The Clear Creek Apartments are located in the Overland submarket in Johnson County. Johnson County is one of the most desirable places to live in Kansas City with plenty of high-paying jobs and abundant retail and entertainment options. The submarket has been the primary beneficiary of job movement from Missouri to Kansas in recent years and has the highest concentration of office space in the metro. The Property is surrounded by lush, green areas and mostly single-family homes. The Apartments are walking distance to the Lady Overland Golf Course and is close to major thoroughfares- I-35 and Hwy 69.

This represented another strong value-add opportunity for revenue growth and capital appreciation through execution of interior and exterior renovations in order to capture the full potential of the property through the Sponsor’s in-house management team.

Property Category: Value Add

The Lure Apartments are located in one of the most sought-after locations by millennials in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area. The property is close to major thoroughfares I-35E and Dallas North Tollway and is within 3 miles from Highland Park, the most affluent market in Dallas. The area south of Mockingbird Lane benefits from being close to the Medical District as well as the vibrant neighborhoods in the Uptown/Park Cities Submarket. Class A properties in this submarket command some of the highest rents in the metro at nearly $1,400/month. Northwest Dallas is becoming increasingly attractive to those priced out of the Uptown/Park Cities area.

This investment presents another strong value-add opportunity for revenue growth and capital appreciation through execution of interior and exterior renovations in order to capture the full potential of the property through improved on-site management with the Sponsor’s in-house management team.

Plata 47 Apartments
With a prime location right off the strip in Las Vegas and one of the top tier assets in the market, Plata 47 presented a strong value add opportunity. MarketSpace Capital acquired Plata 47 with a $77,800 investment all of which was equity as part of a co investment with Nitya Capital.

Despite the downturn of the hospitality industry in Las Vegas due to Covid in 2020, the property was able to maintain high occupancy, collections and realize significant rent increases on renovated units. The property was ultimately positioned as the nicest place to live in the market for the best price. The property was bought at a very strong discount and with demand for assets very high in the region, cap rates continued to compress creating an opportune time to capitalize on a disposition.

In April of 2021 the property was sold, and MarketSpace Capital saw a return in equity of $134,722 resulting in an IRR of 29%.

Former Family Dollar

Furthermore, the abandoned road adjacent to the shopping center which was previously used as a community dump, was cleared and leveled creating additional parking to improving the property as well as the community.
