TruAmerica Multifamily, a value-add investment firm, has acquired a 264-unit apartment in Huntington Beach for $90.5 million, adding to the company’s growing Los Angeles portfolio.

The seller was an affiliate of UDR, which paid $33.8 million for the property in 2003, records show.

West Los Angeles-based TruAmerica plans to renovate the Pacific Shores, a Class B property. That will include a complete overhaul of 74 aging units. The company will also make improvements to the outdoor pool and spa, landscaping, barbecue areas and fitness center, it said in a release announcing the sale.
