Emma Capital Adds Two More Indy Apartment Assets

Emma Capital Investments Inc. has acquired two more apartment properties in Indianapolis. The Toronto-based company paid $38.5 million for Courts I, a 148-unit community at 2000 W. 79th St., and Courts II, a 336-unit property at 8002 Harcourt Rd.

“With the addition of these properties, we currently have 1,829 units in the Indianapolis market,” about one-fifth of Emma’s total U.S. holdings, said founding partner Haya Zilberboim. Courts I was built in 1967, while Courts II dates from 1973.

With the properties having been maintained in “excellent condition,” Zilberboim added, the acquisitions represent “a great opportunity to efficiently leverage our resources to immediately focus on rent growth initiatives and capital improvement projects.”

Brian Rakowski, Emma Capital’s asset manager for the Indianapolis and Florida markets, said Courts I and II are in “a densely developed area on the employment-rich north side of Indianapolis,” which boasts an “extremely low” unemployment rate at 3.3%.
