Fund Description

T2 Access Fund LLC (the “Fund”) will invest substantially all of its assets in T2 Opportunity Fund V, LP (“T2”). T2 is raising $100 million to invest in mid-western multi family and other commercial real estate in off market and opportunistic transactions. Building upon a track record of delivering 15%+ net annual returns since inception, T2 will pay 8% annualized Preferred Return. T2 manages $225 million and has consumated over 100 real estate acquisitions.


Key Considerations

  • Access to an Institutional Fund - The Fund provides individual investors with access to a $100 million institutional real estate fund named T2 Opportunity Fund V, LP.
  • Low Minimum Investment - The Fund has a low minimum investment amount per investor. The Fund will aggregate the capital raised with other investors allowing it to meet the high minimum investment amount of T2 and obtain a discounted management fee if the Fund invests over $3 million into T2.
  • Proven Track Record - delivering 15%+ net annual returns
  • Attractive Investment Markets - T2’s Investment Locations: Missouri, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, Tennesee.
  • Unique Investment Strategy - In spite of the current landscape, T2 continues to find compelling investment opportunities. The opportunities generally emanate from (i) existing relationships that provide true off-market opportunities, (ii) idiosyncratic situations that other prospective investors shy away from, and/or (iii) T2’s widespread reputation for executing on the “smaller” end of the market.
  • High Preferred Return - T2 pays a 8% Preferred Return.

T2 Investment Objectives

Maximizing Returns through Value-Creation Strategies

  • T2 employs an opportunistic investment strategy focused on exploiting idiosyncratic price dislocations among commercial real estate assets.
  • T2 will seek to acquire real estate properties that have a clear value-add component and also originate, invest in, or acquire first, junior or participation interests in loans, debt instruments and other financings secured by a broad range of commercial real properties or interests in commercial real properties.
  • Financings will be structured as senior debt, mezzanine debt, preferred equity investments or hybrid investments.
  • T2 will focus primarily on properties that are undervalued or poised for recovery, including assets that may be overlooked by other institutional investors.
  • T2 expects to seek Investments in turnaround situations, repositioning opportunities, recapitalizations, partner buyouts, and value-added situations.
  • T2 will seek properties that provide opportunistic discounts to present market value, as well as non-institutional assets, often in out-of-favor categories, where yields may be more attractive and debt coverage is higher.
  • T2 will also offer bridge-financing to real estate developers and mortgage brokers. Both debt and preferred equity financing may be provided for borrowers seeking an opportunity that may require a rapid closing or loans discounted by conventional lenders due to special situations relating to the property or borrower.

Why Now May Be a Good Time to Invest

Investors in the T2 Fund can benefit from investing in opportunistic and value-add Multifamily Assets from:

  • Returns

    On a risk adjusted basis, multifamily assets are historically more favorable than other real estate sectors. A typically non-correlated asset, apartments rarely experience the volatility of other property types.

  • NOI Growth

    According to AXIOMetrics, multifamily was the only asset class demonstrating NOI growth over the past two years. At year-end 2015, NOI Growth in apartments exceeded 10% and was still growing while other asset classes were in decline (office 4.5%, industrial 3.9%, and retail 2.5%).

  • Increasing Demand

    The number of renters by choice and renters by necessity is increasing. Enrollment at colleges and universities throughout the country has remained strong resulting in record occupancy levels in both on- and off-campus student housing facilities.

  • Occupancy

    Over the next four years, occupancy is projected to hover around 94.5% and 96.0% respectively in market rate multifamily and student housing.

  • Rent Growth

    Nationwide, rents continue to grow as a result of higher occupancy levels, constrained supply and fewer alternatives to renting.

  • Supply

    New supply is projected to average approximately 325,000 units per year over the next four years with absorption being at or near that number.

  • Favorable Financing

    Apartment communities continue to enjoy the most favorable financing terms of any of the commercial real estate sectors.

T2 Key Market Attributes

In spite of the current landscape, T2 continues to find compelling investment opportunities. The opportunities generally emanate from (i) existing relationships that provide true off-market opportunities, (ii) idiosyncratic situations that other prospective investors shy away from, and/or (iii) T2’s widespread reputation for executing on the “smaller” end of the market. Please see Important Disclosure Statement.

Outside of T2’s typical sourcing, several macro themes appear to be emerging that are expected to lead to other opportunities. Such themes include:

  • Perceived over-building of high-end multi-family properties
  • Record-setting pace of brick and mortar retail store closures and related bankruptcies
  • Relatively low YTD CMBS issuance ($12 billion in Q1 2017 vs $17 billion in Q1 2016 vs $26 billion in Q1 2015)
  • Increasing pressure on pension funds and other institutional investors for greater returns as well as liquidity

T2 Property Case Study

770 N. Halsted – Chicago, IL - Generated a 34% net IRR


Investment Overview

January 2013 acquisition of 4 adjoining, multi-tenant, loft office buildings totaling ±170,000 SF in the River West neighborhood of Chicago. The seller was a fatigued owner that was increasingly unwilling to contribute capital in order to drive occupancy beyond the 70% that existed at the time of T2’s acquisition. T2 and its Chicago-based operating partner opted to spend the funds necessary to improve common areas, tenant spaces, and broadly accentuate the creative loft office space. Ultimately, one of the four buildings (±22,000 SF) was sold to its 100% occupant, and the remaining property (±148,000 SF) sold to a New York-based family office (2015). The sale led to T2 realizing a 34% gross IRR and 2.79x gross MOIC.
