Investment Summary

This is an opportunity to invest in the development of a brand new Class-A 158-unit luxury apartment building, the Bonneville, located in the Central City neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. The sponsor, JF Capital, recently delivered two similar multifamily properties, the 122-unit CityScape and the 61-unit Newhouse, in the same neighborhood and successfully exited both through a sale of each property upon stabilization.

Key Deal Points

Strong Underlying Market Fundementals

The greater Salt Lake City metro area is currently one of the strongest performing cities in the country; the US Chamber of Commerce rated Utah as the #3 State in overall economic performance at the end of 2014 and Forbes listed it as the #1 place for business. This growth has largely been driven by companies like Adobe, Twitter, Electronic Arts and Goldman Sachs creating a growing demand for a highly-skilled and technical work-force, which in turn has resulted in steady demand for new housing.

Active Local Sponsor

The Principals of JF Capital have collectively developed, constructed and acquired over $700 million of real estate assets since 2007, including residential, multi- family and seniors housing. JF Capital’s multi-family division has most recently developed three luxury apartment projects in the greater Salt Lake City metro area, representing nearly 600 units, and also has seven active apartment projects, representing nearly 900 units, in its current development pipeline.

Attractive Investment Basis

The sponsor forecasts as-stabilized NOI in excess of $2M. Assuming a 6.0% exit cap rate and 80% LTV permanent loan, refinance proceeds yield a 1.30x takeout cover for the senior debt and Fundrise investment. In a downside scenario, sale proceeds yield a 1.62x takeout cover under sponsor projections. In other words, based on conservative assumptions the property would have to perform more than 20% below projections before the Fundrise investment was negatively impacted.
