Investment Summary

We are pleased to provide the opportunity to invest in Kim King Associates LLC's acquisition of a 14,000 SF lot located in Midtown Atlanta next to Piedmont Park. The site is currently vacant and was purchased off market from a long-term holder. The sponsor had originally spoken to their traditional senior lender, but because of a tight acquisition timeline, approached us for certainty of close. This investment provides the opportunity to invest in a tight supply constrained and growing market at 72% of the purchase price (61% of total acqusition costs) with a personal guarantee from a strong sponsor. The sponsor will complete construction drawings and then seek to take Fundrise out within 12 months with a senior construction loan. The developer may also pay back principal in advance, as there is no prepayment penalty. Given Fundrise's high interest rate, it is a likely scenario that the investment could be repaid shortly after the 90 day pre-payment lockout expires.

Key Deal Points

Strong Location

The Midtown area is one of the strongest submarkets of Atlanta. There is low new condo supply and high professional job growth. 1 Block from W Hotel and proposed Whole Foods Development.

Favorable Basis

The sponsor is purchasing the land for $90/SF, and the Fundrise senior debt investment will feature a basis of $65/SF. Comparable land sales in Midtown average $96 psf; 2014 Midtown sales averaged $132 psf. 

Personal Guarantee

The loan is personally guaranteed by a high net worth individual with extensive real estate experience and sufficient liquidity.

High Current Return

14% current return with a fully pre-funded interest reserve is above market for a secured position.

Active Local Sponsors

Kim King completed the first Midtown condo project in this cycle (Ansley Green). It is a 6-unit wood-frame project 2 blocks north of the subject project. 5 of 6 units have sold and the project is three months from delivery. The sponsor has a deep understanding of the immediate market, excellent track record and local reputation. 

Clear Exit Strategy

The investment is projected to exit after construction plans are completed and a senior construction loan is secured. Fundrise was presented this deal because Kim King’s traditional bank was not able to close quickly enough. There is also a high probability that Kim King refinances the Fundrise acquisition loan with cheaper capital in 90 days after lockout.
