HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – The California-based Bascom Group LLC has continued their Texas acquisition spree, acquiring a 350-unit multifamily property located in the Towne Lake master-planned community in the Cypress area.
The acquisition the Cantera at Towne Lake apartments marks Bascom’s 36th multifamily property closed in Texas.
“We underwrote over six billion in multifamily deals last year in Texas, so we’re really happy to get this closed,” said James D’Argenio, Senior Principal for Bascom. “This acquisition aligns with our investment thesis in Texas of acquiring newer-vintage assets with achievable renovation premiums located in submarkets with minimal new-supply exposure.”
Brian Eisendrath, Annie Rice, and Samantha Jay with CBRE Capital Markets sourced the Freddie Mac senior loan debt financing. David Mitchell with Newmark was the broker. James D’Argenio and Chang Liu sourced and managed the acquisition for Bascom.

The project sits on 13 acres and includes a total of 605 parking spaces. Community amenities include a leasing office, two-story clubhouse, networking center, fitness center, and two swimming pools.
