BV Corpus Christi
On behalf of Bridgeview Multifamily, BV Capital raised limited partnership equity of $6,000,000 in Fall 2022 to facilitate the acquisition of 127 acres for a mixed-use project in Corpus Christi, TX.
The property is located next to the Texas A&M Corpus Christi campus near Corpus Christi Bay. Bridgeview's goal is to develop a series of multifamily, senior living, single family, commercial (including office), retail and hospitality use projects.
127 Acre Mixed Use Development - Phase One Land Investment
The land acquisition marks the beginning of a master plan development, called Barisi Village (Barisi), that Bridgeview will partner with Blackard Companies (Blackard) to develop along one of the arteries in a key Corpus Christi submarket. Phase One is planned to include a five-story, mixed-use project containing approximately +/- 268 multifamily units, ~30,000 square feet of retail, ~2,400 square feet of executive offices, a parking garage and a village center with a bell tower and piazza. The Phase One proposed development design will be based on Blackard's proprietary village-based philosophy.
Investors will receive a preferred return of 20%, calculated on an annualized basis. The time between investment in the land acquisition and construction breaking ground on Phase One of the development is estimated to be between twelve and fifteen months. The land acquisition closed on October 27th, 2022. The construction phase is expected to be fully funded and breaking ground in Q3 or Q4 of 2023 which is when the recapitalization of the land investment will occur.
In the event that the recapitalization closes quicker, Investors will receive a minimum preferred return of 12%. If the recapitalization takes longer than approximately seven months, the accrued preferred return will exceed the minimum.
- 20% Preferred Return accruing on an annual basis
- 12%* Minimum Preferred Return if investment is closed out prior to month seven
- Investor payout occurs once the recapitalization from land phase to development phase is completed within the stated timeframe
Investors will have the option to have their investment and gain returned at recapitalization or roll all or a portion of their funds into the full construction project offering that is projected to break-ground Q3 or Q4 of 2023. Any funds rolled into the construction project would be done in a way that seeks to minimize and/or avoid tax consequences for the exchange.
*The Preferred Return is not guaranteed as it relies on the performance of the Fund and the underlying assets.
