LOS ANGELES, CA – Champion Real Estate Company announced the acquisition of a 30-unit multifamily property in the heart of Koreatown. The property, named The Bard Apartments, was purchased by an affiliate of Champion, and is located at 756 S. Normandie Avenue.
The property is currently almost fully occupied and subject to the City of Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance (“RSO”). It consists of 23 studios and 7 one-bedroom units.
“The Bard Apartments is a great value-add investment in a core Los Angeles market,” states Parker Champion, Senior Vice President. “The investment allows for immediate cash flow and based on our prior success with RSO properties, we believe that we can create strong value-add returns.”
Prior to acquisition, several units had been renovated as part of a modest value-add improvement program. In addition to continuing to improve the units as they become available, Champion intends to expand on this effort by improving the curb appeal, common areas, and property amenities.
