(SAN JOSE, CA) – Hines, the global real estate investment, development, and property manager, announced that Hines Global Income Trust, Inc. (“HGIT”) has acquired Hanover Diridon, a Class-A multifamily asset located in San Jose, California. With a diversified portfolio of global assets, this acquisition strengthens HGIT’s robust living sector allocation and expands its presence in California. Willowick Residential, Hines’ multifamily property management firm, which manages three other assets in the Bay Area, will assume the role of property manager.
“Diridon West’s strategic location, trophy profile, and proximity to premier Silicon Valley employers and live-work-play amenities make it an attractive investment,” said Alfonso Munk, Hines’ CIO of the Americas and president of HGIT. “While development costs remain elevated in the Bay Area resulting in a slowdown of new multifamily product, fundamentals continue to improve, therefore ideally positioning this asset to capitalize on the strength of the market.”
Located at 715 W Julian Street, Hanover Diridon, which will be rebranded as Diridon West, is a 7-story, 249-unit Class A multifamily development completed in 2021 and is currently 95% leased. The property includes studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units with luxury finishes and resort-style amenities including a pool with cabanas, rooftop sky deck with cityscape views, a club-quality fitness center, a dog spa, indoor/outdoor clubhouse, and below-grade parking. Additionally, the asset is located in a mixed-use micro market that is within walking distance to Whole Foods, the CalTrain Diridon Transit Station, and more.
“Diridon West differentiates itself due to its transit-adjacent location, and thoughtful unit finishes and layouts,” said Shawn Hardy, Managing Director at Hines. “We have high confidence in this micro market of San Jose which offers our residents immediate access to quality retail offerings.”
Including Diridon West, HGIT has a $4.1 billion portfolio of commercial real estate investments that is more than 63% weighted toward the living and industrial sectors. HGIT is diversified by geography and real estate sectors, with a focus on stable assets with strong long-term income potential.
Diridon West marks Hines’ continued growth in the Bay Area, which totals over 9.7 million square feet that the firm owns or manages, with more than 1,000 multifamily units managed.
