Wednesday, July 10th, 2019

West Shore LLC, a fully integrated multifamily real estate investment firm, announced the acquisition of Riverwalk Apartments, a 307-unit apartment community located on 16 acres in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

The purchase, West Shore’s fourth major acquisition in North and South Carolina, is part of the Riverwalk Development, a 1,008-acre, $600 million master-planned, mixed-use community offering apartment buildings, home sites and retail space strategically located along the banks of the Catawba River in York County, N.C.

“Our latest acquisition exemplifies our strategy of investing in properties in high growth locations with a strong future,” said Steven P. Rosenthal, Chairman of West Shore LLC. “Riverwalk Apartments is a high-quality asset located in a tightening rental environment with rapid economic growth occurring along the I-77 corridor.”

Riverwalk joins Aurea Station, Ansley Falls and Reserve at Mill Landing as West Shore properties in the Carolinas. Much like the others, Riverwalk offers comprehensive amenities and spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with top-of market unit interiors and custom features in keeping with today’s selective renter profile. The community is also in walking distance to expanding retail and lifestyle amenities and was recently completed in two phases in 2016 and 2018.

“Riverwalk is supremely positioned in the nucleus of new development in York County,” said Lee E. Rosenthal, West Shore’s President. “Population growth has generated a need for continuously improving multifamily units and lifestyle amenities, and Riverwalk provides ideal access to thriving and expanding employment opportunities.”
