Alpha Residential Trust,(ART) was organized to acquire, develop, and manage institutional quality multifamily apartment properties in US growth markets with strong demographic and employment trends with constrained supply.  ART is focused on delivering strong risk-adjusted returns.

ART is currently focused on strategic markets in certain growth US MSAs (see list below) where we believe we can continue to deliver very attractive risk-adjusted return to investors.  ART’s near term strategy is to acquire, develop, and manage Class A & B garden style and mid-rise multifamily properties within a 50-mile radius of these anchor MSA.

ART’s strategy revolves around acquiring Class A & B (“small” 40 to 200-unit garden style and mid-rise) multifamily properties with strong CAP rates and sustainable cash flow growth. ART is focused on building a strong portfolio of well-located garden styles and mid-rise multifamily asset within demand growth, job growth, and supply constrained secondary/tertiary markets to generate very attractive risk adjusted returns. Continued FFO growth from these properties will be realized through rent growth and operating efficiency.

ART is pioneering a very robust strategy around “small multi-family properties (40-200 units).” ART is a market leader in small balance real estate (SBRE)deploying technology and analytics efficiently to drive operational efficiencies and growth. We believe there is considerable value in this fragmented multifamily space.  Managed properly and scaled efficiently with technology we see this unique opportunity generating very attractive returns.  Our investment strategy is to execute a disciplined acquisition strategy over the next five years, behind very strong momentum in the multifamily REIT space. The macroeconomic outlook for renters of apartments is a favorable environment.  ART’s growth strategy is to expand into the strategic markets listed below, build a strong portfolio of garden style and mid-rise multifamily units, with the potential exit through a sale or public market listing during this strong growth period.

I am in there GP fund and Healthcare NNN Fund great communication, CEO is very accessible,  distributions come on time...so no issues. For all the negatives i hear with Alpha(all coming from ppl who are not LP's)  they sure find great deals and get them funded. If you had an issue with Alpha and addressed it with them and the issue was resolved then it ceases to be a issue. All sponsors are good... until their not!

Alpha is a good sponsor.

I am in several of Alpha deals, but not their GP deal that some have commented on.  All properties have been paying their preferred distributions in a timely manner, and I have always been able to communicate with their leaders.  I will continue to invest with them as they bring more opportunities either to Crowdstreet or directly.

This is interesting. I came to same conclusion. Found out they were rejected by another platform, first fund, unsure of them running a GP fund, returns made no sense given the plan.

I agree with Mark and had the same experience.

My decision to withdraw from the same deal was further influenced by the sponsor being declined by another platform because the sponsor called themselves a reit, which they weren't; then a trust (still called a trust) and they are not a trust.  Seems like a basic business knowledge issue to me.

Sponsor may be OK and just needs some experience.  My review of the fund track record makes me think it will be hard for them to reach their advertised target returns.

Invested with them very briefly. They reduced sponsor equity in my deal by 75% and was able to get a refund once this was disclosed.  Not a seasoned sponosr, but they did uncover a deal that had a good risk ajusted projected return.  Not a fan of last minute changes in the capital stack and doubt if I will invest with AR in the future.
