ORANGE COUNTY, CA-Equity Residential Properties has completed its record-breaking $90-million purchase of Prudential Realty Group’s Toscana Apartments complex in Irvine. first reported in August that Prudential had found a buyer for the upscale development who had agreed to pay about $90 million. The $160,000-per-unit price easily surpasses the county’s previous record of about $145,000 per unit.

“This is one of the only multifamily rental complexes in Orange County within walking distance of a central business district,” says Alan George, EVP of acquisitions at Equity Residential. “We think this is going to be a tremendous long-term asset.”

Raymond Eldridge and Joseph Leon of CB Richard Ellis’ Newport Beach office represented Prudential Realty Group in the transaction. Equity Residential owns 1,000 apartment complexes in 35 states.
