How private real estate is connecting with a 5G future
The rollout of 5G mobile telecommunications networks around the world is more than just another opportunity for telephone companies to sell new contracts and new handsets to consumers. The low-tech world of brick and mortar is set to be transformed by the new technology. The fifth generation of wireless technology, 5G is a standard designed to deliver data speeds greater than one gigabit per second and latency (how long it takes a device to respond to other devices over a network) of less than one millisecond. What this means in practice is that 5G is faster – up to 100 times faster than existing 4G networks – enabling the transfer of more information, such as high-definition video. In addition, 5G-enabled devices will have the ability to connect to 100 times more devices at any time.

Los Angeles-based Orion Real Estate Partners ("Orion") announced today that it has acquired The Timbers, a garden-style apartment community in San Marcos, Texas. Orion purchased the 155-unit apartment community from The Jacobson Company who owned it since 2016 and plans to invest approximately $1.7mm in interior and exterior improvements. The Property sits on a nine-acre, irreplaceable hilltop site overlooking downtown San Marcos and Texas State University (TXST), home to 38,000 students.

The Timbers is located just 30 minutes away from downtown Austin. This is Orion's sixth acquisition in the central Texas corridor, spanning from Austin to San Antonio, and the firm is focused on expanding its portfolio in the area. Orion has a favorable long-term outlook on central Texas and expects that the corridor will continue to outperform the nation in both job and population growth. CBRE Multifamily Capital provided an acquisition loan through East West Bank, and Orion engaged Peak Campus, a national leader in student-housing, to provide property management services.
