Crow Holdings, a leading national real estate investment and development firm, announced today the closing of the third development pool of the long-term, multifamily build-to-core fund, Crow Holdings Multi-Family Build-to-Hold Fund, L.P. (the “Fund”) managed by Crow Holdings’ investment management company, Crow Holdings Capital. The multifamily build-to-hold program, which began in 2016, combines the capabilities of the firm’s investment management company and the expertise of the firm’s multifamily real estate developer, Trammell Crow Residential (“TCR”).
The recent close of $332 million in equity commitments in the latest development pool results in approximately $680 million in aggregate equity commitments to date for the Fund, which, including anticipated leverage, provides capitalization for more than $1.1 billion of apartments. The Fund is designed to build a geographically diversified portfolio of core, stabilized, Class A multifamily assets at wholesale pricing and then hold the assets for the long-term as an intended source of steady cash flow and value creation.
“We are always honored to partner with our investors across our many products and vehicles that span the spectrum of risk-adjusted returns,” said Bob McClain, CEO of Crow Holdings Capital. “This Fund is another example of executing on our strategy that focuses on secular trends of demographics and domestic migration. With hundreds of realized transactions over the past two decades, we’ve honed our ability to analyze and execute transactions that are geographically diversified in cities and regions with the most durable renter demand.”
“TCR has been developing luxury apartments for decades, and today’s market is unlike anything I’ve seen in my time in the industry,” said Ken Valach, CEO of TCR and recently appointed president of the National Multifamily Housing Council. “Supply is still well short of demand, leading to increased absorption and rent growth particularly in the markets with diversified economies and job and population growth. I’m proud of our teams’ ability to develop these high-quality communities.”
With TCR’s 16 local offices in major markets around the country and a team of more than 300 development and construction personnel, the Fund benefits from an on-the-ground presence in target markets, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Raleigh/Durham, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, South Florida, Tampa, and Washington D.C.
This is Crow Holdings’ third closing announcement of an investment vehicle in less than two months. Together with the previously announced close of Crow Holdings Industrial Properties Trust on March 14 and the close of Development Opportunities Fund on March 28, these three announced fund closings total nearly $1.7 billion in equity commitments.
