The seller, Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Alliance Residential Company, purchased the complex, dubbed Veda, in 2016 for $81 million, per property records. 

To fund the purchase, Abacus secured a $43.4 million acquisition loan from JLL Real Estate Capital, that matures in 2029, per TRD

Neither Abacus, Alliance nor JLL immediately responded to requests for comment. 

Veda joins several other multifamily properties that Abacus owns in Southern California, according to its website, including the 412-unit Country Hills in Corona and the 138-unit Atrium at West Covina.

Alliance, for its part, is one of the largest rental residential developers in the country, building or acquiring, it says, more than 115,000 units, totalling more than $23 billion, since its founding in 2000.
