TACOMA, Wash, May 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCDI, HCDIP, HCDIW, HCDIZ) (“Harbor,” “Harbor Custom Homes®,” or the “Company”), a real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced an update on the Company’s six multi-family projects.
Harbor made a strategic pivot in the Company’s Western Washington portfolio last year, from single-family homes to focus on the development and construction of multi-family communities. The Company listed six multi-family projects with Kidder Matthews in April 2022. The first two projects are anticipated to close in June 2023 – Mills Crossing townhomes, a completed 36-unit townhome project in Bremerton, Washington, and Bridge View Trail apartments, a fully entitled and developed 138-unit apartment site in Port Orchard, Washington.
In addition to Mills Crossing, Harbor has completed vertical construction on Pacific Ridge, an 80-unit project in Tacoma, Washington, and Wyndstone, a 76-unit apartment complex in Yelm, Washington. The Company’s largest project Belfair View is a 228-unit garden-style apartment complex under construction in Belfair, Washington, currently in lease-up on the project’s first phase. Harbor’s second largest project Meadowscape, is a 177-unit apartment complex located in Olympia, Washington, that will commence leasing in June.
“I am proud of the work of our dedicated staff as we continue to refine our multi-family operations. We are seeing good velocity on the rent-up of our apartment projects as we continue to execute on our stated business plan. We look forward to monetizing the balance of our apartment portfolio as each project approaches rental stabilization. While we are progressing nicely on our current projects, the Company is equally focused on replenishing our pipeline for future multi-family projects,” stated Jeff Habersetzer, Chief Operating Officer of Harbor Custom Development, Inc.
Harbor released an updated short video on the construction progress of the six multi-family projects in Western Washington, including the following:
- Mills Crossing, Bremerton (36 units) – 61% leased and project under contract.
- Pacific Ridge, Tacoma (80 units) – 74% leased.
- Wyndstone, Yelm (76 units) – 67% leased.
- Belfair View, Belfair (228 units) 37% leased in phase one.
