Fairway America, LLC (“Fairway”) and Pepper Pike Acquisition Associates, LLC (“Pepper Pike”) (collectively the “Co-Managers”) intend to acquire Spanish Cove Townhomes and Hathaway Village Apartments (each a “Property” and collectively the “Properties”), two multifamily properties comprising 912 total units in the St. Louis metro area. The Properties will be Fairway’s 15th and 16th acquisitions with Pepper Pike.

The Co-Managers plan to purchase the Properties at a basis below replacement value. The Co-Managers believe the Properties are well-located in a desirable submarket with little new supply, and the Co-Managers plan to implement a significant value-add plan designed to modernize the Properties and pursue higher rents.

The Co-Managers intend to co-manage and co-execute the business strategy for acquiring, renovating, operating, and selling the Properties (the “Project”).

Business Strategy 2

The Co-Managers plan to execute a $18.4 million (approximately $20,200 per unit) capital improvement plan, which will focus on updating the 1971-vintage Properties with modern interior finishes and clubhouse and pool area upgrades. The Co-Managers are targeting a resulting average $208 rent increase immediately post-renovation.

Opportunity Highlights 2

  • Acquiring at Basis the Co-Managers Believe is Below Replacement Value: The Co-Managers will acquire the property for $47.6 million, 28% below what the Co-Managers believe is the replacement value of the Properties, based on recent sale prices of comparable properties built between 1971 and 1988 (as reported by CoStar Analytics).
  • Limited New Supply & Pending Demand: Investment activity in the St. Louis metro continues,4 driven by out-of-state investors seeking opportunities in the metro for its stability relative to coastal markets.5 Market research indicates recent employment growth in the metro has been driven by the trade, transportation and utilities sector, as e-commerce is driving a warehouse boom and tenants like Grey Eagle Distributors and Amazon have moved to the area.6
  • Well-Located for Operational Efficiency & Renter Demand: The Properties are separate assets but are located less than four miles apart, allowing the Co-Managers to share onsite property management resources in an effort to maximize operation efficiency. Each Property is also located less than 14 miles (an approximately 25-minute drive) from downtown St. Louis and major employers like Anheuser-Busch.
