Wednesday, 16. June 2021 14:00

DALLAS, June 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RockFarmer Properties, a privately owned, fully integrated vertical development and investment firm based in New York City, is pleased to announce its purchase of two adjacent gated garden-style multifamily rental communities—98Fifty and Apex—in Dallas, Texas for an undisclosed price.

The off-market transaction marks RockFarmer Properties’ first foray into the Dallas-Fort Worth multifamily market—and the marks the first purchase made by RockFarmer’s recently launched “Opportunity Fund V.” The company plans additional acquisitions of value-add commercial and multifamily assets across the Sun Belt states in the near term—including the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio, Texas markets. RockFarmer is expected to announce additional Texas-based acquisitions in the coming weeks.

“We are extremely bullish on value-add properties located in stable communities and districts experiencing continued growth. 98Fifty and Apex are two well-located rental communities with a lot of upside potential,” said John Petras, Principal of RockFarmer Properties. “We are looking to be an extremely active investor throughout 2021.”

RockFarmer Properties plans to add significant value to 98Fifty and Apex through timely unit renovations while enhancing the community wide amenities and common areas at each property.

“RockFarmer is excited to enter the Dallas-Fort Worth multifamily market with the acquisition of 98Fifty and Apex as our first purchases though our new Opportunity Fund V,” said George Michelis, Principal of RockFarmer Properties. “With more than 40 years of experience managing multifamily properties and communities, we look forward to implementing meaningful upgrades and enhancements to both properties while working closely with residents and staff to prioritize any immediate needs.”

Dallas-based NorthMarq represented the buyer and the seller in the off-market transaction. The firm also helped secure financing for the acquisition on RockFarmer’s behalf.

To date, RockFarmer Properties has successfully executed the development, acquisition, renovation, repositioning and sale of more than 70 transformative residential and commercial properties across New York and the Sun Belt states totaling more than $2B.

“The purchase of 98Fifty and Apex is an exciting opportunity that came together quickly over the past several months—and is exactly the type of investment RockFarmer is keen on making moving forward as we continue to see significant interest in the new fund,” said Brian Getzler, Vice President of Acquisitions at RockFarmer Properties.
