INDI Tucson, an 88-unit complex with 232 beds, at 1920 N. First Ave., was built in 1972 and recently renovated.

California investors have bought a student-housing complex north of the University of Arizona.

INDI Tucson, an 88-unit complex with 232 beds for rent at 1920 N. First Ave., sold for $8 million. Built in 1972, it was renovated last year.

“INDI Tucson represented a truly unique market opportunity,” said Rue Bax, multifamily senior managing partner with ABI Multifamily. “Its orientation as student-focused housing and proximity to the University of Arizona main campus made it an inherently appealing property.”

Bax, along with Desiree Palmer, John Kobierowski, Alon Shnitzer, Eddie Chang and Doug Lazovick, of ABI Multifamily, represented the seller, an Arizona-based private equity real estate investor.
