Overview


The Retreat at Salt Lake represents a strong value-add opportunities in a highly desirable submarket with high barriers to entry for new apartment developers. With no new planned supply within a five mile radius and no new apartment homes built in Farmington Hills or surrounding Class A suburbs since 2003, market fundamentals suggest pent-up demand for renovated apartment homes. Sponsor intends to implement an $9.35M ($22,052/unit) capital improvement program that includes interior upgrades to all 424 units, significant amenity updates and meaningful exterior improvements (thirty year dimensional shingle roof and HardiePlank® siding, siding, windows, parking lots, landscaping, clubhouse, etc.). The intended capital improvements are projected to drive average monthly rent growth of $244/unit, or a 25.5% increase over current market rents. 

Sponsor believes that the required investment to upgrade unit interiors will lead to immediate rent and NOI growth, as well as a significant long-term increase in residual value. Planned interior renovations include new solid wood espresso cabinets in the kitchens and bathrooms with self-close drawers and soft close doors, quartz countertops, vinyl wood plank flooring, modern backsplash, new stainless steel appliances, installation of full-size washer/dryers and all new brushed nickel fixtures throughout. Sponsor has also allocated $3.1M ($7,229/unit) of the capital improvement budget to exterior and amenity upgrades, including all new roofs, balconies/railings and windows, among other items.

Investment Summary


Sponsor believes this to be an attractive opportunity for the following reasons:

  • Purchase price is substantially below replacement cost
  • Upside creation opportunities through longer-term, more credit-worthy tenants
  • New outparcel development and sale opportunity
  • Grocery-anchored, necessity-based tenants that are in large part internet resistant
  • In-place cash flow


Though the Property only requires typical tenant improvements and is currently 77% occupied, substantial upside remains with 18,472 SF immediately available to lease as well as the opportunity to replace Let’s Skate (26,000 SF), who is paying below market rent, with the landlord’s ability to terminate. Sponsor is currently exploring the possibility of incorporating a fitness center into the current tenant mix, and even further upside is available with the potential development, sale, or ground lease of an outparcel located along Fifth Avenue, next to one of the center’s five points of ingress/egress.


The Manager may determine that additional capital is needed to fund tenant improvements in order to attract or retain tenants at the Property. Sponsor, however, have committed to fund up to $2M of any additional tenant improvements needed by making additional capital contributions to the Manager, which will then contribute that additional capital to Property Owner.
