Civitas Capital is active as a lender, investor, and developer. We invest for our own account and through co-GP structures with partners.
We seek to preserve and enhance attainable housing stock through acquisition and development.
Through our EB-5 platform, we provide senior and subordinated construction debt for multifamily and single-family build-to-rent projects nationwide.
Investment Portfolio Highlight
Mezzo is a 378-unit luxury multifamily property situated in the Dallas suburb of Aubrey, Texas. The property is just minutes away from prominent establishments such as the PGA headquarters and Toyota Motor’s North American headquarters. Additionally, it enjoys close proximity to major employment hubs like the Platinum Corridor.
Civitas made a mezzanine loan to an affiliate of Argyle Residential to partially finance the development of Civic Lofts, a 176-unit, Class A multifamily community located in the heart of Denver, Colorado. The project will primarily offer micro-units, which are especially attractive to Millennial renters seeking a lower rent expense.
Territory at Greenhouse
Civitas acquired Territory at Greenhouse, a 288-unit, 13-building, garden-style luxury apartment complex in West Houston. Located between West Houston’s Energy Corridor and Katy, the property, developed in 2020, is within a 20-minute drive from either downtown Houston or Sugar Land, one of America’s best suburbs.
Center Place Apartments
Civitas acquired Center Place Apartments, a 194-unit multifamily property in Arlington, a suburb that is a crucial growth-driver within the Dallas-Fort Worth MSA. The property, just north of Interstate 20, allows residents excellent access throughout North Texas. Center Place was built in two phases, 1984 and 2013.
Market Opportunity, Strategy, & Execution
Civitas Capital deliberately does not have a traditional comingled fund focused on asset classes, because the multifamily sector is changing rapidly. Therefore it is important to maintain flexibility and invest in core-plus, value-add, and ground-up development. Through our DOMOS fund, as well as the firm’s internal capital, Civitas has the capacity to close transactions quickly while maintaining this flexibility.
