Key Benefits

This new development’s proximity to the District of Eastover is marketable to local millennials.

Less capital will be required for up-keep in this new building.

Financing has a low loan-to-value ratio.

The Sponsor has used conservative underwriting.

The Sponsor has set more in reserves than projected requirements. 

Key Risks

The rent prices are above market rents.

The projection of rent growth at 2.5% may be overly optimistic.

Rent growth will depend mainly on organic growth.

The population projection is expected to decline in the surrounding area. Many of the demand drivers are outside of the city.

A portion of the building is susceptible to encroachment disputes, which could negatively affect property operations and cash flow.

The loan has not been finalized. 

The property is yet to be acquired by the trust; this could compromise investors timing a 1031 exchange.

The Eastover Association and Condo might request that improvements are made to the property, creating unknown future expenditure that could adversely affect cash flow.

The analysis is incomplete.

The trust will only own floors three to six, which might limit the ability to make future improvements.
