This week, the 543-unit Alturas Apartments – located at 1101 SW 139th Street in Burien – was sold by Fowler Property Acquisitions, and will now be managed by Forty2, LLC.
Fowler Property Acquisitions (FPA), of San Francisco, bought the then-named “Heights at Burien” for $51.5 million in 2016.
Fowler received 66 percent more than what it bought the complex for in early 2016 – around $84.5 million.
New owner Forty2 LLC is located in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
As many of our Readers will recall, this apartment complex has seen its share of shootings and crime (read our extensive previous coverage here).
