The 192-unit Solterra at Civic Center in Norwalk has sold for $81 million.

A private company acquired the multifamily property from San Diego-based RedHill Realty Investors, Century City-based Shelter Asset Management and Tokyo-based Tokyu Land Corp.


Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.’s Sean Deasy, Peter Yorck, Nick Lavin and Chelsea Jarvis represented the sellers in the transaction.


Solterra at Civic Center is located at 12700 Bloomfield Ave. It has one- and two-bedroom units. Of the 192 units, 49 had previously been renovated. 
The 8-acre property’s amenities include a tennis court, two pools, a fitness center and playground.

“Solterra at Civic Center is a unique, suburban, low-density, value-add opportunity in the heart of the mid-cities,” Yorck said in a statement. “We have seen unrivaled demand from investors for this type of product as renter demand has increased due to changing renter demand related to the Covid pandemic. We look forward to the buyer realizing their business plan at the property.”
