'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A New Jersey firm has purchased the Sandalwood Apartments in Allegheny Township.

Tryko Partners is a private equity real estate group that specializes in purchasing multi-family units and Section 8 housing complexes such as Sandalwood.

The 10-acre property off Route 66 consists of 16 buildings with 86 units, mainly two- and three-bedroom apartments.

It was formerly owned by American Housing Partners.

Allegheny Township Manager Gregory Primm said the township hasn't had problems at the complex.

“It's always operated normally,” he said. “It's dated, but the old owners kept up on it pretty good. We never had any complaints or code violations.”

Primm said Tryko hasn't contacted the township regarding its plans for Sandalwood.

“They really haven't talked to us yet about it,” Primm said. “We knew it was happening from the deed transfer.”

In a news release announcing the acquisition, Tryko said the Sandalwood purchase is part of an effort to expand the company's presence in the Pittsburgh region.

“It also fits well in terms of product type as we continue to strategically expand our affordable housing portfolio,” said Uri Kahanow, Tryko director of acquisitions, in a news release.

Tryko says it owns and manages about 1,500 apartments in the Pittsburgh market.
