ALISO VIEJO, Calif. and RENO, Nev. (PRWEB) August 16, 2018
In their first acquisition to date, Academy West Investments (AWI), a Southern California-based real estate investment firm, has acquired Wolf Run Village and Wolf Run East, a 395-bed student housing property located two blocks from the University of Nevada, Reno campus. The new company was founded by President and CEO Blake Wettengel and COO Tanya Muro, both previously affiliated with Nelson Brothers Student Housing. They recently opened their new office in February 2018.
The acquisition also includes an adjacent five-acre parcel on which the company hopes to develop an additional project. The 185-bed Wolf Run Village is set to undergo comprehensive interior and exterior improvements. Wolf Run East — completed for the 2017 school year — will be enhanced with new common area amenities including a gym, outdoor seating areas, fire pits and an indoor recreational area.
“As our first institutional LP capital raise, we’re thrilled to have partnered with Highland Realty Capital and Blue Vista Capital Management,” said Muro. “We anticipate this to be the start of many successful opportunities ahead for us.”
