The four apartment buildings are at 301 Commons Park South, 111 Towne Street, 110 Towne Street and 120 Towne Street in Stamford. The portfolio consists of a mix of 989 studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units ranging from 544 square feet to 1,429 square feet. Each building features parking, pools, club rooms, multiple lounges and fitness centers, according to a release. 

“The Harbor Point portfolio consists of four premier Class A multifamily buildings situated in Stamford’s sought-after South End,” Alascio said in a prepared statement. “The portfolio’s best-in-class amenities coupled with its strategic location within a 10-minute walk to the Stamford Transportation Center makes it an excellent opportunity for lenders.”

Manhattan-headquartered GAIA Real Estate Holdings was founded in 2009 by Danny Fishman and Ken Woolley. Investing in both core-plus and value-add multifamily opportunities, its portfolio today comprises roughly 19,000 apartments nationwide.
