Company Release – 02/20/2014
MIAMI, FL – Eagle Property Capital, LLC announced this week the acquisition of Cross Creek, a stabilized 292 unit multifamily community in Jacksonville, Florida for $8,710,000. The property was acquired by Nova Eagle Multifamily Property Fund II, LLC (“Fund II”), a private investment vehicle raised and managed by Eagle Property Capital. Cross Creek represents the third acquisition of Fund II.
Cross Creek is located within the northwest quadrant (Westside) of Jacksonville in the Lakeshore submarket, less than a mile from I-10 and I-295. The property is centrally located to thousands of jobs offered within Downtown Jacksonville, NAS Jacksonville, I-10 Corridor, and Cecil Commerce Center. Cross Creek is located close to service retail along Normandy Boulevard (e.g. Walmart, Publix, Kmart and Winn Dixie, etc.) and within miles of two other Eagle Property Capital communities which will complement the local portfolio by providing diversification by both location and price point.
Eagle Property Capital will execute its proprietary professional management standards and plans to make additional capital investments to exteriors, complete interior upgrades to the remaining unrenovated apartments, and improve recreational areas.
The acquisition was partially financed under a ten-year, 4.87% fixed rate loan.
Fund II acquires and operates class B and C multifamily apartment communities in top growth metropolitan areas of the Southern United States. Its objective is to create value through reposition, redevelopment and proprietary management. Fund II has equity commitments totaling approximately $25 million and can use leverage up to 60% of the value of its assets, allowing for an investment capacity of approximately $62.5 million. As of January 31, 2014, Fund II owned three multifamily communities containing over 850 apartment homes in Jacksonville, FL and Dallas, TX representing a total acquisition cost of over $26 million.
