El PASO, TEXAS – Moutaindale is an attractive infill asset located within one-half mile of The University of Texas at El Paso, with an annual enrollment of over 23,000, and approximately one block from Las Palms Rehabilitation Hospital.

Strong Secondary Market Dynamics
Surrounding local economic drivers include a plethora of retailers, including Target, Office Depot, and Bassett Place Mall, which includes an IMAX Theatre. Within easy driving distance is McKelligan Canyon Park & Amphitheater, Fort Bliss Golf Course and Franklin Mountain State Park. El Paso Community College Transmountain Campus is nearby. The location of the property near high-traffic commuter highways, its proximity to the growing population of Fort Bliss, and the demographic profile of the area, all provide strong market fundamentals and the potential for long-term value appreciation of the asset.
Excellent Employment Drivers
Mountaindale is near Fort Bliss Army Base, home to the 1st Armored Division and the Army’s second largest installation. Fort Bliss provides a constant impact on El Paso’s demand for high quality rental housing. Approximately 60% of Fort Bliss soldiers currently reside off base, and Mountaindale is conveniently located to the base. Additionally, the city of El Paso serves as the economic center of West Texas and is ranked in the top five largest manufacturing cities in the nation. Two of El Paso’s largest employers, high tech giants Hewlett-Packard and Automatic Data Processing, increased their workforces last year, and plan to hire more this year. Overall job growth is expected to continue to increase over the near future. The asset benefits from numerous nearby employment centers and continued expected job growth, both promising continued demand for housing units, and strong future occupancy rates.
Strong Multifamily Submarket
Mountaindale is situated in a highly sought after area of El Paso, which has boasted significant growth and strengthening demographics. Properties similar to the subject have experienced an average occupancy rate of 95 percent, while rents are currently $0.94 per square foot. With strong employment and the influx of new soldiers to Fort Bliss driving demand for multifamily housing, Sundial’s location will continue to be one the most prized rental areas in El Paso, providing the investor long-term stability, strong future rent growth potential and excellent value appreciation.
The asset is being offered on an all cash basis allowing for unrestricted financing options.
