DALLAS, TX - Southern Properties Capital, a subsidiary of Dallas-based real estate investment company Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc, is announced a joint venture agreement with a wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie Group Limited.
The joint venture, Victory Abode Apartments d/b/a Abode Properties Services, currently holds 10,133 units across 11 states with 3 assets currently under construction, formed with TCI and Southern Properties Capital contributing the portfolio of more than 50 multifamily assets together with a substantial equity investment by Macquarie.
The joint venture’s primary focus is to create a business platform that will allow dramatic expansion in the multi-family arena. The intent is to increase the overall size of the portfolio over the next several years, through strategic buildout of its robust development pipeline alongside opportunistic acquisitions. The company remains highly focused in its core Southeast and Southwest US geographic areas.
Victory Abode Apartments (VAA) is one of the largest multi-family operating companies in the country. VAA is immediately poised to address existing and future demand for quality multifamily residential housing through acquisition and development of sustainable Class A multifamily housing in focused secondary and tertiary markets. VAA’s strong equity position is balanced through the use of fixed-rate, long-term HUD mortgage debt, commercial mortgages, and the use of various conventional construction lenders. The company will be principally operated by a dedicated and highly professional management team with decades of industry experience, with strategic support from the venture partner.
“This transaction falls right in line with our strategic vision,” stated Daniel Moos, CEO and President of Transcontinental Realty Investors/Southern Properties Capital, and CEO of Victory Abode Apartments. “This new collaboration with Macquarie, in addition to our Series A and B Bond Raisings on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, creates additional financial strength to an already thriving organization.”
“We are excited to partner with TCI / Southern Properties on the acquisition of this portfolio of predominantly workforce housing, with opportunities for expansion in attractive, pro-business markets,” said Jackie Hamilton, Senior Managing Director at Macquarie Principal Finance.
