GLENDALE, AZ—Los Angeles-based Decron Properties has acquired Hangar at Thunderbird (Hangar), a 266-unit gated luxury multifamily community located in Glendale, AZ for $69 million. The acquisition was part of a 1031 exchange following the firm's successful disposition of two older properties in Ventura County, CA, 60 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

The 1031 Exchange is an example of Decron's ongoing strategy to geographically diversify its 10,000-unit multifamily portfolio with newer assets not restricted by city or statewide rent control, according to a prepared release.

Decron acquired Hangar for $260,000 a unit, far below the average cost of $350,000 a unit that buyers were paying at height of the market in 2021-2022 according to Decron CEO David J Nagel.
