BV Capital and Archway Properties have launched the BV Archway Real Estate Income Fund, jump-starting a $50 million equity play with the off-market acquisition of a triple net-leased asset in a 111-acre business park in the Houston market.
The fund is planning to acquire 10 to 12 single-tenant NNN-leased properties in Texas, leveraging its equity to build an institutional-quality portfolio of commercial assets. BV Capital projects it will be fully invested in one to two years.
The fund has seeded the portfolio with its first holding – a 79,684-sf Floor & Décor showroom and warehouse in Park Air 59, a mixed-use development located at the eastern entrance of Bush Intercontinental Airport. The Archway-developed project, which delivered in late 2019, is secured by a NNN lease with a publicly traded company that’s ranked as one of Fortune 100’s fastest growing companies.
“Floor & Décor is pandemic-resistant, as evidenced by its stellar growth in the past year. It’s a strong start for the BV Capital Archway Fund portfolio,” says Rob Anderson, president of Dallas-based BV Capital, a member of the Bridgeview family of companies. “Archway Properties truly is a great partner for sourcing and acquiring properties.”
The fund’s strategy calls for an anticipated five-year hold. The team is focused on sourcing build-to-suit developments and one-off acquisitions of newer buildings, which are NNN-leased for the long term to creditworthy tenants in historically strong markets like Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston.
“The fund has four more properties under contract,” Anderson says. “Our acquisition sweet spot is $5 million to $15 million.”
BV Capital is projecting a 7% annual preferred return for the new investment vehicle, which is coming to market as a real estate alternative for accredited income investors. The fund is designed to produce a stable monthly income for investors throughout the hold, with an opportunity for upside on the exit.
“The beauty is we’ve created a fund that produces cash flow for accredited investors with tax benefits minus the turbulence of today’s markets,” Anderson says.
