(HOUSTON, TX) – Rycore Capital, as part of a new business relationship with Fairway America LLC, a national leader in middle market real estate private equity, acquired an off-market ~58,000 square foot Class B multi-tenant medical office property in Bellaire, Texas. The acquisition was completed through Rycore’s commingled fund business. The acquisition is the inaugural investment in the relationship between Rycore and Fairway.
As Co-Managers, Rycore Capital and Fairway America will provide asset management as well as investor relations and reporting services to the new venture. Verivest, a subsidiary of Fairway, will provide financial ongoing accounting, reporting, and tax services. Mike Navarro of Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton LLP represented the buyer as legal counsel.
“Rycore and Fairway are pleased to have executed on this acquisition together, offering investors access to a medical office property that we believe has significant upside through leasing, professional management and exit optionality with an excess land sale opportunity. The property fit very well with our firm’s investment objectives and should provide income and diversification benefits to our investors,” said Ryan Urech, Founder and CEO.
“Fairway is very excited to put together our first of what we hope are many deals with Ryan and Rycore,” said Matt Burk, CEO of Fairway America. “Both Rycore and the Bellaire asset are exactly the kinds of people and opportunities we work hard to make available to our investors.”
