SAN ANTONIO, TX (September 21, 2016) – Electra America, a private owner-operator focused on multifamily investments, along with its partner Robbins Property Associates, have acquired Vantage at Alamo Ranch, a 288-unit apartment complex in San Antonio, Texas.

With this acquisition, Electra/Robbins’ Texas portfolio now includes over 7,000 apartment units in cities including San Antonio, Houston and Dallas. It is the company’s 29th multifamily property acquisition in the past 12 months.

The property is currently 87% occupied.

It is conveniently located next to shops, restaurants, freeways, and entertainment, such as SeaWorld San Antonio.

The bedroom floor plans offer an array of highly desirable amenities, including 9-foot ceilings, air conditioning, balcony or patio, plush carpeting, hardwood flooring, walk-in closets, among others.
