August 3, 2020

AUGUSTA, Ga. (August 3, 2020) – Capital Square 1031, a leading sponsor of Delaware statutory trust (DST) offerings for 1031 exchange and other accredited investors, announced today that the firm has launched CS1031 Residence at Riverwatch Apartments, DST. The Regulation D private placement is comprised of a newly constructed, Class A 260-unit apartment community in Augusta, Georgia.

“Capital Square has a clear vision for the 1031/DST program – to buy the best Class ’A’ and ’B’ apartment communities in the Southeast that generate stable cash flow and solid growth over time,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square. “These properties have performed exceptionally well, with over 98% of total rent collected on 28 apartment communities in the Southeast during the past 124 days of the COVID pandemic. Capital Square is finding exceptional opportunities in spite of the pandemic. When a competitor balked, Capital Square jumped and purchased this superior property at a materially lower price.”

CS1031 Residence at Riverwatch Apartments, DST seeks to raise $27 million in equity from accredited investors with a minimum investment of $50,000. The acquisition was financed by Fannie Mae, with a 2.90% fixed rate 10-year loan.

Located at 205 River Place, minutes from Downtown Augusta and many employers, Residence at Riverwatch is comprised of 265,761 rentable square feet of space with one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging in size from 765 square feet to 1,362 square feet. The property is situated on approximately 22 acres of land and features seven residential buildings, each with an elevator. Community amenities include a clubhouse, coffee bar, conference room and business center, 24-hour fitness studio and poolside pavilions with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. Additional amenities include a dog park, resort-style pool with expansive pool deck, pool house with a game room and kitchen, 40 garages for rent, a walking path to a dock on the Augusta Canal, boathouse for kayaks, paddleboards and canoes as well as gated entry, making this is a unique property without rival.

“Residence at Riverwatch boasts a favorable location along the Augusta Canal, which differentiates the multifamily community from all other competitors in the market,” said Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer. “Riverwatch was purchased from a best-in-class developer, with unmatched amenities and quality of life. Occupancy rates and rental increases are off-the-chart for this exceptional apartment community with unique features in the Riverwatch live-play-work neighborhood.”

Since inception, Capital Square has acquired 111 real estate assets for approximately 2,200 investors nationwide seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code and other investors seeking cash flow and appreciation potential.
