September 23, 2020

RICHMOND, Va. (Sep. 23, 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 Williamsburg VA Apartments, DST. The Regulation D private placement is comprised of Elan Williamsburg, a newly constructed, Class A apartment community in Williamsburg, Virginia.

“Elan Williamsburg is the latest in a line of Class A multifamily communities acquired by Capital Square directly from developers following the initial lease-up of the property,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Capital Square acquires properties of this caliber for 1031 exchange and cash investors who seek the safety and security of a brand new property under warranty along with competitive cash flow and upside appreciation over time.”

CS1031 Williamsburg VA Apartments, DST seeks to raise $21.4 million in equity from accredited investors with a minimum investment of $50,000. The acquisition was financed by Fannie Mae with a 2.80% fixed rate 10-year loan.

Located at 100 Whitworth Way in the heart of Hampton Roads, Elan Williamsburg is comprised of 198 units. The community features one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging in size from 712 square feet to 1,232 square feet. Situated on approximately 9 acres of land, Elan Williamsburg has four three-story buildings and a clubhouse. The multifamily community was constructed in 2018 and is approximately 93% occupied as of August 7, 2020.

Elan Williamsburg has resort-style amenities, including a luxurious resident clubhouse; beach entry pool with two designated lap lanes; poolside fire pit lounge; game room; a fitness center, which includes Peloton and SYNRGY360; and a yoga room where classes are also held. Additional amenities include summer kitchens with outdoor grilling and dining areas; an Amazon Hub package concierge, garage parking, additional storage, walking trails throughout the community and direct access to The Reserve trail network.

“Elan Williamsburg is a best-in-class multifamily community that benefits from its favorable location as well as its diverse resident base,” said Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer. “This DST offering is a unique opportunity for investors to own one of the best assets within a growing market – a property that most would not be able to afford on their own.”

Since inception, Capital Square has acquired 113 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.
