Transaction Highlights
The Sponsorship team, Moderne, has substantial experience having developed, acquired, owned, and managed more than 40,000 multifamily units across core markets including California, Texas, and especially Phoenix where they are based, and have considerable plans for continued growth. Originally, the Sponsor retained PlattPointe Capital to round out its capital stack options across its pipeline and to a conduct an extensive market study to identify prospective debt and equity partners. PlattPointe Capital identified a construction-oriented private fund that ultimately provided the most attractive terms for the project. The Sponsor structured a joint venture with a Southeast-based investment firm to complete the equity requirements.

These projects represent 358 brand new units of upscale multifamily product that are being delivered into one of the fastest growing counties in the country, Maricopa County. Arizona is expected to add nearly 550,000 jobs between 2019 and 2029 and should continue to lead the nation as a destination for employment and advanced industries like the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (TSMC AZ Corp.) that intends to build a manufacturing facility creating more than 1,600 jobs. Maricopa County boasts such employers as Arizona State University, American Express, Intel, Honeywell, Wells Fargo, Everise, Southwest Airlines, Intuit, Apple, and Roche.
