Pearlmark Closes on The Byron at Trophy Club

Chicago, IL (May 7, 2018) Pearlmark today announced it has closed on a $12.27 million mezzanine loan investment for the development of a 250-unit luxury apartment complex in the Dallas/Ft. Worth suburb of Trophy Club, Texas. The investment was originated by Pearlmark and made on behalf of Pearlmark Mezzanine Realty Partners IV, L.P. (“Mezz IV). The Byron at Trophy Club is being developed by North American Properties (“NAP”).

The property upon completion will include 250 apartment units, a 420-car parking garage, a resort-style pool and a two-story fitness facility. The property’s location offers residents easy access to several major employers, including Deloitte University, Fidelity and Charles Schwab.

Mark Witt, Managing Director of Pearlmark, arranged the transaction. Mr. Witt commented, “This location has seen very strong population growth and is an affluent suburb of Dallas/Ft. Worth. Additionally, it has great access to transportation including the DFW International Airport. This project offers us the opportunity to invest in a new apartment project with an experienced, repeat sponsor in a strong location.”

Doug Lyons, Head of Debt Investments for Pearlmark, further commented, “We are thrilled to partner with NAP on capitalizing this project given its outstanding location in a submarket that has not seen any new multifamily product in several decades, and NAP’s demonstrated track record for delivering superior product.”

It is the firm’s exclusive mezzanine investment vehicle, fulfilling borrower demand for mezzanine debt solutions on refinancings, recapitalizations, acquisitions, and selective development projects.
