The Tuckerman Group Announces Commencement of Multi-Family II Program

Business Editors


The Tuckerman Group, the real estate investment unit of State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), today announced the launch of its Multi-Family Development Program II. The Tuckerman Group’s Multi-Family Development Program II is an extension of its highly successful Multi-Family Development Program I, a specialized investment program focused on ground-up development and eventual sale of multi-family properties.

Development Program II will approach $200 million in total asset capitalization. Investors in the program include State Street Corporation and six other institutional investors, two of which participated in the Development Program I.

Donald Conover, chairman and chief executive officer of The Tuckerman Group, said: “We are extremely excited to embark on the second phase of our Multi-Family Development Program. We expect to continue the success of Program I by providing our investors with short-term capital growth and exceptional returns.”

The Tuckerman Group’s Multi-Family Development Program I was established in 1997 and was completed in March 2000. It financed the construction of five luxury apartment complexes throughout the United States, representing in excess of $108 million in total asset capitalization. Development Program I provided investors with a total internal rate of return (IRR) of 26.7 percent.

Concurrent with the kick off of Development Program II, The Tuckerman Group closed on a multi-family development project in Austin, Texas – Rolling Oaks. The property is the first investment for Development Program II and is a 494-unit, luxury, garden-style apartment community. The property consists of 26 three-story buildings containing a total of nearly 460,000 square feet. The development occupies a 39-acre site. Construction on Rolling Oaks began in May 2000, with delivery of the first units for occupancy by March 2001. Fairfield Residential LLC is the developer.

Charles Lauckhardt, president and chief investment officer of The Tuckerman Group, said: “We have a long-standing, successful relationship with Fairfield. We look forward to working with them again and are confident that they will deliver a high quality product.”

Fairfield Residential LLC is a privately-owned development, construction and property management company specializing in residential properties in 14 states. Fairfield has been involved in the planning and development of over 45,000 residential units, as well as the planning and development of large scale master-planned communities totaling over 2,000 acres. Fairfield was the developer of two very successful projects in Development Program I – Aviara Apartments, in Euless, Texas and Mira Vista at La Cantera, in San Antonio, Texas.
