Gig Harbor, Washington , Sept. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Harbor Custom Development, Inc. (“Harbor” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: HCDI), an innovative and market leading real estate company involved in all aspects of the land development cycle, today announced that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement for the acquisition of 9.6 acres of land in Port Orchard, Washington for a price of $1.44M. The purchase is expected to close on or before June 1, 2021, contingent upon permit approval.
The property, approximately a twenty-minute drive to Tacoma, and ten minutes to the fast ferry terminal to Seattle’s Central Business District, is earmarked by Harbor as a joint venture for the development of a 144-unit multi-family garden style apartment complex featuring studio, one – and two-bedroom units with diversified floor plans. It will be Harbor’s initial entry into the Port Orchard rental market. Port Orchard, which is located in Kitsap’s County, has seen a 60% increase in its population from 2009 to 2018 and, as a result, demand for apartment rentals has increased substantially during the period.
Sterling Griffin, President and CEO of Harbor, stated, “Port Orchard represents an ideal location for Harbor to increase our footprint in Kitsap County and address the growing need for multi-family rental product. Very little rental inventory has been created over the last nine years in Port Orchard resulting in a severely underserved market. We believe these units will become a partial solution to the current market imbalance. Driving recurring revenue to our bottom line through the development and construction of 100+ unit multi-family assets is a core fundamental in our business plan and clearly differentiates us from other publicly traded single family home builders.”
