San Marcos, Texas — 29th Street Capital (29SC), a privately-held real estate investment and advisory firm, has acquired The Villagio Apartments, a student housing community located at 1850 Aquarena Springs Drive near Texas State University in San Marcos.
The company plans to invest $2 million into the property to upgrade the apartment interiors, exteriors and amenities. Developed in 2005, the 180-unit, 492-bed community features two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments. Each unit has a bathroom for each bedroom, private patios and full-size washers/dryers.
On-site amenities include a resort-style pool with fountains and hot tub, outdoor grilling areas, 24-hour fitness center, clubhouse, private study center, movie theater, and volleyball and basketball courts. At the time of sale, the property was 100 percent pre-leased for the upcoming academic year.
