Investment Summary

This is an opportunity to invest in the development and construction of a 40-unit brand new residential condominium project located in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Key Deal Points

Strong Demand for Condos Due to Lack of Supply

Koreatown is Los Angeles's densest neighborhood with residential vacancy under 2%. The area is projected to have 4.5% population growth projected by 2019, which is anticipated to result in continued significant residential demand for new homes and condos and increased sales prices.

Project is Fully Approved and Under Construction

The sponsors purchased the land fully entitled and have already begun initial construction having closed on their primary loan with the bank.

Interest Reserve to Pay Current Return

The sponsor funded a two year interest reserve at closing which will be used to pay the current preferred return during the construction prior to the proceeds from the sale of the units.

Attractive Basis on Investment

In a conservative scenario where the sales prices for units ended up 5-10% below the projections, only 28 of the 40 units would need to sell for the entire Fundrise Investment to be paid back.

Market Summary

The Koreatown submarket is an up and coming area just west of the downtown of Los Angeles that has a large amount of restaurants and retail. Koreatown is one of the most popular and hip neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Following the 1992 riots, the neighborhood was burned out and suffered significantly as a result. The neighborhood did not start to turn around until the late 90s when Korean investors started buying property as a way to protect cash investments during the Asian Financial Crisis. Since then, the neighborhood continued to grow.
