Canyon Partners and Anthem Properties Invest in Sacramento Multifamily Opportunity Zone Project; Secure Construction Loan from HSBC Bank

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC (“Canyon”) today announced its joint venture with Anthem Properties (“Anthem”) for the ground-up development of a 153-unit, mid-rise multifamily project with 10,000 sf of retail space located in Sacramento, California. Canyon is investing $18.8 million of equity in this development, which is located in a qualified opportunity zone. The project will commence construction immediately and is expected to achieve completion in the Spring of 2023. The joint venture also simultaneously closed on a $39.6 million construction loan from HSBC Bank, USA, N.A.

The project is centrally located at the intersection of 11th and J Streets in downtown Sacramento, within easy walking distance to the California State Capitol, Sacramento City Hall, and Downtown Commons. The transit-oriented development is also conveniently located near Cathedral Square Station on SacRT’s Blue Line, providing access to the greater Sacramento area. Project amenities will include a fitness center, courtyard, and a rooftop deck offering views of the Capitol building and surrounding city.

“Sacramento continues to attract new residents into what’s already one of the healthiest multifamily markets in the country,” says Riaan De Beer, Anthem’s Vice-President, Development. “Our new project in partnership with Canyon goes a long way towards satisfying the need for community-oriented developments that will make a lasting positive impact on the area.”

This investment marks Canyon’s seventh joint venture investing in qualified opportunity zones and brings Canyon’s real estate portfolio across debt and equity investments to approximately $6.1 billion of project capitalization.
