Phoenix, AZ [March 8, 2022] – Korman Communities, in partnership with RXR, has completed the purchase of its first property in the Phoenix market. The brand new, 348-unit, seven-story, professionally managed, Class A property boasting 60,000 square feet of amenity space, AVE Phoenix Terra, offers a unique flexible-stay living solution in Downtown Phoenix.
“We are focused on growing our AVE portfolio of first-class residential properties in key growth markets across the U.S. This acquisition represents the first of many new ventures in Phoenix,” says Bradley Korman, co-CEO of the Philadelphia-area-based Korman Communities. “We are proud to have RXR as our partner on this venture, as our organizations are aligned on values and visions for the future.”
“We’re proud to partner with the Korman organization in providing our residents with a world-class living experience filled with amenity-rich programming, state-of-the-art technology, and ‘five-star’ service,” says Scott Rechler, Chairman and CEO of RXR.
