THE PPA GROUP BUYS TIERRA BELLA APARTMENTS

News - PPA Group Buys Tierra Bella

AUSTIN, Texas— The PPA Group, an Austin-based real estate investment and development company has purchased the Tierra Bella apartments, a 205-unit community in Austin, TX.

Tierra Bella was purchased out of bankruptcy at a below market price. Built in 1985, the property has a
significant value-add component. Property improvements are scheduled to begin this month. The changes
that are expected include foundation and roof repairs, common area rehabilitation, and unit renovations.
The project is expected to take 6-months to complete.

“We know that Texas’ economy is flourishing at an incredible rate compared to other parts of the
country,” says Monte Lee-Wen, President and CEO of The PPA Group. “We’ve seen tremendous growth
in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas and we know that this is a prime opportunity to buy valueadd
multifamily properties and expand our portfolio which is why we purchased Tierra Bella.

The property was funded in less than 45 days with a loan from Beech Street Capital. “We are very
impressed with The PPA Group team. They were timely, professional, engaged, and worked hard with us
to meet the strict deadlines for a number of specific requirements,” said Brian Sykes from Beech Street
Capital. “We’ve developed a really good working relationship with PPA.”

“PPA has worked with Beech Street before and once again they did a fantastic job getting the loan closed
so quickly,” says John A. Latham, CIO of The PPA Group.
