The Growth Investment Group is proud to offer Los Robles Apartments – 262 N Los Robles Ave, a 93-unit value-add non-rent controlled apartment investment opportunity located in the highly desirable City of Pasadena, CA. The property is located within the Pasadena Playhouse District, an eclectic cosmopolitan community rich in history and architecture. Because of this superb location, it has a Walk Score 89 out of 100, demonstrating high “walkability” to a variety of nearby amenities such as restaurants, shops, health clubs and entertainment venues.

The property is a three-story garden style apartment community with a center courtyard and two levels of subterranean parking (the buildings were completed separately in 1949 and relocated to the current location on top of the then newly-built parking structure in 1984). Amenities of this property include an elevator, security cameras in the common area, bike racks, and a playground area that could be converted into a barbecue area and etc.  The property is separately metered for electricity and gas. Domestic hot water is produced by gas-fired boilers. Heating is provided by wall mounted gas heaters. Cooling is provided by window or wall mounted systems.

The property offers an appealing unit mix with seven (7) 3 bedroom+1 bathroom, nineteen (19) 2 bedroom+1 bathroom, nineteen (19) 1 bedroom+1 bathroom, twenty (20) large studio, twenty (20) studio, and eight (8) single/bachelor units.

Most units have an excellent layout with large windows and smooth plaster ceilings. Almost all units on the 2nd and 3rd floors have access to private/shared balcony with views of San Gabriel Mountains or the historic Old Pasadena. Each unit has carpet flooring, plenty of storage cabinets, non-upgraded kitchen, and a bathroom.

Two units (unit 127 & unit 129) were combined into a management office, and one unit (unit 130) is currently being used as a storage space. This “storage” unit could be easily utilized as a leasing office or a gym, giving investors the potential to put units back into service.

The property has a two-level subterranean parking lot with a total of 173 parking spaces.  Based on the unit mix, only 119 parking spaces are needed for the residents. The advantage of over park provides a great opportunity for the investor to capitalize on the additional 54 parking spaces by charging additional rent.

The property is being sold completely vacant in an as-is condition. This presents a clean slate opportunity for value-add investors to acquire a TRUE value-add apartment deal in a Class A location in San Gabriel Valley submarket. 


The property is located in the highly desirable downtown area of Pasadena – more specifically, in the renowned Pasadena Playhouse district situated south of the 210 Freeway.

The Pasadena Convention Center and Pacific Asia Museum are within walking distance.
