Admiral Capital Group And Mccann Realty Partners Complete Successful Sale Of Discovery At River Bend Atlanta Msa

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Date: August 9, 2018
ADMIRAL CAPITAL GROUP AND MCCANN REALTY PARTNERS COMPLETE SUCCESSFUL SALE OF DISCOVERY AT RIVER BEND ATLANTA MSA

Atlanta - Admiral Capital Group and McCann Realty Partners announced the successful sale of Discovery at River Bend, a 256-unit multifamily property located in Duluth, GA, in the Atlanta MSA.

Admiral and McCann acquired the apartment community in February 2016 through a joint venture. The investment provided an opportunity to purchase a well-located asset in the fourth largest manufacturing and distribution center market in the United States at a discount to replacement cost.

During its ownership, the joint venture repositioned the property by curing deferred maintenance, enhancing the exterior and upgrading unit interiors. Select improvements included re-siding the entire property, replacing wooden decks, updating the fitness center and installing a new playground amenity. Interior renovations included modernizing kitchen cabinets, appliances and flooring and renovating bathrooms. Overall, the upgrades repositioned the property to compete with higher quality assets with higher overall rents.

“Our strategy is to identify capital-deprived assets in markets with a supply and demand imbalance,” said Dan Bassichis, Co-Founder of Admiral Capital Group. “Discovery at River Bend was an ideal fit and provided the opportunity for our partnership to invest the necessary capital to improve the property and experience for the residents and capture a share of the growing demand and rent growth in the submarket.”

“The team from Pegasus Residential did an excellent job helping us execute our business plan. We were very happy with how the repositioning turned out,” said Thomas Upson, Principal and Managing Director at McCann.

McCann President Matthew Akin said, “We are pleased with the value created by the reposition and renovation. The investment returns exceeded expectations due in part to strong fundamentals and capital markets.”

“The investment in Discovery at River Bend was the continuation of a long-term relationship with McCann,” said Jarett Kaplus, Principal at Admiral. “We have a strong presence in Atlanta and continue to proactively seek additional value-add multifamily investments here and nationwide.”

Derrick Bloom, David Gutting and Hunter Amos, commercial real estate brokers with JLL handled the Discovery at River Bend sale.

The sale represents the first realization for Admiral in its second value-add real estate fund, Admiral Capital Real Estate Fund II, L.P. (“ACRE II”).

Admiral Capital And Mccann Realty Partners Continue Partnership With Acquisition Of Retreat At Riverside (formerly Altera Riverside) In Atlanta Msa

ATLANTA – Admiral Capital Group (“Admiral”) and McCann Realty Partners (“McCann”) today announced the acquisition of Retreat at Riverside (formerly known as Altera Riverside), a 412-home community in Lawrenceville, Georgia within the Atlanta MSA. The property will be managed by Atlanta-based Pegasus Residential.
The 1996/1999 vintage property offers three-story buildings within an attractive, low-density setting across 35 acres. Retreat at Riverside is located on Duluth Highway, with close proximity to Georgia Gwinnett College, Gwinnett Medical Center Lawrenceville, and the I-85 job corridor (19 million square feet of office and 45 million square feet of industrial space).

The joint venture will invest capital to upgrade all unrenovated units, reduce utility consumption across the property, and add new amenities, including a package system, children’s playground, and outdoor kitchens.

“Gwinnett County’s population growth has continued to impress us since our first investment in the submarket,” said Admiral’s Vice President of Acquisitions, Patrick Heffernan. “Retreat at Riverside was particularly attractive due to its microlocation, providing immediate access to the local job centers as well as the abundant retail amenities.”

“We are excited to add another Atlanta community to our portfolio and expand our successful partnership with McCann,” said Admiral Co-Founder Dan Bassichis. “We identified Atlanta and the northeast high job growth corridor as an area for investment opportunity several years ago. We have had great success acquiring value add assets and transforming them into thriving communities that meet the needs of the growing population in the area.”

“We believe Lawrenceville is a later recovery suburb of Atlanta that still has significant upside. Our team is looking forward to executing further renovations to provide the residents with an even better living experience,” said Thomas Upson, Principal and Managing Director at McCann.

McCann President Matthew Akin said, “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Admiral. The Atlanta MSA has a strong and very diversified employment base. This acquisition is consistent with our strategy to find quality assets where we can create value through upgrades to the property and benefit from an improving submarket.”

The acquisition represents Admiral’s fifth investment in Atlanta bringing its units currently under management to over 2,000 across the MSA. Admiral Co-Founder David Robinson added, “Atlanta’s impressive job growth continues to make it an attractive and core investment market for Admiral.”

John P. Mccann, Pioneer Of The Apartment Real Estate Industry, Dies At 73

John P. Mccann, pioneer of the apartment real estate industry, dies at 73

By JOHN REID BLACKWELL Richmond Times-Dispatch 14 hrs ago
When John P. Mccann joined the forerunner of United Dominion Realty Trust in 1974, he was one of two officers for the first apartment real estate investment trust in the country, a fledgling company with four properties in Virginia.

When he retired as the company's CEO in 2001, the company had grown to become a national business that owned more than $3 billion worth of apartments and had 2,500 employees. That year, the REIT was named the eighth-largest U.S. apartment owner and fifth-largest U.S. apartment manager, with about 78,000 units in 290 communities around the country.

Mr. Mccann, described by colleagues as an "innovator" and "icon" in the real estate investment trust industry, died Monday at his home in Richmond. He was 73.

"He left a great legacy in our industry," said Matthew T. Akin, who worked with Mr. Mccann at Richmond-based United Dominion Realty, which is now UDR Inc. with headquarters in Colorado. Later, Akin succeeded him as president of Henrico County-based Mccann Realty Partners in 2013.

"He was extremely intelligent, and he was very driven," Akin said. "It is tremendous what he built and how he built it from scratch."

Mr. Mccann began as managing officer of United Dominion Realty, which included such duties as accounting and investor relations. He rose within the company as it evolved and grew in the 1980s and 1990s through mergers and acquisitions and becoming publicly traded in 1985.

"I touched a lot of good people along the way," Mr. Mccann said in a 2001 interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "I paid attention to what other people were doing and said, 'Can we do that?' I'm a real believer that you can learn from others."

Mr. Mccann also was a longtime member of the board of directors of the National Multi-Housing Council, a trade association of large apartment owners, and a member of the Urban Land Institute.

He retired as chairman and CEO of United Dominion Realty in 2001 but remained on the board of directors until 2004. He then partnered with Fleet Wallace and Brand Inlow to found Mccann Realty Partners, a company that acquires, develops and manages apartment communities throughout the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Texas.

"The short answer is he was not the retiring type," Wallace said of Mr. McCann's decision to start another company. "He had a passion for the apartment business. He was very good at it. Fortunately, we were able to team up and spend 10 years working side by side.

"He had a keen business sense for the fundamentals of the apartment industry. There was a lot going on beneath the surface, but he was very even-keeled and treated everyone with respect. I think anyone would say he was the consummate gentleman."

Mr. McCann's work ethic, along with his sense of humility, may have been a product of his blue-collar upbringing in Youngstown, Ohio, and his service as a Marine Corps rifle platoon commander during the Vietnam War, his colleagues said. Mr. Mccann rarely spoke about his military service, they said.

"All he would say to us was he was fortunate to go through that and make it through OK, because a lot of other guys were not as lucky," Akin said.

He graduated from Notre Dame University in 1966 and received his MBA from New York University in 1968.

When he started with United Dominion Realty Trust in 1974, the REIT industry may have had an equity cap of around $1 billion, and today it is more like $1 trillion, said Tom Toomey, UDR's chairman and CEO.

''.lohn was one of those people who helped an industry get off the ground and helped it grow," Toomey said.

"It was not just about building a company," he said. "He built a lot of people. John was always good about identifying talent and developing talent, and that talent then went through the industry."

Mr. Mccann also was known for his civic and philanthropic work, including improving access to affordable housing. He served on the board and was past chairman of the Better Housing Coalition, a nonprofit affordable housing developer in the Richmond area.

"John contributed greatly to our RVA community at many levels and was instrumental in making BHC stronger and ready for the challenges of making positive community change," said Greta J. Harris, president and CEO of the Better Housing Coalition.

"His passion for both our corporate sustainability as well as advancing our mission was palpable," she said. "Although he loved real estate and he was a giant in that industry, his inspiration was in helping organizations like BHC to create great places to call home so that residents could thrive."

He also served for eight years on the board of the Virginia Housing Development Authority, including as chairman.

"John contributed immensely to the success of VHDA through his extensive knowledge and many years of experience in the housing industry and his deep passion for affordable housing," said VHDA Executive Director Susan Dewey. "He consistently challenged VHDA to find new ways to be innovative and efficient in the funding and administration of its programs. VHDA will greatly miss his advocacy of its mission but will most certainly continue to benefit in the future from John's strong leadership."

Survivors include his wife of 47 years, Rebecca Lee Mccann; two daughters, Stephanie Mccann Sullivan and Shannon Bess Mccann; a son, John Patrick Mccann II; a sister, Barbara Mccann Lehnerd; seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 9505 Gayton Road. Burial at Greenwood Cemetery will be private.

The joint venture plans to invest significant capital to transform the common areas and amenities, upgrade the unit interiors with modern finishes and provide a fresh appearance through an improved exterior. These updates, coupled with the convenient transportation access and abundant retail amenities, will provide an enhanced living experience for prospective residents.

“Having tracked the Triangle for a few years, Springfield Apartments represents an ideal opportunity
for Admiral’s first investment in the region,” said Admiral Co-Founder Dan Bassichis. “This acquisition
is consistent with our strategy of sourcing well-located assets with strong potential for value creation.
Additionally, we’re thrilled to continue our already successful partnership with McCann.”

“Southwest Durham continues to have strong rental growth due to job creation and relatively affordable rents,” said McCann’s Vice President of Acquisitions Thomas Upson. “Springfield will benefit from our planned capital expenditures, which will help us provide a superior experience for our residents. The property’s proximity to leading retail amenities such as Fresh Market and top employers displays the strength of the immediate area.”

McCann President Matthew Akin said, “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Admiral with another acquisition. This asset fits nicely with our strategy to find renovation opportunities where we can create value and benefit from an improving submarket with strong demographic trends.”

“Durham is an attractive market for us and consistently ranks as one of the most desirable cities in the nation,” said Admiral Co-Founder David Robinson. “This acquisition represents another opportunity to continue the Admiral mission of working with like-minded partners who desire to make a positive impact on local communities.”

“Westpoint at Scenic Vista is a well built suburban garden community in a growing submarket of Ft. Worth. We believe the large floor plans and moderate rental pricing meet the needs of this submarket very well,” said McCann’s Chief Investment Officer Brand Inlow.

“We see west Ft. Worth as a submarket that will only get better over the next five years,” said John McCann of McCann Realty Partners. “We liked the value in Westpoint at Scenic Vista, which we acquired below replacement cost with attractive Freddie Mac debt and with an expectation that we can continue to grow rents. We plan to add some amenities to the property to enhance its appeal.”

RICHMOND, VA and HOUSTON, TX – July 6, 2011 – McCann Realty Partners, LLC ("McCann") announced the acquisition of Estancia at Shadowlake in Houston, Texas. The 324-unit, garden-style community located in the Alief/Westchase submarket of metropolitan Houston was built in 2005 and will be managed by Pegasus Residential, LLC. The acquisition was funded in part by a seven-year Freddie Mac fixed rate loan with a rate of 4.42 percent originated by Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital.

RICHMOND, VA, BOCA RATON, FL and ZIONSVILLE, IN – June 20, 2011 – Silver Capital -- a division of Silver Companies -- and McCann Realty Partners announced the acquisition of Quail Run Apartments in Zionsville, Indiana. The 166-unit, garden-style community located in the affluent northeast submarket of metropolitan Indianapolis was built in 1972 and will be managed by Buckingham Management, LLC of Indianapolis. Over the next three years the property will be upgraded, including new amenities and redecorated interiors. The acquisition was funded in part by a 10-year Fannie Mae fixed rate loan with a rate of 5.29% originated by Beech Street Capital.
“We’ve had success with our other Indianapolis area apartments,” said Silver Companies CEO Larry D. Silver. “Quail Run provides us with the opportunity to upgrade and reposition a very well located, older community in one of Indianapolis’ best submarkets and to be rewarded for doing it.”

“The property has very large floor plans that are surprisingly functional, given when Quail Run was built,” said John McCann of McCann Realty Partners. “The predominant two bedroom 1,200 square foot townhouse apartment in this location makes Quail Run a unique rental community. We will redecorate the interiors, add amenities and improve the grounds over the next two plus years, as the apartments turn-over, to better position the community to compete over the long-term.”

This transaction continues the affiliation between Silver Capital, a division of the real estate development and investment firm Silver Companies, and McCann Realty Partners, an apartment and investment company. Silver and McCann first worked together in April 2005, forming Silver-McCann Apartment Group, L.P. to acquire apartment communities in the Southeast.

"We are pleased with the way that we have repositioned Northlake Village and believe that the property has continued growth potential that we can realize over the next two years."

Silver Capital -- a division of Silver Companies -- and McCann Realty Partners closed their latest apartment investment fund, Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P., after purchasing its fifth asset in July 2008.

Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P. Enters the Houston, Texas Market With the Acquisition of Villas at West Road Apartments

Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P. announced the acquisition of Villas at West Road Apartments in Houston, Texas. The 240-unit, garden-style community located in the northwest submarket of metropolitan Houston was built in 2006 and will be managed by Lincoln Property Company. The acquisition was funded in part by the assumption of an existing Freddie Mac loan with a rate of 5.82%.

With this acquisition, Silver Capital -- a division of Silver Companies -- and McCann Realty Partners ("Silver-McCann") have added the fifth and final asset to their latest apartment investment fund, Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P. Their second fund closes with total acquisitions of $154 million made over the past 18 months. Since Silver-McCann made its first acquisition in 2005, its two funds have acquired close to 3200 apartment homes.

"Villas at West Road is a well-located, high-quality community in a strong Houston submarket," said Silver Companies CEO Larry D. Silver. "It is our final acquisition in our second fund which now owns five high-quality communities in the Southeast and Southwest. We continue to favor apartments. The current climate in which there is less financing and less equity capital for acquisitions provides an opportunity for us to grow our apartment portfolio, and we plan to continue to take advantage of this climate."

"We, like Houston, and we are very bullish on the Sam Houston Tollway/West Road location of the Villas at West Road, which is walking distance from neighborhood shopping. There are also a number of things that we find appealing in the community. For Houston, it has very low density at 12 units to the acre, all of the apartment homes are two-story and have private first floor entrances and 70% of the apartments have attached garages. The community has a great feel and is a very desirable place to live," said John McCann of McCann Realty Partners. "It is a property that can maintain high occupancy, lower turnover and consistently outperform the market."

Silver-McCann Apartment Group, L.P. was organized in April 2005 by McCann Realty Partners, LLC, an apartment investment company, and Silver Capital, LLC, a division of the real estate development and investment firm Silver Companies, to acquire apartment communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.

SILVER-MCCANN ACQUIRES SHILOH VALLEY OVERLOOK APARTMENTS IN ATLANTA AS FIRST ACQUISITION IN SECOND FUND

RICHMOND, VA, BOCA RATON, FL and ATLANTA, GA – January 16, 2007 – Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P. ("Silver-McCann") announced the acquisition of Shiloh Valley Overlook Apartments in Atlanta (Kennesaw), Georgia. The 300-unit, garden-style portfolio located in the thriving Town Center submarket of metropolitan Atlanta will be managed by RAM Partners, LLC. The acquisition was funded in part by a 10-year fixed rate loan with a rate of 5.75% originated by Lehman Brothers Bank, FSB.

With this acquisition, Silver Capital -- a division of Silver Companies -- and McCann Realty Partners are launching their second apartment fund, Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P., with the expectation of acquiring $150 million worth of apartment communities in 2007.

"Shiloh Valley Overlook in Atlanta's Northern Cobb County is an ideal first acquisition for our second apartment fund. We were able to attractively leverage this class A community with a long-term fixed rate conduit loan at 5.75%," said Silver Capital CEO Larry D. Silver. "This is the fifth acquisition that Silver-McCann has made over the last seven months. While it is a very competitive market for investments, we are very encouraged by the success that we are having accessing apartment acquisitions that meet our funds’ objectives."

"We like high quality, well-located communities in strong Atlanta sub-markets. Shiloh Valley Overlook in the Town Center submarket of Cobb County meets this criteria," added John P. McCann of McCann Realty Partners. "It enjoys fairly high physical occupancy, but its economic occupancy is about 15% lower. We expect solid NOI growth at least this year and next from higher effective rents from both rent growth and lower concessions."

Silver-McCann Apartment Group, L.P. was organized in April 2005 by McCann Realty Partners, LLC, an apartment investment company, and Silver Capital, LLC, a division of the real estate development and investment firm Silver Companies, to acquire apartment communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The initial fund reached its stated objective of acquiring an apartment portfolio valued at approximately $100 million in the first 18 months of the partnership. Silver-McCann Apartment Group II, L.P. continues the partnership with the expectation of acquiring $150-$200 million worth of apartment communities over the next two years.

Silver-McCann is currently seeking apartment acquisitions in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. For more information, please contact Brand Inlow, Director of Acquisitions, at (804) 852-6657.

Since 1941, Silver Companies has built an impressive master development and real estate investment enterprise with commercial development approaching 11 million sq. ft. and residential site development totaling more than 50,000 units. In addition, the company's private equity division has provided more than $1 billion in capital to builders and developers during the last six years. Silver Companies is led by CEO Larry D.
