Partnership to Capitalize U.S. Multifamily Development: Targets Denver
In an effort to help developers meet demand for more housing, Ivanhoé Cambridge and Mount Auburn Multifamily have formed a programmatic joint venture to invest in preferred equity for ground-up multifamily developments throughout the U.S., including Denver.
The partnership will further Mount Auburn’s existing investment strategy focused on millennial migration to secondary markets exhibiting low-cost, business friendly environments, high population growth, and low cost of living. The partnership’s primary target markets include Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Columbus, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, Nashville, Orlando, Phoenix, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Tampa, and Washington, D.C. suburbs.
Ivanhoé Cambridge has been particularly active in the U.S. residential market lately with more than 40,000 units in assets. It plans to continue growing its residential asset class with targeted partners in different areas, increasing the number of development projects to meet community needs and demographic changes.
Mount Auburn, with $2 billion in assets under management representing more than 10,000 units across the country, intends to utilize existing, and create new, relationships with best-in-class regional developers and owners.
“Partnering with Ivanhoé Cambridge is a transformational relationship that allows Mount Auburn to capitalize on the explosive demand growth in secondary markets that we have seen for over a decade,” says Matt Pavlovich, executive vice president for Mount Auburn. “Ivanhoé Cambridge is a sophisticated, long-term oriented partner and we look forward to assembling a distinguished portfolio together. This is only the beginning for our partnership together.”
“U.S. multifamily continues to offer compelling returns for Ivanhoé Cambridge and the partnership with Mount Auburn provides us with an opportunity to diversify our U.S. multifamily portfolio into markets that are well-positioned for durable growth,” said Charles-Antoine Lussier, Ivanhoé Cambridge senior vice president. “We are happy to partner with Mount Auburn on this joint venture. This is a first step and we look forward to expand our relationship in the future.”
