ECI Group Executes Successful Sale of Revamped The Columns at Westchase to Mosaic Residential: A Triumph of Multifamily Real Estate Investment and Enhancement

We are delighted to report on a notable transaction in the multifamily real estate sphere. ECI Group has announced the successful sale of The Columns at Westchase apartment community, located at 3354 Rogerdale Road in Houston, TX, to Mosaic Residential. This signifies a significant accomplishment that reflects the dedication, insight, and immense efforts of everyone involved in the process.

The Columns at Westchase, a 318-unit community situated in the energetic heart of Houston, was built in 1999 and proudly incorporated into the ECI Group portfolio in 2018. Over the past years, the ECI team poured resources, ideas, and attention into this project resulting in a paradigm of modern, high-quality apartments. The commitment to excellence is palpable in every facet of the revamped property, from strikingly designed interiors to enhancements of community amenities.

A considerable capital investment was applied to these enhancements, which include high-end lighting, state-of-the-art flooring, sleek cabinetry, granite countertops in kitchens and bathrooms, modern plumbing fixtures, and installation of washers and dryers in all apartments – this forms a symphony of comfort, utility and aesthetic allure for the residents. Let’s not forget that a number of units also come with additional features – attached garages or carports.

Perhaps equally impressive is the community-centered focus that led to remarkable upgrades to the clubhouse and leasing office, pool, fitness center, BBQ pavilion, unit exteriors, roofs, and landscaping. This demonstrates the belief that while individual homes are important, it is the entire community experience that creates a desirable living situation.

We note with interest Scott Levitt, Chief Acquisitions Officer at ECI Group’s remark on the sale: “The ECI team is very proud of the repositioning and successful execution of our business plan at The Columns at Westchase, concluding with this successful sale. We look forward to making future investments in Houston and other major markets in Texas. Texas is a dynamic and growing state, and expanding our existing presence there is part of our strategic business plan.” This underscores a sustained commitment to identifying and unlocking robust investment opportunities in flourishing markets.

Finally, ECI’s acknowledgment of David Mitchell at Newmark for their representation clearly communicates the importance of collaboration in the multihousing industry and attributes a share of this triumph to their expertise and involvement.

In conclusion, this transaction stands as an excellent reflection of insightful investment, proactive management, and ambitious repositioning – sending a positive message to the multifamily real estate market. Not only has ECI spectacularly enhanced and repositioned The Columns at Westchase, but they’ve also reaffirmed their strategic focus on dynamic markets like Texas. We eagerly anticipate their future endeavours.
