It is adjacent to the NW 21st & 23 Ave shopping and dining districts. The building, built in 1926, is on the national historic register with vintage charm and a unit mix of studios and 1 bedrooms. The Shannon is the seventh apartment complex acquired by Cumberland and its investors and under its management.

The property was acquired with 1031 exchange proceeds and a mortgage from Sterling Bank. Cumberland’s General Counsel, Scott Haynes, facilitated the legal structuring to comply with IRS regulations regarding 1031 tax deferred exchanges.

The property was acquired from a distressed partnership that had undercapitalized and undermanaged the asset. Cumberland will commence exterior and unit renovations immediately. Riverstone Residential will serve as manager.
