Capital Square Launches Private Equity Group to Focus on Build-for-Rent and Other Non-Traditional Real Estate Investments

Capital Square | September 20, 2022

Capital Square, one of the nation's leading sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investments and an active developer of multifamily communities, announced today the launch of its Private Equity Group, a new corporate division that will focus on single-family build-for-rent homes and other non-traditional real estate investment opportunities. Industry veterans, Jon Trott and Dave Platter, have joined Capital Square as managing directors to lead the new division. "Build-for-rent homes are an increasingly popular choice among renters in the Southeast through Texas, where Capital Square actively invests in multifamily housing, Exceptionally strong demand has made build-for-rent a compelling investment strategy in response to a shortage of quality housing. With in-house development, capital markets, asset management and acquisitions, the build-for-rent space is a natural evolution for Capital Square and is another way to provide innovative and compelling options to a growing number of investors and financial advisors nationwide." -Whitson Huffman, co-chief executive officer of Capital Square Build-for-rent homes, comprised of communities of single-family homes built for renting, have become an increasingly popular investment option among institutions and individual investors. Demand for this rental option is growing exponentially among residents who seek a single-family lifestyle, the financial and leasing flexibility of a rental with the amenities and convenience of a professionally managed property. The U.S. has chronically underbuilt housing since the Great Financial Crisis and needs an additional 4.3 million housing units by 2035 to meet the demand for rental housing, according to the National Multifamily Housing Council. Demand for build-for-rent homes continues to increase with professionally managed communities offering one of the best solutions for the shortage of quality, affordable housing. Institutional ownership and build-for-rent's share of overall U.S. housing stock remains less than 5%, paving the way for long-term, sustained growth for the asset class. We are thrilled to have Jon Trott and Dave Platter launch the Private Equity Group at Capital Square and focus on build-for-rent homes and non-traditional real estate investments, Build-for-rent is the hottest segment of multifamily investing and plays into the demographic trend where younger residents along with aging baby boomers want to live in a single-family home with the freedom and flexibility of a rental. We believe build-for-rent housing will become one of the most popular strategies in Capital Square's growing investment portfolio,said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer. Prior to joining Capital Square, Trott and Platter led the private equity team of The Amherst Group's build-for-rent division, where they were responsible for capital raising, acquisition sourcing and overall management of the division. Amherst is one of the nation's largest investors and operators of single-family rental homes, with $16 billion in assets under management in over 30 markets. Previously, Trott was an investment professional with Spear Street Capital, a San Francisco-based real estate private equity firm. He began his career with JPMorgan Chase & Co., one of the globe's leading financial services firms, where he reported to the chief executive officer of asset management and was involved in the execution of key mergers and acquisitions transactions, as well as strategic initiatives. He earned a bachelor's degree from Tufts University and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School. Prior to his tenure with The Amherst Group, Platter was the co-founder of Southern Creek Capital, a boutique investment manager in the single-family rental and multifamily spaces. He previously worked at the JBG Companies (now JBG SMITH Properties; NYSE: JBGS), where he was responsible for the development of more than $500 million of multifamily and mixed-use properties. His career began in the asset management division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Platter received a bachelor's degree from The University of Virginia and a Master of Business Administration from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. About Capital Square Capital Square is a national real estate firm specializing in tax-advantaged real estate investments, including Delaware statutory trusts for Section 1031 exchanges, qualified opportunity zone funds for tax deferral and exclusion and a real estate investment trust (REIT). In recent years the company has become an active developer of mixed-use multifamily properties in the southeastern US, with eight current projects totaling approximately 2,000 apartment units with a total development cost in excess of $600 million. Since 2012, Capital Square has completed more than $6 billion in transaction volume. Capital Square's related entities provide a range of services, including due diligence, acquisition, loan sourcing, property/asset management, and disposition, for a growing number of high-net-worth investors, private equity firms, family offices and institutional investors.

Tishman Speyer and Project Destined Launch First Global Partnership to Introduce Students from Underserved Communities to Careers in Real Estate

Tishman Speyer | November 16, 2022

Tishman Speyer today announced an agreement to serve as the first-ever Global Partner with Project Destined, a social impact platform that provides students in underserved communities with training in financial literacy, entrepreneurship and real estate. Through this innovative collaboration, Tishman Speyer will lead teams of college students in New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles and London through Project Destined's work-based learning approach. Tishman Speyer's leading executives in each market will offer local students the opportunity to explore the wide range of exciting careers available to them in the real estate industry. Just as importantly, Tishman Speyer executives will actively encourage and mentor the students as they work to develop a range of core financial, technical, presentation and leadership skills designed to aid them in launching their careers in real estate via internships, certifications and full-time employment. Students in each city will form teams and be tasked with evaluating actual commercial real estate transactions. They will then take part in a pitch competition against other teams in their local market to earn scholarships.

This inaugural "Tishman Speyer Cup" will be judged by CEO Rob Speyer and other leading executives of the firm. "The real estate industry offers a variety of fulfilling career paths, from development to finance, technology and dealmaking, Unfortunately, students in underserved communities have not historically been provided the chance to learn about the world of commercial real estate and thus don't view it as an option.
