Meadow Partners announced today the successful completion of its first transaction in London through Meadow Real Estate Fund I LP (“Fund I”). The investment, a direct acquisition of a Class A office building located in an established M25 office market, offers superior risk-adjusted returns and significant downside protection to Fund I investors.
Fund I, using discretionary capital commitments from institutional investors, is actively pursuing numerous opportunities in London amidst a constrained investment environment. Financial institutions have been slow to reduce legacy exposure to real estat e and new debt finance is available in extremely limited quantity. These challenging market dynamics, coupled with the Partners’ significant experience and creative capital solutions, has presented the firm with a rare and highly attractive investment window and a robust pipeline of potential investments. The recently closed transaction in London is exemplary of Meadow Partners’ unique execution capabilities and targeted origination approach.
Meadow Real Estate Fund I LP was formed to continue the successful investment track record of Meadow Partners’ management team. Meadow Partners was founded in early 2009 by Jeffrey M. Kaplan, previously Managing Principal and Co-Chairman of the Investment Committee of Westbrook Partners. Mr. Kaplan and his two partners, J. Andrew McDaniel and Timothy P. Yantz, have a history of successfully investing together, with over 40 years of collective real estate investment experience.
Fund I invests in equity, debt, preferred equity and other hybrid structures and targets single asset, portfolio and entity-level transactions. Outright acquisitions of properties and loans are pursued as well as recapitalizations and restructurings with existing property owners and lenders. Meadow Partners seeks investments where there is a current value dislocation as well as opportunities to add value through aggressive asset management. Target property types include office, multi-family residential, hotel, retail and industrial.
Meadow Partners’ corporate headquarters is located at 55 East 59th S treet, Suite 1700, New York, NY 10022. For more information, email: info rmation @www.meadowpartners02.dev
