Berkadia San Diego arranged the $21.5 million sale of Elivia Apartments and also procured acquisition financing

Berkadia Closes Deal for Garden Apartments in San Diego’s Clairemont Neighborhood 

Berkadia arranged the sale and financing of Elivia, a 66-unit garden-style multifamily property in San Diego’s Clairemont neighborhood. Senior director Tyler Sinks and managing directors John Chu and Edward Rosen of Berkadia San Diego completed the $21.7-million sale on behalf of Seattle-based ALS Spring Mountain LLC.  

“The sale of Elivia represents the strength of the local apartment market and the attractive values that sellers are able to realize due to the abundance of capital chasing the asset class,” said Sinks. 

Berkadia secured $16 million in acquisition financing on behalf of the buyer. The three-year bridge loan was financed through Bridge Investment Group. 

Built in 1959 and located at 5385 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., Elivia features studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans with designer touches, wood-style flooring, and walk-in closets. The property has recently undergone extensive interior and exterior renovations but has remaining value-add potential with a second phase of enhancements.
