TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2018 /CNW/ - Amuka Capital today announced that it has led a $1,026,500 capital raise for the Tollo Group's Arcis development in South Calgary. Funds raised from over 25 accredited investors were used to acquire the land in Marda Loop on 29th Ave SW in October 2018 and develop it into a four-unit luxury development to be built by Lear Construction Management Ltd.
Amuka Capital believes that the uniqueness of this project, combined with the strength in the luxury Calgary real estate market will be able to provide investors with strong risk-adjusted returns.
"It's not everyday you have the opportunity to develop a unique 4-unit luxury development in a single family home neighbourhood. Our partners at Tollo Group and Lear Construction Management put together a unique opportunity both for the residents and the investors" said Ben Feferman, Managing Partner of Amuka Capital.
"I flew out to see the site in June 2018 and loved it from the first moment I laid my eyes on the property. An offering like this one does not come by our desk very often, and when it does, we jump on the opportunity to see if it fits our mandate through our extensive due diligence process. We had to underwrite this offering with precision while balancing a quick need for execution on the capital raise. It was no easy task, but we believe investors deserve better and I like to go the extra mile to try and protect investor capital" said Aaron Meckler, Amuka Capital's Chief Investment Officer.
"This project is situated on one of the best lots in South Calgary. While the site is very unique, it posed great design challenges with its aggressive slope. Challenging and unique characteristics required financial partners who also believed in the site and project as much as we did. Amuka Capital became as passionate about the project, and it showed in their performance." added Dan MacKinnon, Co-Founder, Tollo Group.
