SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) - Wood Partners, LLC announced that it has sold Mode by Alta, a 111-unit multifamily community on two acres in San Mateo, Calif., to Land & Houses USA Inc. for $73.6 million.

"Mode is an exceptional asset that presented us with another opportunity to apply our distinctive and integrated approach to development, marketing and operations," stated Brian Pianca, Wood Partners' Northern California Director. "This approach is strongly resonating with our target markets and we are excited by the opportunities that continue to present themselves as a result of this effort."

Mode by Alta, designed by Christiani Johnson Architects and built by SBI Builders, consists of two three-story buildings on top of a partially subgrade parking structure and includes a fitness room, resident lounge and club room and expansive amenity decks. One-, two- and three-bedroom units have hard-surface floors, stainless steel appliances and solid-surface countertops.

Institutional Property Advisors was the broker for the sale.
