Fairway America, LLC (“Fairway”) and Pepper Pike Acquisition Associates, LLC (“Pepper Pike”) (collectively, the “Co-Managers”) intend to acquire Meridian Court South Apartments (the “Property” or “Meridian”), a 289-unit Class B multifamily project located in Indianapolis, IN. The Property will be Fairway’s 18th acquisition with Pepper Pike. The Co-Managers already own three other assets together in the Indianapolis market.

Investment Summary

  • Mark-to-Market / Renovation Premium: The Co-Managers believe there is an immediate opportunity to mark expiring leases on unrenovated units to market rent, yielding an average +9.4% premium over in-place rents. Additionally, the Co-Sponsor intends to implement a $6.3M renovation program which is projected to generate $339 more in monthly rent compared to in-place, representing an expected 18.5% return on capital investment.
  • Competitive Rental Pricing: : After completing the $6.3M renovation, leasing efforts are expected to garner increased demand, with rental rates that compare favorably in the Indianapolis market. The average blended rent for competitor properties is $1,310 per month, while the Property’s post-conversion market rents are forecast to be $1,160.
  • Deep Market Knowledge: Pepper Pike currently manages 3,227 units in the Indianapolis market, including projects such as: Riverbend (996 units), Crooked Creek (216 units), Lake Castleton (1,261 units), 9 on Canal (304 units), A/62 Apartments (209 units), and Fountain Parc (241 units). Additionally, Pepper Pike has another 1,190 units that are under contract, including this Property.
  • Strong Demand in Great Location:  Well-known investor Peter Linneman ranked Indianapolis a “red hot” market, second only to Salt Lake City.2The market has rebounded from COVID and is experiencing strong employment growth and only 2.0% unemployment.3 Healthcare and related employers in Indianapolis are expected to continue to grow. The local economy has supported +12.1% year-over-year market rent growth for Class B properties in the submarket.4 Meanwhile, no units have been delivered over the past 12 months and new construction remains muted, reinforcing a tight submarket vacancy rate of 3.9%.4
