A 163-unit mixed-use apartment and retail property in Monrovia has sold for $73.8 million.

The Institutional Property Advisors division of brokerage Marcus & Millichap announced the deal on Thursday.

“Paragon at Old Town is the only apartment building completed in the last 10 years in Monrovia, a submarket that continues to be one of the most supply-constrained markets in Southern California,” said Greg Harris, executive managing director at the Marcus & Millichap’s division.

Planned developments in the area near Paragon at Old Town include Station Square, an 80-acre site near the recently opened light rail station, a depot promenade, and a neighborhood park, said Joe Grabiec, senior managing director at IPA.

Greg Harris, Ron Harris, Kevin Green, a senior director, and Grabiec represented the seller, a global institutional asset management firm. The buyer was Foothill Ranch-based Sequoia Equities Inc.
