JV Buying California Apartments
BEVERLY HILLS, CA - International real estate investment and services company Kennedy Wilson (NYSE: KW) today announced that the firm has entered into an equity joint venture with PCCP to complete its acquisition of a large apartment community in Northern California.

"We found this opportunity compelling because it allowed us to invest new equity into an over-leveraged capitalization with accretive assumable debt," stated Rob Cohen, senior vice president of PCCP. "We invested the new capital at an attractive going-in yield and cost basis for an in-fill apartment community that offered an affordable alternative to residents compared to surrounding for-sale housing."

Robert Hart, president and CEO of Kennedy Wilson Multifamily, commented, "We are excited to join forces with PCCP on this significant deal, which leverages our services platform and increases our Northern California portfolio to over 2,500 units."

The venture, which is the third between the two firms, purchased a 100% equity interest in the property and restructured a three-year bridge loan with Bank of America to capitalize the deal.

"Our client team has worked with Kennedy Wilson for many years," said Marchell Hilliard, senior vice president of Bank America Merrill Lynch Commercial Real Estate Banking. "We are pleased to be able to provide financing that will make an impact in the City of Alameda."
