Windward Forest II was an off-market transaction that "found" SDM. The seller had some unfortunate events in a short time that caused the property to be 65% vacant. The situation was reminiscent of 2010-2012. A repositioning and lease-up started right after closing.

Windward Forest II went under a complete repositioning with a new 20-year roof, all new HVAC equipment, new bathrooms and common area, and extensive new landscaping. The property, as of February, 2017, was on the verge of being 100% leased at rental rate well above underwriting.
