August 5, 2021

This sale represents the second-highest total return for a DST sponsored by Capital Square.

TUCSON, Ariz. (Aug. 5, 2021) Capital Square 1031, a leading sponsor of Delaware statutory trust (DST) offerings for 1031 exchange and other accredited investors, announced the $32 million sale of Galeria del Rio, a 101-unit townhome community in Tucson, Arizona. The property was owned by a group of DST investors who realized 222.23% total return, or a 23.04% annualized return, from their 1031 exchange investment.*

This property generated the second-highest total return for a DST sponsored by Capital Square.

“Capital Square has proven its ability to buy, finance, manage and sell tax-advantaged real estate nationwide,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer. “This is the twelfth offering Capital Square has taken full cycle, resulting in exceptional returns for investors. The sale of Galeria del Rio generated the second-highest total return for a DST sponsored by Capital Square, with over 222% total return. It’s not surprising that most investors reinvested their proceeds in a new DST sponsored by Capital Square to continue the tax deferral.”

Capital Square acquired the 11.5-acre property, located at 5132 N. Prairie Clover Trail, in March 2016. The property was originally acquired at an investment cost of $21.145 million. Galeria del Rio consists of 35 two-story buildings, with three- and four-bedroom townhome units. Each unit comes with 2.5 bathrooms, an attached two-car garage and a small private enclosed back yard. Property amenities include 24-hour controlled access, an outdoor swimming pool, a community roof deck area and a fitness center. Additional amenities include a community club room and 70 parking spaces.

Since formation, Capital Square has sponsored 101 investment offerings comprised of 132 Individual properties for over 3,300 investors across the nation. Capital Square has taken 12 of the DST offerings full cycle, resulting in an average 13.29% annual return and an average 162.89% total return.

“This is another step forward for many of our investors who are building family wealth by structuring a series of exchanges throughout their lifetimes,” added Rogers.
