properties and US Storage. Noting there was little funding for research, Hoeven, who was battling kidney cancer, used his Newport business connections to create Kure It to help bridge the underfunded cancer research gap.
To date, Kure It has granted $11 million in direct funds to cancer centers at UCI, UCLA, USC and City of Hope.

The design firm said it “answered the call for help” from the Architecture Department at OCC, whose students have been especially affected by the pandemic. With help from the American Institute of Architects Orange County division, LPA said it would refurbish and donate 50 decommissioned LPA laptops.
“It’s important to LPA to help mentor and support the next generation of architecture and engineering professionals,” said Ozzie Tapia, an associate at LPA. “The pandemic has hit many college students and their families hard, and LPA is honored to help reduce some of the financial burden.”
Thirteen LPA volunteers removed outdated batteries, installed new ones, reset the computers to factory settings and installed the necessary software for students’ use. The refurbished computers will be given to students in time for the 2021-2022 school year.
