Eugene, Ore. — A joint venture between Cardinal Group Investments and TPG Real Estate Partners (TREP) has acquired The Element Portfolio, a four-property student housing portfolio serving students attending the University of Oregon in Eugene.

The 383-bed portfolio is located within walking distance of campus. The new ownership plans to enhance the portfolio through in-unit renovations; furnishing units at three communities; and amenity space enhancements. Unit upgrades will include updated flooring, stainless appliances, new faucets and bathroom vanities, and new paint throughout.
