CAPREIT, a fully-integrated real estate operating company responsible for the ownership and management of more than $5 billion of multifamily assets, today announced it has taken over management responsibilities of four senior-affordable apartment communities in Buffalo.
The communities – Hertel Park, Walden Park, Trinity Tower and Parkview Apartments – are located within four miles of each other and contain a combined 373 apartment homes. Residents will enjoy expedient access to Buffalo-Niagara International Airport, Walden Galleria and several additional area attractions.
“We’ve always been a proponent of quality, affordable housing and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Buffalo market,” said Leticia Palillero, acquisitions associate for CAPREIT. “Each of these four communities possesses a charm of its own, and we’re eager to implement our management strategies and help the fight for affordable housing in one of the largest cities in New York.”
The communities offer prime connectivity to attractions such as the Buffalo History Museum, Albright Knox Art Gallery and Buffalo Museum of Science. Walden Galleria, located in the nearby Cheektowaga neighborhood, provides a vast array of shopping, dining and entertainment options. The communities also are within a short drive of Interstates 90 and 190, which serve as the gateways to the metropolitan area.
Hertel Park is situated at 1625-1643 Hertel Avenue and contains 138 apartment homes. Consisting of primarily one-bedrooms and 12 two-bedroom units, the community features three laundry rooms, a community room, library and pool table.
Walden Park, located at 101 Bakos Boulevard, features a total of 126 one- and two-bedroom homes ranging in square footage from 550 to 650. Common-area amenities include a fitness center, business room, community room, lobby with fireplace and four laundry rooms.

CAPREIT, a fully integrated real estate operating company responsible for the ownership and management of more than $5 billion of multifamily assets, today announced the acquisition of Timber Ridge, an affordable apartment community in northern Virginia.
The community, which features 184 townhome-style homes, is situated just north of State Route 17 and within a short drive of Interstate 95. The latter serves as the gateway to metropolitan Washington, D.C. to the north and Richmond to the south.

Within Fredericksburg, residents will be situated nearby the Rappahannock River, the University of Mary Washington and several odes to the city’s rich Civil War History, including the four battlefields of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.
