The Avenue Apartments

Las Vegas, NV

The JKAM Diversified Real Estate Fund is participating in a deal in Las Vegas with the same Operating Partners who are greatly exceeding expectations. Our Phoenix, AZ asset with this Partner is performing 22% over our initial projections.

This Operating Partner has taken 16 communities full cycle with an average hold time of less than 2 years and a project-level IRR of 45.50%.

Our Fund has already made a substantial commitment to this project, and we have negotiated a sweetheart deal with the Operating Partner. Over the next week, the Fund can secure an estimated 3-5% increase on returns from this project through commitment of an additional $500k+.
