Gig Harbor, Washington , Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has closed on a 138 unit entitled apartment site in Port Orchard, WA for $1,455,000.
Located in Kitsap County, Washington, the Bridgeview project is a future 138 unit, 3-story garden style apartment complex scheduled to begin construction in April 2022. The project is ideally located within a 15-minute drive to both the Southworth and Bremerton ferries to the Seattle core job market and is a short drive to the Kitsap Naval Base, a major contributor to a robust defense economy with approximately 40,000 employees tied to the military and defense industry in the area.
“It is our objective to complete construction of Bridgeview in 2023 and sell the project upon completion. If existing market conditions remain constant, we anticipate generating approximately $46 million from the sale of the project. The significant appreciation in rental rates over the past year in our target markets, combined with record low capitalization rates and our inventory of entitled apartment property has created a significant opportunity for the company within the multi-family vertical,” stated Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor Custom Homes.
