Cadence Apartments is a 195-unit, Class A multi-family project located in the booming Des Moines submarket of Johnston. Constructed in 2016 and 2017, the property offers a top-tier amenity base, best-in-class finishes in select units and is within walking distance to Johnston Middle School and the under construction $100MM Johnston Town Center. The property was acquired in March 2021 with a plan to improve overall day-to-day management, eliminate lease expiration irregularities and upgrade select unit finishes over time. The property offered stabilized, in-place cash flows at time of acquisition and also included the assumption of an 15-year existing life insurance company loan and four years remaining of a TIF economic incentive totaling over $900,000.
