ARDEN GROUP ANNOUNCES FINAL CLOSE OF ARDEN REAL ESTATE PARTNERS, III L.P. AT $500 MILLION
5Capital Funds Placement served as an advisor to the firm on their successful fundraise
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (June 4, 2021) – Arden Group (“Arden”) is pleased to announce the final close of the firm’s third fully discretionary equity fund, Arden Real Estate Partners, III L.P. (“AREP III” or the “Fund”), at $500 million. 5Capital Funds Placement served as an advisor to the firm on their successful fundraise.
Craig A. Spencer, Arden’s CEO, stated “although the global pandemic slowed fundraising, we are pleased that we were able to reach our hard cap, exceeding our initial target of $300M by $200 million or 66%, with approximately 60% of the capital raised from institutional investors.
Allan Majotra, Managing Partner at 5Capital noted “Arden remains a high conviction real estate private equity fund manager for us. It is clear that a number of our institutional investors and family offices agree with us, and that is reflected in both the re-ups, as well as a number of first time LPs, in AREP III.”
The Fund has been able to make some opportunistic acquisitions due to the dislocation created by the global pandemic in all three of its verticals: light/last mile industrial, office and hotel, with total equity deployed to date at $350 million.
