Alterra & Pravada
at Grossmont Trolley

Investment Highlights

The acquisition of Alterra & Pravada at Grossmont Trolley brings TruAmerica Multifamily’s San Diego portfolio total to more than 1,600 units with assets in Oceanside, Vista, Escondido and El Cajon. The property represents TruAmerica’s fourth investment in the San Diego MSA and seventh investment in 2018. Alterra & Pravada was purchased from the original developer who has done an excellent job caring for the property.

TruAmerica will undertake a capital improvement program that will consist of a modest refresh of the nearly 10-year-old interiors as units turn, and will upgrade the common area amenities that include Alterra & Pravada’s two clubhouses, two pools and pool decks.  The exterior renovation program also will include new landscaping and paint to improve the overall curb appeal of the community. As a result of the planned apartment and common area upgrades, the property will be able to leverage its superior location and outperform other comparable communities.
