Admiral Capital, in Partnership With Bay West Development, Acquires San Tomas Plaza Shopping Center in the Bay Area

January 14th, 2016



CAMPBELL, CA – Admiral Capital Group and Bay West Development have acquired San Tomas Plaza Shopping Center located in Campbell, CA. The 119,826 square foot property represents Admiral’s second investment in the Bay Area and its first joint venture with Bay West. The acquisition is the first investment for the newly formed Admiral Capital Real Estate Fund II.

The property is located in an infill location in Silicon Valley and is only a few minutes’ drive from the headquarters of industry leading tech companies such as Apple and Netflix. The surrounding communities of Campbell, Saratoga, and Cupertino are some of the most affluent communities in the Bay Area. San Tomas totals over 9 acres in one of the strongest retail trade areas in the Bay Area.

San Tomas has been owned by the same partnership since 1972, providing an attractive value-add opportunity. Admiral anticipates investing capital to reposition the asset to Class A through exterior enhancements to the façade, roofs, signage and landscaping. Admiral intends to upgrade the overall quality of the tenants by leveraging Bay West’s local network.

“San Tomas is located in a highly desirable location with strong daily traffic counts. The Bay Area has seen tremendous job growth and this sub-market is under-served from a retail stand point,” said Dan Bassichis, Co-Founder of Admiral. “We continue to believe in the region’s underlying fundamentals and are looking forward to executing on our transformative vision for the property with Bay West, a partner with long-tenured success in this market,” added Bassichis.

“On behalf of my partners at Bay West Development, I am delighted to be teaming up with Admiral Capital,” said Bill Poland, Bay West Founder. “We are thrilled with the opportunity and look forward to having the strategy unfold. We have enjoyed previous success in Silicon Valley and see San Tomas as a unique value add investment.”

“We are very excited to make another Bay Area investment,” said David Robinson, Admiral Co-Founder. “The Bay Area continues to be the country’s hotbed for technology companies with extraordinary growth and we see an immediate opportunity to improve the retail offering at San Tomas for local residents and businesses, while achieving attractive returns for our investors.”

The Roxborough Group and Continental Realty Advisors Acquire Apartment Complex in Henderson, Nevada

November 18th, 2015

Roxborough Group


Privately Held Real Estate Investment Firm and Denver Based Multi-Family Real Estate Owner/Operator Purchase 400-Unit, Turtle Creek Apartment Complex

HENDERSON, NV- Roxborough Fund I, an affiliate of San Francisco-based real estate investment firm The Roxborough Group, LLC in partnership with Continental Realty Advisors, Ltd. (“CRA”), a Denver-based multi-family investment and management firm, completed the acquisition of Turtle Creek Apartments, located in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson, Nevada. Deal terms remain undisclosed.

The 400-unit apartment complex is located in Henderson, Nevada, one of the most desirable submarkets of Las Vegas. The property’s immediate location is particularly attractive due to its close proximity to Union Village, a 155-acre health care complex currently under construction on its first phase (Henderson Hospital), which is due to deliver in October 2016. Turtle Creek will benefit from the new hospital, which is anticipated to create over 700 new jobs. Also, Union Village is expected to create 17,000 direct and indirect jobs after full build-out.

The property is located near a strong amenity base including the Sunset Galleria, Sunmark Plaza shopping centers and the adjacent 96-acre Silver Bowl public park. The property also offers convenient regional access through the adjacent Interstate 515 on ramp and Boulder Highway.

“We are excited for the opportunity to acquire an eight-year-old asset at a significant discount to replacement cost in a unique location on the cusp of a job growth resurgence from the nearby medical village development,” said founder and managing partner of The Roxborough Group, Marc Perrin. “The Las Vegas market is seeing tremendous rent growth and economic signs are indicating a continued post-recession recovery.”

Turtle Creek is the first acquisition for the partners, who plan to renovate the units and common areas to capitalize on the rent growth in the market. CRA is a proven partner in this space and the company’s experience will be critical to the renovation project and execution of the overall business plan at Turtle Creek.

“We are excited to re-enter the Las Vegas market, and believe it is an opportune time to capitalize on significant demand for lifestyle communities in the area,” said David Snyder, chairman of Continental Realty Advisors. “The combination of the Roxborough Group and Continental Realty Advisors brings together two dynamic investment teams that are known for creativity and opportunistic investing.”

CRA and Roxborough’s plans include an interior renovation program, an upgrade of the property’s common areas and amenities, as well as a new entrance off the Boulder Highway for improved access and visibility. The repositioning is designed to take an underperforming asset through a series of targeted improvements and capitalize on the recovering Henderson and Las Vegas economy.

“Turtle Creek Apartments will become a community known for its lifestyle and amenities, while still providing value for its resident clients,” added Snyder. “We look forward to the excitement that will be created with the planned improvements to this community.”
