Blue Vista Capital Management has acquired land for two build-to-rent (BTR) development projects outside Phoenix, Arixona.

These projects will be built at Litchfield Park and Goodyear.

The deal represents around $102m in total capitalised value.

According to Blue Vista, the projects will be built to provide residents with ‘an exceptional quality rental experience with an inclusive neighbourhood community feel’.

Following completion, the projects will feature more than 300 homes totaling 265,028ft2, and provide private gated entrances and amenities, including private outdoor space, resort-style pools, clubhouses, and outdoor lounge areas with grills.

“We are pleased to deliver modern B2R options at market-rates to residents seeking flexible and modern accommodations in the area.”

Blue Vista managing principal and co-head of real estate equity David Katz said. “As part of our overall residential investment strategy, we’ve developed a particular focus on partnering with best-in-class operators to develop modern B2R communities within our value-add and core plus strategies.
