Pearlmark Closes on La Jolla Terrace

Chicago, IL (August 3, 2020) – Pearlmark, in partnership with Sinatra & Company Real Estate, closed on the acquisition of La Jolla Terrace, a 1984-vintage, 340-unit apartment complex located in Fort Worth, Texas. The property, currently 97% occupied, is located between downtown Fort Worth and downtown Arlington along I-30 and benefits from its proximity to multiple employment centers as well as Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. This is Pearlmark and Sinatra & Co.’s second Dallas-area multifamily acquisition as part of a business plan to create a workforce housing portfolio in the region.

Pearlmark and Sinatra & Co. plan to fully renovate and rebrand the property, including significant enhancements to unit interiors and exterior amenities. Sinatra & Co. will serve as both property and construction manager for the asset as part of its continued expansion in the Dallas-Fort Worth MSA.

Keith Page, lead executive on the transaction for Pearlmark stated, “We are excited to grow our partnership with Sinatra & Co. through the acquisition of La Jolla Terrace. We have developed an extensive value-add business plan that we look forward to implementing in the coming months. This acquisition creates another opportunity for Pearlmark to provide attractive rental housing at an affordable price point as part of our national workforce housing strategy.”

“We look forward to building on the success of our Dallas multifamily experience and partnering again with Pearlmark to expand our footprint in this exciting region,” said Nick Sinatra, Founder and CEO of Sinatra & Company Real Estate.

Stephen Quazzo, CEO for Pearlmark, also commented, “Closing this transaction during the COVID-19 pandemic required incredible persistence and patience, but we believe there is tremendous value to be created at La Jolla Terrace and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Sinatra & Co. in Dallas-Fort Worth."
