PORTLAND, OR – March 19, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces it has advised funds managed by Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE: ARES) and Guardian Real Estate Services on the debt and equity recapitalization of Oxbow 49, a 166-unit multi-housing property in Portland, Oregon.

Oxbow 49 is located at 4949 SW Landing Drive just steps from the Willamette River in the desirable John’s Landing neighborhood of Portland, approximately 1.5 miles south of the city’s central business district.  The property’s attractive location provides residents with immediate access to major transportation routes and employment centers, including the city’s largest employer, Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU).  Completed in 2016, Oxbow 49 is LEED Silver certified and comprises studio, one- and two-bedroom units averaging 790 square feet.  Units feature modern finishes such as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and faux wood flooring as well as in-unit washers and dryers and nine-foot ceilings.  Community amenities include a third-floor terrace, rooftop lounge and generously sized private balconies offering panoramic views of the river and Portland’s West Hills.

The HFF investment advisory team advising on the recapitalization included senior managing director Ira Virden and director Carrie Kahn.
