CapStack Partners Successfully Stabilizes Chapel Hill REO Less Than a Year After Acquisition

The company's investment banking group advised on the refinance

CapStack Partners (“CapStack”) is pleased to announce it has completed the turnaround and refinance of 88 Vilcom Center Drive in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The REO office property was acquired less than a year ago from a lender that had previously foreclosed on it.

At the time, the property was 40% occupied with deferred maintenance issues. CapStack successfully implemented a building-wide renovation plan and brought occupancy up to 97.5%. “We knew from the very beginning that this asset was a diamond in the rough,” said David Blatt, CEO of CapStack. “It is exceptionally well-located in Raleigh-Durham, which is a high-growth, supply-constrained office market. Our goal was to quickly upgrade the asset, sign new leases and secure financing that would allow us to hold the property for the long term.”

Blatt added, “This is an excellent case study on how CapStack forms a value creation plan and effectively executes it for the benefit of our investors.”

CapStack’s investment banking division placed the 10-year fixed-rate mortgage on the property. “Once again, we were able to leverage both our investment management and capital markets capabilities for our clients’ benefit.” ​​Blatt continued, "Overall, the firm is positioned for accelerated growth and we are quite excited for what's to come in 2020.”
