Fairstead Acquires 105-Unit Historic Aurora Apartments in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO — Fairstead, an investment firm with three offices along the East Coast, has acquired Aurora Apartments, a 105-unit historic multifamily complex in San Antonio’s Tobin Hill neighborhood. The 11-story, 92-year-old building currently provides housing for low-income senior citizens. Fairstead plans to invest $15 million to rehabilitate Aurora Apartments and preserve the property’s affordability status. Renovations will include upgrades of pieces of building infrastructure such as the emergency generator, electrical panels and main switchgear, as well as the installation of a new sprinkler system, elevators and roofing. The units’ kitchens, bathrooms, HVAC units and appliances will also be upgraded. Construction is expected to begin this summer.
