3rd Street Flats purchased by LandCap Investment Partners
Bentar Development and partner Basin Street Properties have sold the 94 unit 3rd Street Flats to LandCap Investment Partners. The upscale residential mixed use complex, which opened in December of 2016, arose from the former Kings Inn and at over 90 percent plus occupancy adds to the momentum of a revitalized downtown Reno.
“Redeveloping the Kings Inn into the lively and successful 3rd Street Flats that you see today has been a goal of ours since we moved our headquarters here in 2009,” Matt White, CEO of Basin Street Properties, said in a written statement. “The property sat vacant for over 30 years until ChiChi Bengochea of (Las Vegas-based) Bentar Development and our team were able to combine our collective vision and expertise to completely remake it as new, upscale apartments.”
The sale of the property to enables Basin Street to focus its energy on other redevelopment opportunities in the region.
