The rental project features 36 units and is currently owned by City M Abbot LLC, a company managed by Blas Zaccaro, records show. The company spent about $3.3 million acquiring the buildings in 2010 and 2011.

Two of the multifamily buildings were built in 1940 and the other was built in 1957. The buildings are made up of 24 one-bedroom apartments and 12 studio apartments with rents ranging from $950 per month to $1,050 per month. It is 100 percent occupied.
